Description of this Book

Following on from the success of Nevermind the Bollocks (Virago, 1995), Amy Raphael interviews prominent female musicians to find out what it means to be a woman artist and a female in the music business. In the last book Amy, a music journalist, interviewed people such as Deborah Harry, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon and Bjork. She plans to revisit some of those in this book as well as approaching contemporary artists from Kate Tempest to Solange.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Stretches your brain and swells your heart with every page . . . if anyone wishes to understand what Courtney Love has had to go through, this is definitely recommended. The women in this book don't just talk about it, they do it. The voices are as diverse and difficult, as weird as wonderful as they are on stage. Listen carefully however and you will hear that this is not simply about rock 'n' roll, it is about a culture adjusting itself to female power. Listen carefully and it will take you higher.
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
