About the Author

Matthew Bannister is Senior Lecturer/Postgraduate Supervisor in Media Arts at Wintec (Waikato Institute of Technology), Hamilton, New Zealand.


'Solid, researched intellectual discourse on rock music, particularly punk and indie, is hard to come by, and Bannister treats his subject matter - which includes R.E.M., the Smiths, The Minutemen and Nirvana - with the same level of respect a classical music scholar would give Mozart or Bach. That's refreshing.' Thrive 'Matthew Bannister's new title adds a precious new body of study to the relatively thin gathering of books about the male and maleness in rock music, as he unpicks the part that masculinity and masculine values have played in shaping both the rock discourse and our understanding of it... rich and impressively researched survey... a highly satisfying overview...'
