Noted music journalist Simon Reynolds builds on the foundations he lay in the book RIP IT UP AND START AGAIN with this collection of essays. Or perhaps these essays are the recursive foundation for the analysis in the earlier book--investigations of the music that emerged from the dust and rubble of punk rock. But either way this volume contains intelligent and exploratory interviews with some of the most important artists of the elusively defined genre known as post-punk. From Ian Curtis of Joy Division to Brian Eno, to Lydia Lunch and David Byrne from the Talking Heads--the discussions Reynolds holds with these artists present new insights into this influential and aesthetically diverse music scene.
