5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Sheffield Music, 24 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Beats Working for a Living: Sheffield Popular Music 1973-1984 (Paperback)
Martin Lilleker, here produces the musical Bible of Sheffield from the mid 70's to mid 80's, taking in the pre-Punk (but just as innovative and potentially dangerous)avant-garde sounds of Cabaret Voltaire, the initiation school of 'Musical Vomit' (who featured many future Sheffield musical talents within their midst),through to the Punk period followed by the Human League, Vice Versa, Artery, Stunt Kites, I'm so Hollow, Pulp and many many more.
Fact-filled and boasting countless rare and hardly seen photos, this A-Z of almost anyone worth mentioning to have had Our Generation: The Punk and Mod Children of Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncastera crack at the Steel Cities alternative talent contest, is an absolute must for any fan of the era, be they from the region or not. As with much of the music, be it number one hits of the Human league or the numerous 'never made it's but deserved to have's'...the book likewise transcends the provinces and aims successfully to capture the imagination of any true music enthusiast nation wide or world wide. A proper job WELL DONE!

also check out this book which also covers the Sheffield Punk and Post-Punk scene including Artery,I'm so Hollow,Pulp Clock DVA, Stunt Kites and many more with 100's of exclusive and previously unpublished photos. This is Our Generation Calling: Punk and Mod in and Around Sheffield - The Conclusion
