Starting in the late 70s and early 80s, there was a time when the rebellious, political sentiments of the two genres actually lead to a surprising amount of collaboration and acknowledgment between artists. Today if you were to go to a local show anywhere or at least here in the northwest you probably would not find Hip Hop artists and punks playing the same venue. What caused this rift?
Rock'n'roll pioneers Little Richard and Bill Haley in There wasn't a book that followed pop music's development from the start of the s, when the introduction of vinyl records, the "hit parade", the weekly music press and the Dansette — the first portable musical hardware — created the modern pop era.
There were plenty of books out there on genres, micro-genres, even specific songs, and some of these are among my favourite books. Without the 10 I've listed here, all big inspirations, Yeah Yeah Yeah would have been much harder and much less fun to pull together.
Each writer describes their first pop love, which can either be forbiddingly cool Kelly grew up in Dalston, split equally in the 60s between Irish and Jamaican communities, and so came to love reggae at an early age or quite the opposite Garratt's essay on Rollermania.
Best of the lot is Mick Houghton's piece about falling in and out of love with Billy Furybetraying him for the Beatles inand still feeling a sense of shame 30 years later. How The Beatles Destroyed Rock'n'Roll by Elijah Wald This covers the pre-rock era, and the rise of American popular music through parlour songs, spirituals and ragtime.
Wald has more time for musicians and ordinary listeners than swing buffs and revisionists.
Best of all, he takes on the conventional history of jazz he has a rare respect for the white "king of jazz" Paul Whitemanlargely ignored by modern critics as well as rock, which we don't reach until the book is more than halfway through.
Revolt Into Style by George Melly The first book specifically about British pop culture, published inis a fabulous period piece. Melly was on the outside, as a jazzman, but observed the rise of modern pop with interest; his is a pretty unique perspective.
He describes the "castrating process" of Tommy Steele's career move from rock'n'roller to all-round entertainer, and Swinging London as "of use only to the lazy and least talented". He's no snob, though: A History of the Analogue Record by Richard Osborne In theory, Vinyl is an academic book, but I found it a very easy read — there was plenty to discover.
Osborne talks about how 78s were made from the secretions of beetles found on the Malay peninsula and in French Indochina, how record labels were first created yes, the paper labels themselvesand the reasons why Johnny Marr might regard 7-inch singles as "mystical objects" while a Pink Floyd fan urged NME readers in to lobby their MPs so "seven inch records must be made illegal".
Anyone who has an obsession with records as physical artefacts will love this. Pop From The Beginning by Nik Cohn Written in three weeks flat at the start ofthis was a chronological dash through pop's first 15 years, from Bill Haley to Crosby Stills and Nash who Cohn thought were weedy and unlistenable.
He is never scared to have an opinion that goes against the grain and even if I don't agree with him most of the time PJ Proby gets a whole chapter! The Heart of Rock and Soul by Dave Marsh Marsh celebrates the 7-inch single, listing what he considers to be the 1, greatest 45s in order I won't spoil it by telling you what's number one.
I love the intriguing, unlikely connections he makes to show how the story of pop can be seen as a whole: Nolan Chance's eerie doo-wop hit The Wind is described as "a prophecy of Michael Jackson 20 years before he came along … if it had arrived in a meteorite shower it couldn't have been any spookier".
The only thing wrong with the book is its clunky title, but then it was written in the mids when pop was a dirty word. Perfecting Sound Forever by Greg Milner The story of recorded music, and how we've listened to it since the days of Edison.
It turns into something of a polemic once it reaches the digital era, but you can understand Milner's frown.
The romance of radio waves, magnetic recording tape and gramophones is strong, and the digital age seems rather puny and unexciting when set alongside these progressive, physical, scientific advances.The bones of the songs are, for the most part, simple, catchy pop songs.

Some of the music at and around CBGB stretched arms out to the past: the music of both Blondie and the Ramones referenced 60s rock, Spector and Leiber and Stoller girl-group chords and chipper melodies and sometimes even the baion beat, just played faster and louder, and without the strings.
In doing so, they sailed right over the 70s arena pomp and cornball theatrics, as if it had never happened.
