About this title


The Sex Revolts is the first book to look at rebellion and rock n roll through the lens of gender. It finds a paradox at the heart of rock music - that it is often most thrilling when it is most misogynist and macho. Provocative and passionately argued, the book walks the tightrope between a rock fan s excitement, and a critic s awareness of the music s darker undercurrents. It sheds new light on the angry young men (The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, and Nirvana) and the psychedelic mystics (Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett and Brian Eno) that make up the rock n roll pantheon. It traces the secret history of female rebellion in rock, from Patti Smith and Kate Bush through the Slits and Siouxsie to contemporary artists like Hole and PJ Harvey. A rich cocktail of rock criticism, cultural studies and feminist theory, The Sex Revolts is set to become the key text in the women-in-rock debate.
