'An exhilarating history of pop - a brilliant and joyous book' Guardian 'From Cage's 4'33' of silence to total noise, and everything in between - a passionate, irresistible encouragement to listen more, and to listen better' Sunday Times 'At his best he's the Brian Eno of the sentence, setting the whole page buzzing with oblique strategies: the missing link, maybe, between Kenneth Tynan and John Lydon' Time Out 'Briliant ... thought-provoking and intriguing ... anyone with even a pssing interest in perhaps the greatest modern art form should take a dip into these compulsive literary waters' Glasgow HeraldFrom the Publisher:
Has pop burnt itself out? Inspired by the video for Kylie Minogue's hit single 'Can't Get You Out of My Head', acclaimed rock journalist Paul Morley is driving with Kylie towards a virtual city built of sound and ideas in search of the answer. Their journey bridges the various paradoxes of twentieth-century culture, as they encounter a succession of celebrities and geniuses - including Madonna, Kraftwerk, Wittgenstein and the ghost of Elvis Presley - and explore the iconic and the obscure, the mechanical and the digital, the avant-garde and the very nature of pop itself.
