The Faber Book Of Pop Reviews
This book is a real treasure house of lively, earthy, evocative eye-witness and fictional accounts of what made music and fashion so exciting from the fities and sixties on. One item entitled "In defence of Disco' made me understand its virtues for the first time, albeit nearly 40 years later! It also gives more than usual space to the voices of women and those on the periphery at the time. And its big: more than you can digest in a long week-end! I think its out of print so I suggest you keep a sharp look out for it.
A must read to anyone who's interested in pop culture. Savage and Kureishi did an amazing job with the selection - it's a perfect balance of thorought analysis and emotional first-hand accounts. You can read an excerpt from Warhol's diary (and it's a funny feeling to realize that "Marti" he's talking about is Scorsese) next to a serious sociological article. And you simply can't get bored, if only for the number of anecdotes.
an article about just about everything pop......
