    interesting. in that breezy hebdige kinda way. you know, the sort of way that makes you think "i should have been in london in the 1970s" because that was what brought these various elements into simultaneity so that the archaeology of dub made sense to pursue. chicago 2007 environments that might send you into archaeological mode are not as cool. o no they aren't. certainly a smarter book than many of its parallels--like "last night a dj saved my life"--which in the end i liked but only after s interesting. in that breezy hebdige kinda way. you know, the sort of way that makes you think "i should have been in london in the 1970s" because that was what brought these various elements into simultaneity so that the archaeology of dub made sense to pursue. chicago 2007 environments that might send you into archaeological mode are not as cool. o no they aren't. certainly a smarter book than many of its parallels--like "last night a dj saved my life"--which in the end i liked but only after slogging through a seemingly interminable defensive introduction that explains why we who wrote this are not interested in Theory because we are Way More Authentic than are the Pointy Heads who are.

    a fairly straight-forward history that sometimes comes perilously close to the dreaded MUSIC JOURNALISM - the culture and identity themes are not as well developed as in hebdige's subculture: the meaning of style. saves the day however, with engaging and more detailed discussion of british sound system culture of late 70s/early 80s. i still like hebdige! a fairly straight-forward history that sometimes comes perilously close to the dreaded MUSIC JOURNALISM - the culture and identity themes are not as well developed as in hebdige's subculture: the meaning of style. saves the day however, with engaging and more detailed discussion of british sound system culture of late 70s/early 80s. i still like hebdige!

    this was a great little book! it's short but full of great information and a fantastic list of songs to check out as you read. highly recommend if you have been interested in reggea but bored by the over-played-ness of bob marley and with no other idea where to start, this book is for you. it's like a companion piece for all the great trojan box sets. good stuff. this was a great little book! it's short but full of great information and a fantastic list of songs to check out as you read. highly recommend if you have been interested in reggea but bored by the over-played-ness of bob marley and with no other idea where to start, this book is for you. it's like a companion piece for all the great trojan box sets. good stuff.

    another one of my favorite books by hebdige. any fan of punk or ska (especially 2nd wave & onward) should read this book to get some critical & social context of the class & culture breakdown of those movements in the UK, & their Jamaican predecessors.
