Alan LightDeveloped from a recurring column in Vanity Fair, this slim book is a note-perfect lexicon of the names, recordings, places and ephemera treasured by those who lord ''their encyclopedic musical knowledge over others.'' (Think John Cusack in ''High Fidelity.'') From provocateur producer Steve Albini to Nudie's Rodeo Tailors (whose bespoke Western wear outfitted Hank Williams, Gram Parsons and Beck), with stops at such unavoidable terminology as ''post-rock'' and ''seminal'' and mandatory references to Brian Wilson every few pages, Kamp and Daly's book equips readers with a sufficient arsenal to make it through the latest issue of Mojo magazine or a thick set of liner notes on a Rhino Records reissue.
