very informative read. had to read it for a class (and subsequently conform all of my academic output to the models outlined in the book) but i still got a lot out of it. just as helpful for the homebody as for the international jet-setter.

a fantastic resource for delving into those seven wondrous years of quirky music. keep a notepad handy so you can write down all the bands that capture your interest - you'll be occupied for months, even with P2P technology in your corner.
