A fascinating culture-defining thesis on the postmodern influence of pop. Morley was around when the Sex Pistols were first tuning up in 1976 and, using his decades as an influential rock writer and thinker, lends academic weight to his poetic musings.

Essential for musical obsessives and aspiring dilettantes of sound.
