Overview

Since leaving Eat My Dog, Mark McNulty hasn't looked back! For over twenty years Mark has been documenting the Liverpool music scene in the city and its proliferation worldwide. With 300 photographs from his portfolio Pop Cultured celebrates a city, its music and its culture through the lens of an acclaimed and highly influential Liverpool photographer. As a jobbing photographer McNulty began work covering events such as the Earthbeat festivals in Sefton Park, Liverpool, an annual live music event that would witness breakthrough performances from iconic artists such as The La's and The Stone Roses. While Britain enjoyed the 'Second Summer of Love' and the advent of acid house McNulty chronicled the full glory of the period in monochrome and technicolor capturing The Happy Mondays, The Farm, Echo & The Bunnymen, Cast and the legendary Liverpool dance mecca and rival to the Hacienda, Cream. As well as celebrating the current crop of Liverpool talent including The Zutons, Pop Levi, Candie Payne and Ladytron, Pop Cultured displays Mark's work with some of the most iconic figures in British popular music from The Who to Arctic Monkeys. Visually stunning and extremely witty Pop Cultured combine McNulty's images with his own laconic words along with contributions from some of his subjects to provide an enthralling rollercoaster account of some of the most influential artists and movements in the last twenty years of British popular culture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Music's epicentre of pop class captured."—Record Collector

"McNulty's first book is shot with fun and passion ... but also displays a Leibovitz-like ability to catch an artist's unguarded essence."—Mojo

"Mark McNulty has photographed everyone from Vivienne Westwood to The Zutons, Yoko Ono to Portishead. And now the 42-year-old from Walton has drawn together some of his favourite images to celebrate the city's rich musical heritage in his new book Pop Cultured."—Liverpool Echo
