Shock and Awe Book
Shock and Awe Glam Rock and Its Legacy by Simon Reynolds
A Guardian, Sunday Times, Mojo, Daily Telegraph and Observer Book of the Year Longlisted for the Penderyn Music Book Prize 2017. As the sixties dream faded, a new flamboyant movement electrified the world: GLAM! In Shock and Awe, Simon Reynolds explores this most decadent of genres on both sides of the Atlantic. Bolan, Bowie, Suzi Quatro, Alice Cooper, New York Dolls, Slade, Roxy Music, Iggy, Lou Reed, Be Bop Deluxe, David Essex -- all are represented here. Reynolds charts the retro future sounds, outrageous styles and gender-fluid sexual politics that came to define the first half of the seventies and brings it up to date with a final chapter on glam in hip hop, Lady Gaga, and the aftershocks of David Bowie's death.
