...I am currently reading the US version, and I hear that the UK edition includes much, much more. Is this the proper one to purchase?
Anyway, despite reading the condensed version, this book has really given a feeling of placement to post-punk, which I always thought of as being an umbrella-term for many varied artists. It's all beautifully crafted together and covers many off-shoots and movements. I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in alternative and engaging music.
