Details

Is it plastic? Is it inauthentic? Bubblegum music's very name insults the aurally impaired. This book aims to reinvigorate the way our culture appraises a vilified genre and its Faustian pursuit of the perfect pop song. It's a sticky business trying to define Bubblebum, but we can diagnose for you the gum-tendencies of the Sex Pistols, Chic, ABBA, The Box Tops, Ramones, and Paul Revere and the Raiders. Interviewed within are the producers, artists and the impresarios of Bubblegum in its various media. Included are insights into the impulses-both naughty and Ivory-pure-of music created for the pre-pubescent. The contributors include a crop of current and golden age 'zinesters, pop culture mavens, musicians, and fans (including Pete Bagge and Dennis Eichhorn), harnessed by editors Kim (SCRAM Magazine) Cooper and David Smay.
