This book tells the intruiguing and culturally complex story of the art school influence on post-war British popular music.

"Following Romantic attitudes from Life Class to the Recording Studio, the authors focus on two key moments: the early 1960's when art students like John Lennon and Eric Clapton began to play their own versions of American rock and blues and infected youth music with Bohemian dreams, and the late 1970's when punk musicians emerged from design courses and fashion departments to discrupt what were, by then, art-rock routines."

"...and so high pop theorists rub shoulders here with low pop practitioners, experimental musicians debate avant-garde ideas with corporate packagers, and artistic integrity becomes a matter of making oneself up...."

206 pp; b&w illustrations; end notes; index.
