QUIT YOUR BAND! MUSICAL NOTES FROM THE JAPANESE UNDERGROUND (BOOK)

QUIT YOUR BAND! MUSICAL NOTES FROM THE JAPANESE UNDERGROUND (BOOK)


Call And Response founder Ian (F) Martin's book seeks to provide framework within which to understand Japanese music by putting it in the context of pop and rock music history as well as the day-to-day economic and social pressures of the music scene. Drawing on his own experiences promoting shows and releasing music in the Tokyo underground scene, as well as a series of interviews with musicians, producers and other promoters, Quit Your Band! serves both as an introduction to the Japanese music scene as well as to draw the often confusing and diverse threads of the country's fragmented music culture together.
