Understanding popular music culture

As I read this 2008 textbook, likely I’ll have a few thoughts – watch this space.

The author has provided “an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the production, distribution, consumption and meaning of popular music”. Roy Shuker explored “key subjects which shape our experience of music, including music production, musicians and stars, musical texts, musical media, audiences, fans and subcultures and music as political activism and ideology”. Sounds just my thing!
