A comprehensive, well researched and eminently readable exploration of women in music in the 1970s and 1980s. A must for music lovers, ageing punks and especially for those women who paved the way for women to be regarded properly as musicians..not just eye candy backing singers

one last review 20 Oct. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't write reviews anymore , because who cares about my opinion anyway? But I have to say something about this work. Lost women in rock is an excellent book about punk rock history and the bands that got lost in its archives. I always had a fondness for the slits, x ray specks, raincoats and many others that cover the late 70s and early 80s time period in Britain. RIP Ari Up and Poly Styrene!

Useful, interesting book 23 Oct. 2014
By Senora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Useful, interesting book. Buy it.

Side note: Fitting and fulfilling to place Tessa Pollitt on the cover, and the Slits finally getting their due. No band was more important to me as a teenaged girl, and they still mean a lot even after 30+ years.
