Bit of a let down
on 5 January 2014
Firstly I will watch any documentary or read any book on music regardless of whether I like the artist or genre. So when I heard about this book from the author being interviewed on 6music I was very intrigued and not put off by previous comments.
Have to agree there is a lack of female writers (PJ Harvey for example).
There is also a lack of any genre other than white rock. There are some very inspiring writers but there is a lack of hip hop or reggae. Roots Manuva is a fabulous writer and although not in limelight a credible artist.
But I did enjoy the chapters with Lily Allen, John Lydon and Noel Gallagher (even though I'm not a fan of him or Oasis) and think this due to them not being pretentious about their art.
