About this book

This new study of British popular music shows how it engages with class in mythical ways that allow audiences to perform class-based identities. Case studies on folk rock, punk and indie rock show how this performance works and explore the implications for listeners and audiences.

About the authors

NATHAN WISEMAN-TROWSE is Senior Lecturer in Popular Culture and Course Leader for the BA in Popular Music at the University of Northampton, UK, as well as being an Executive Board member for the International Association for the Study of Popular Music, UK and Ireland branch.

Reviews

'It is when Wiseman-Trowse applies the oft-discussed discourses of class and authenticity to performative theory that popular music studies is taken into rarely charted waters. Here he uses Judith Butler's analysis of sexuality, gender and desire as a model through which to argue that subjectivity becomes related to performance as well as the discourses that surround it... incisive and compelling' - Martin James, Times Higher Education
