An essential book on post-punk, and a must for any serious pop music fan. In this, the first book to take a big-picture view of the entire post-punk period, acclaimed author and music journalist Simon Reynolds recreates a time of tremendous urgency and idealism in pop music. Full of anecdote and insight, and featuring the likes of Joy Division, The Fall, Pere Ubu, PiL and Talking Heads, "Rip It Up and Start Again" is an inspired and fascinating take on the post-punk period, from New Wave to Ska and the New Romantics. Indeed, with masses of glowing media attention, "Rip It Up" has been universally hailed as the seminal text on this extraordinary period of music.
