Rip It Up And Start Again (UK Edition)

In the aftermath of punk's narcissistic demise, a varied and adventurous musical movement rose from the ashes in the UK and America, that pushed the aesthetic and thematic boundries of musc into an imagined future.  Covering groups as diverse as Devo, Joy Division, Orange Juice, Joseoh K, The Fall, Wire, Gang of Four, the Slits, Human League, Scritti Polliti, Liquid Liquid, Throbbing Gristle, Adam and the Ant, PiL, etc. Simon Reynolds makes the argument that the post-punk movement, in terms both of creativity and influence, has eclipsed its more famous antecedent.  CAUTION!! ADDICTING!! You will visit the itunes store and Ameoba Records many times whole reading this book.

This is the greatly expanded UK edition which features literally hundreds more pages, as well as tons of photos.  This is the edition to have of an absolute classic book.
