Joseph Tate’s RH Book To Be Released

by Dylan on March 23, 2004

Joseph Tate (whom most of you know as webmaster of Pulk-Pull), has announced that his long-in-the-works book, The Music and Art of Radiohead, will see official release from Ashgate Publishing in early 2005.
Here is the official description of the book, as seen on Pulk-Pull-
The Music and Art of Radiohead includes compelling close readings of the English band’s music, lyrics, album cover art and music videos as well as critical commentary on interviews, reviews and the documentary film Meeting People is Easy. Established and emerging academic scholars engage Radiohead’s music and art via concerns of broader implication to contemporary cultural studies. Topics range from the band’s various musical and multivalent social contexts to their contested situation within a global market economy; from asking the question, ‘how free is art?’ to considering the band’s musical influences and radical sonic explorations. Together, the essays form a comprehensive discussion of Radiohead’s entire oeuvre, from Pablo Honey to Hail to the Thief, with a special focus on the critically acclaimed best-selling albums Kid A and Amnesiac.
You can preorder the hardback or paperback versions directly from Ashgate.
