About this book
The first book to make sense of 21st century pop, exploring rock's nostalgia industry of revivals, reissues, reunions and remakes and arguing that there has never before been a culture so obsessed with its own immediate past.
Intends to make sense of 21st Century pop. Pulling together parallel threads from music, fashion, art, and new media, this title confronts a central paradox of our era: from iPods to YouTube, we're empowered by mind-blowing technology, but too often it's used as a time machine or as a tool to shuffle and rearrange music from yesterday.
