The great indie discography

£19.99

Product description

Large, extremely heavy directory listing every track recorded by more than 2,000 artists. The bright pink paper cover has no discolouration or fading. The upper front corner is lightly bumped and the lower front corner is turned up slightly, both the back cover corners are in good condition. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound.

The definitive history of independent music - updated and revised. In his usual opinionated but deeply knowledgeable way, Martin C Strong has chronicled the careers of those musicians who positioned themselves outside the mainstream of conventional 'pop'. From the Americans like The Velvet Underground and Captain Beefheart who offered something different to the flower power'n'peace of the 60s, through the filth and fury of punk, to the acid house culture that spawned the Happy Mondays and Primal Scream, and onto the ascension of American grunge and Nirvana, this provides another dizzying feat of research. For those with more discerning tastes there really is no alternative.
