Overview

A new edition of the long out-of-print cult classic "The Industrial Revolution" - a 1992 guide to the birth and brilliance of the Industrial Music scene, written by one of the acknowledged experts in the scene.

Featuring in-depth biographies and discographies of every Industrial band functioning at the time, together with historical retrospectives, features, exclusive interviews and more, "The Industrial Revolution" has long been regarded as the essential guide to a musical form that promised, at one point, to be cvome the dominant force of the decade.

From A Certain Ratio to Z'ev, via Ministry, David Bowie, Thrill Kill Kult, Current 93, Front 242, Numb, Cabaret Voltaire, Nine Inch Nails, DAF, Pigface, Eno, Throbbing Gristle, Foetus, Coil, Nurse With Wound, Einsturzende Neubauten, John Cale, Spahn Ranch, the Vampire Rodents and many more, "The Industrial Revolution" covered the entire spectrum of industrial rock bands, and remains a spellbinding introduction to... and a reminder of... the moment when experimental left field music was poised on the very edge of mainstream superstardom.

Complete and unabridged, "The Industrial Revolution" is available now for the first time in more than a decade.

Please note: this edition does not include any new or updated material. However, both the print and e-book editions do correct some minor formatting errors present in the earlier e-book.
