What might have happened to popular music between the blows of 1976 punk rock and the professional begging of 1985 Live Aid? Who's guilty? Who's there? What happened? What comes next? Some people who earn their living in an unusual way talk about what they might be doing, and wonder where they are. Paul Morley raids his own interviews with rock entertainers to gather together a chatter that suggests a probable history of post-punk popular music. Is rock music at its end? At a beginning? Or where it's always been - stuck fast? You only have to ask. Illustrated with B&W photographs. 128pp. Size: 4to Medium (11½" x 9" approx.)
