New book *Deindustrialisation and Popular Music. Punk and ‘Post-Punk’ in Manchester, Düsseldorf, Torino and Tampere*
by Giacomo Bottà
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers / Rowman & Littlefield International

The book is a comparative study of popular music cultures in the above-mentioned cities in the late 1970s early 1980s and of their relation to the industrial city as imaginary, as heritage and as everyday reality. Popular music genres, such as hardcore punk, house, industrial, post-punk and heavy metal, share a common origin in decaying industrial cities. All these genres have been canonized and understood as “scores” for grey, gloomy, decaying urban industrial environments or for their evocation, but is there an organic relationship between deindustrialisation and this kind of music production?
