Présentation de l'éditeur

'A fantastic tribute to an amazingly creative musical period . . . An instant pop classic, worthy of a place on your shelves beside the handful of music books that really matter.' John McTernan, Scotland on Sunday

Punk revitalized rock in the mid-seventies, but the movement soon degenerated into self-parody. Rip It Up and Start Again is the first book-length celebration of what happened next: post-punk bands who dedicated themselves to fulfilling punk's unfinished musical revolution. 1978 - 1984 rivals the sixties for the sheer amount of fabulous music created, the spirit of adventure and possibility that infused it, and the way the sounds felt inextricably connected to the political and social turbulence of the day. Simon Reynolds, acclaimed author of Energy Flash, recreates a time of tremendous urgency and idealism in pop music. Packed with anecdote and insight, populated by charismatic and maverick characters, Rip It Up and Start Again stands as one of the most inspired and inspiring books on popular music ever written.

'I had never expected there to be a book on this subject; had I done so, I would never have dared to hope it could be as good as this.' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian Book of the Week

'This remarkable and perfectly timed cultural history is required reading.' Q Magazine

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Creative Destruction and Renewal 24 juillet 2008
Par S. Shukaitis - Publié sur
This is a marvelous book. I had never thought about or realized the connections and relations between all the different tendrils of post-punk, avant-garde experimentation, and new pop (although with the latter the connections are a bit disconcerting to find out). Reynolds does a great job tracing out the evolution of the different bands emerging in the wake of the 'implosion' of the first wave of punk. For me one of the most interesting aspects is finding a way to keep open and maintain the kind of creative space that punk briefly opened but could not maintain as it became reduced to cliche and formula. Of course post-punk (or for that matter any other musical genre or expression) could be subjected to the same process, all the more requiring, as the title says, ripping it up and starting again. A sort of grammar of creative destructive and renewal. I could quibble about performers that it would have been nice to hear more about (Nina Hagen, Au Pairs, the Cravats, the more experimental bands coming out of the Crass Records milieux), but Reynolds has covered so many artists so well that might be a bit rude. Although apparently I just did it all the same. Nevertheless, an excellent book, particularly for those of us like myself who spent years trawling around used record stores trying to find records by artists who is the US remained fairly obscure, and thus didn't know much of anything about the relations between them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Phenomenal 16 janvier 2014

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an excellent and comprehensive work and simply one of my all time favorite books. Sadly, there in an American version that has many more reviews and is being savaged because the American publisher removed 200 pages worth of material from this text and made other inappropriate changes. Those reviewers should expressed their appropriate disdain for that publisher, should really include a write-up here. The prose is gripping and compelling with a sense of urgency and the information is thoroughly researched. This is a great great book.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good coverage of a neglected subgenre 21 mars 2013

While it doesn't cover every notable post-punk band equally or quite as inexhaustibly as other books I've read on music genres, it does a very good job and covers a wide ground. An excellent resource on this neglected subgenre of rock music that I would recommend to any fan.

Lies, exaggerations and misquotations. Plus, they got all the names wrong...
