Item Description...
From 1988 through 1993, guitarist/vocalist Steven Taylor toured the U.S. and Europe with the alternative rock group False Prophets, keeping a detailed journal with the intent of documenting the role of musicians in the international anarchist youth movement. His fieldnotes form the core of the book, accounting with honesty and aplomb the sometimes hilarious, sometimes harrowing, always engaging highs and lows of life on the road.

False Prophet situates punk, and the diary itself, in relation to contemporary critiques of identity and ethnographic representation, and links punk's emergence to the oral poetry renaissance of the 1950s, free jazz, and the do-it-yourself trend set by underground filmmakers in the 1960s. This innovative ethnography provides a theoretically informed account of a little understood genre of popular music, and a rare, intimate view into the everyday life of a working band. The audio CD contains some of False Prophets' most popular cuts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
False Prophet Rings True  Mar 4, 2004
Steven Taylor's "False Prophet: Fieldnotes from the Punk Underground" succeeds on multi-levels. As anthropology, it is a comprehensive cultural study, as musical history it is a much needed document and as personal memoir it is wholly compelling. Taylor is a singular artist. While most rockers can't write about music and most rock critics can't tune a guitar, Taylor has the intellect, theoretical chops and the musical cache to cover all the bases. The story alone is riveting: accomplished musician signs on with band during Lower East Side punk explosion; band runs up against American corporate music biz and tours Europe while that part of the globe is undergoing intense upheaval. I can't recommend this book enough and it should prove riveting to not only a national, but an international audience.
