Riassunto: A controversial and honest account of My Life On The Road With Rock Group, a potted history of pop from '79-'85, and a serious analysis of the whole mess. . . Dave Rimmer has one great weapon at his disposal. He was there.' David Quantick, NME 'As sharp a study of British pop as we'll get. . . Rimmer's point is that if the new pop stars' success makes it seem 'like punk never happened', they emerged, in fact, as a direct result of punk attitudes. . . Rimmer tells this story in his raciest Smash Hits manner, with wit, insider info and scandal.' Simon Frith, City Limits 'Rimmer is among the most entertaining writers ever to pen a rock book.' Dave Marsh, Rock and Roll Confidential
From Publishers Weekly:
Rimmer intends here to compare English New Pop bands of the '80s with their predecessors, the punk rockers. Although he documents the lessons New Pop musicians learned from the punk bands (more artistic control, better business acumen), he rarely quotes from the punk movement about the new bands. Likewise Rimmer is strangely silent about Culture Club, with whom he traveled during a tour of Japan. Apparently he conducted no extensive interview with Boy George and did not get cooperation from other members of the band. In the end his comments are limited to his own observations and a few other similarly limited ones from others. A typical statement comes from promoter Miles Copeland, who defines New Pop by saying, "We're not in the music business. We're in the commodity business."
