The publication of our much-anticipated Prog Rock book is fast approaching. We expect to see the book in stores during the first week of June.
Martin Halliwell and Paul Hegarty have put together a really brilliant book detailing the history of Prog Rock, or at least that's what Simon says.
"Examining every aspect of progressive rock - words and music, theatre and politics - Hegarty and Halliwell deftly unpick the tangled threads of tradition and radicalism that make up the genre's tapestry. In addition to shedding vital new light on an often maligned and misunderstood phase in rock's history, this probing and incisive study tracks prog's continued and unexpected reverberations through popular music long after punk had supposedly vanquished and banished it." Simon Reynolds, author of Retromania: Pop Culture's Addiction to Its Own Past and Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-84
