About this book
Trade paperback. A fascinating subject at the heart of contemporary music; what it is to be 'real' or 'fake'.
The quest for authenticity, for the 'real', is a dominant factor in musical taste - be it the folklorist's search for forgotten bluesmen, the rock critic's elevation of raw power over sophistication, or importance of bullet wounds to the careers of hip-hop artists. This book looks at the myth of what it means to be 'real' and 'fake' in pop music.
