Overview

This extensively revised new edition of Understanding Popular Music Culture provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the production, distribution, consumption and meaning of popular music and examines the difficulties and debates which surround the analysis of popular culture and popular music.

Reflecting the continued expansion of popular music studies, the changing music industry and the impact of new technologies, Roy Shuker explores key subjects which shape our experience of music, including music production, musicians and stars, musical texts, musical media, audiences, fans and subcultures and music as political activism and ideology.

New case studies on the ipod, downloading, and copyright;

The impact of technologies, including on-line delivery and the debates over MP3 and Napster;

New chapters on music genres, cover songs and the album canon as well as music retail, radio and the charts;

Case studies and lyrics of artists such as Robert Johnson. The Who, Fatboy Slim and the Spice Girls;

A comprehensive discography, suggestions for further reading, listening and viewing and a directory of useful websites.
