New Book on Postpunk by Simon Reynolds

Simon Reynolds, co-author of The Sex Revolts, has just published a new book, Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-1984. The New York Times reviewed it today. The book covers bands like the Talking Heads, the Fall, Devo (pictured), Gang of Four, Joy Division, Scritti Politti and the B-52's. You can listen to samples of some of these bands if you go here and scroll down to the review of the book.
