Rock And Popular Music In Ireland: Before And After U2

Rock And Popular Music In Ireland: Before And After U2

Noel McLaughlin, Martin McLoone

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

2012 1st edition hardback. Last copy

Through a detailed analysis of the Ireland's most prominent artists and bands - U2, Van Morrison, Sinead O'Connor, The Boomtown Rats, and Horslips, this book explores Irish rock music's relationship to the wider world of international popular music.

Along with key musical movements including the Beat Scene, the Folk Revival, Northern Irish Punk, and Dance Music in Ireland, this book brings to the study of popular music the concerns of Irish Studies about national and cultural identity and, at the same time, enriches these debates by applying a focus on popular music culture to debates traditionally concerned with literature and drama.

The book focuses on the significance of music and music in performance, and it analyzes songs and albums, as well as live concerts on television and video/DVD. It presents a wealth of primary research to establish a detailed critical context, such as the music press in Ireland, the UK, and US.
