Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
The Licht take is this: as a fan and an actual guitarist of repute, he's got a few observations and interpretations of the trends we've all been subjected to here in the US 80s/90s. Tracing the whole thing back to the sixties (what did you expect, going all the way back to the blues?), Alan takes on the NYC scene, the avant-garde, chart-busting synth-pop, the chilly days of the cold war, the even chillier days of post rock and more, breaking it all down into easy to read chunks. You owe it to the indie-rock fan in yourself to get An Emotional Memoir of Martha Quinn.
