Chamber Music : About the Wu-Tang (in 36 Pieces) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'One of the most rewarding pieces of hip-hop criticism ever written' Jeff Chang'Brilliant' Giles Peterson'Will Ashon's dazzling study gets to the heart of hip hop, pop culture and the history of contemporary America. Essential' Matt Thorne'Each of these chambers contains wonders of history, destiny and mythology' Margo JeffersonWill Ashon tells, in 36 interlinked 'chambers', the story of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and how it changed the world.

As unexpected and complex as the album itself, Chamber Music ranges from provocative essays to semi-comic skits, from deep scholarly analysis to satirical celebration, seeking to contextualise, reveal and honour this singularly composite work of art.

From the FBI's war on drugs to the porn theatres of 42nd street, from the history of jazz to the future of politics, Chamber Music is an explosive and revelatory new way of writing about music and culture.
