Ben Thompson (au). Someone once said that ‘pop music is an argument anyone can join in’. This book turns that argument into a riotous bar-room brawl, as a frontier town of unruly pop pioneers (from Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry to Lemmy from Motorhead, from Captain Beefheart to The Chemical Brothers to Sir Cliff Richard) punch it out in a gleeful free-for-all. Part pop hall of fame, part self-help manual, & part visionary manifesto, the book cuts through the waxy build-up of conventional wisdom & gains direct access to the soul’s inner ear. Covering medium, method & message, Thompson meets the DJs who determine what we hear, then moves backwards to interview Eminem & Orbital on how they create. Captures the pop experience with a rare passion. Photos.
