The Sex Revolts is the first book to look at rebellion and rock ?n? roll through the lens of gender. It argues that rock music is most thrilling when it is most misogynist and macho. Provocative and passionately argued, the book walks the tightrope between a rock fan?s excitement, and a critic?s awareness of the music?s darker undercurrents. It sheds new light on the angry young men (The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, and Nirvana) and the psychedelic mystics (Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett and Brian Eno) that make up the rock?n?roll pantheon. The Sex Revolts is rich cocktail of rock criticism, cultural studies and feminist theory.The Sex Revolts is the first book to look at rebellion and rock a#39;na#39; roll through the lens of gender.
