All Hopped Up and Ready to Go: by Tony Fletcher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From the acclaimed biographer of Keith Moon comes an incisive history of New York's seminal music scenes, encompassing the ways in which the city's indigenous art, literature, theatre and political movements converged to create such unique sounds, as well as the music's vast contributions to our culture. With great attention to the characters, from trumpet player Dizzy Gillespie to Tito Puente, Bob Dylan to the Ramones, "All Hopped Up and Ready to Go" takes us through bebop, the Latin music scene, the folk revival, glitter music, disco, punk and hip-hop, as they emerged from the neighbourhood streets of Harlem, the Village, Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens.
