Wannabe

£16.99

Product description

Everyone knows who the Spice Girls Are. Posh, Sporty, Baby, Scary and Ginger collectively became the most famous pop trademark of the 1990s. For a while they were the biggest-selling act on planet pop, while each of them - Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell still automatically commands front page/cover feature status in her own right. Yet despite the acres of newsprint devoted to their comings and goings, the innumerable perky soundbites and endless in your face photospreads, remarkably little effort has been put into analysing and explaining the Spice Girls phenomenon and even less credit given for the spectacular and unprecedented scale of their achievements. This will be the first book to examine the life and times of the Spice Girls in a way that puts the group and their music into a broader social and historical context. Combining meticulously researched biographical narrative with an insider's account of pop in the 1990s and 2000s it will open a window onto the backstage lot of Spiceworld and much more besides.

Omnibus Press hardback with intact DJ. Black cloth covered boards with silver lettering to spine. Good binding. There are a number of pencil lines alongside passages of interest: I could not find any permanent marks.
