Product Description

Details

Rip it up charges through the astonishing story of Scottish pop and rock music from the 1950s to the present day, from Lonnie Donegan to Calvin Harris.

Unbelievably for a country its size, Scotland has been at the very cutting edge of the twentieth century's most important, accessible and radical art form.

 The book pinpoints countless commercial success stories and artistic underdogs whose work has gone on to influence film, fashion, design, visual-art and politics.

 Through the music, record labels, release formats, concert venues, shops, memorabilia, festivals, language and identity - Rip It Up explores the history (so far) of Scotland's most successful pop and rock musicians, and the impression they have made on a global stage.

The book accompanies a major exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland 22 June to 25 November 2018.

Press Reviews

' ... no mere exercise in nostalgia ... is more thorough and exhaustive than we have any right to expect from a book released to accompany an exhibition, and it more than stands on its own right and merits. Galloway's passion is infectious ... a fascinating story well written ... every home should have one.'
