Features
Alternative Rock by : Dave Thompson


This book looks inside the artists and music that transformed the American and British soundscape of the 1980s and '90s. Scene-setting essays – some with interviews of key figures – explore alternative rock's primary influences; from Captain Beefheart to Brian Eno; and its many subgenres; from punk to grunge and Brit pop to trip hop. Reviews and profiles cover over 2;000 recordings and more than 500 musicians; such as The Beastie Boys; The Cure; R.E.M.; Marilyn Manson; XTC and hundreds more. This comprehensive guide also examines the cultural scenes; technologies and people behind the alternative sound. From the author of Depeche Mode and Never Fade Away: The Kurt Cobain Story.
