Death to Trad Rock

Death to Trad Rock

From the publisher...

In the 1980s, the charts overflowed with what felt to many like the most boring pop music ever made — and the underground exploded. The postpunk scene was a diverse collection of bands brought together by independent releases and aided by reportage in fanzines and airplay by John Peel. This is the first time this era of music has been analyzed in such depth, exploring the loose confederation of noisenik outfits including Three Johns, the Membranes, the Ex, Wedding Present, A Witness, Bogshed, and Big Flame.
