Perth is labeled, either whimsically or derisively, the most isolated capital city in the world. What happens to popular music in such a city during a time of globalization and sanitized sameness? The authors of this collection provide a snapshot of this cultural moment. Answers to the question fly off the pages of this book. Perth, a small and dynamic city, generates incredibly vibrant and diverse music - from the energy of hip hop and b-boys, electronica and post-rock, to committed performers and riveted fans in gritty pubs and darkened clubs. Disentangled from vested interests and corporate sponsorship, this is an independent book capturing the rhythms of an independent city. pp. 244 illusts #0517 (Prev owner's initials on fep)
