Sonic Cool: The Life & Death of Rock 'n' Roll
Hal Leonard Corporation, 2002 - 595 ページ
(Book). In the tradition of Nick Tosches, Tom Wolfe and Lester Bangs comes an epic and riveting history of rock and roll that reads like a novel. Sonic Cool presents the saga of rock and roll as the closest thing we have to genuine "myth" in the modern world, and it is the first book about rock to be written in the spirit of rock. Immense, fierce, opinionated and hilarious, Joe Harrington masterfully presents rock as a movement of near-religious proportions, against a backdrop of social factors and important events such as the invention of the guitar, the jukebox, LSD, the 12-inch phonograph record, the '70s recession, the Reagan Revolution, and the Internet. This is the history of rock as it's never been told, as the legend of a massive cultural movement, one that had meaning, but ultimately failed because it sold its soul. Radically egalitarian in its assessments towering figures such as Lennon, Dylan and Cobain stand along side lesser-known but equally influential artists like the MC5, the Misfits and Joy Division Sonic Cool is gripping reading for anyone who ever believed in the music. Includes a 16-page black-and-white photo insert. Joe S. Harrington began writing at the age of 10, an act that provoked a rejection slip from Mad magazine. He has written about music for the Boston Globe , Boston Phoenix , New York Press , Seattle Stranger , Lowell Sun , Wired , Reflex , Raygun , High Times , Seconds , Rollerderby and numerous fanzines. He is currently employed as an on-line jazz critic at Amazon, and lives in Portland, Maine. Softcover.

Review: Sonic Cool: The Life & Death of Rock'n'rollユーザー レビュー - Simon Harvey - Goodreads
Awful book. Badly written, badly reasoned. The photo captions, which witlessly attempt to rip off Carducci's captions in Rock and the Pop Narcotic, are the cringe-inducing icing on the bad book cake. レビュー全文を読む
Review: Sonic Cool: The Life & Death of Rock'n'rollユーザー レビュー - Shawn Buckle - Goodreads
Hands down, the best music history book I've ever read. It's chronological retelling of rock n roll's origin credits the blues and honky tonk country. Harrington is able to talk history like a fervent fan who genuinely digs music. レビュー全文を読む
