From the acclaimed biographer of Keith Moon comes an incisive history of New York's seminal music scenes, encompassing the ways in which the city's indigenous art, literature, theatre and political movements converged to create such unique sounds, as well as the music's vast contributions to our culture. With great attention to the characters, from trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie to Tito Puente, Bob Dylan to the Ramones, "All Hopped Up and Ready to Go" takes us through bebop, the Latin music scene, the folk revival, glitter music, disco, punk and hip-hop, as they emerged from the neighbourhood streets of Harlem, the Village, Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.

Review:

Tony Fletcher has demonstrated extraordinary depth in his research and vibrancy in his writing. Not only was I fascinated by his stories of times and styles about which I knew little, but, in those areas in which I know a lot, he has connected all the dots for me...Oh, yeah, and it's a damn good read.' Mike Stoller, Leiber & Stoller I enjoyed this book almost as much as I originally enjoyed all the music it covered. Peter Buck R.E.M. This is the first time I had seen anyone attempt to chronicle the whole of New York's popular music, and Tony is remarkably successful in his endeavour. Chris Stein Blondie Fletcher's narrative hurtles along like a high-speed cab ride down broadway **** MOJO Magazine
