On the day of Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee, worlds collide, and so do bodies. A pearl-wearing girl and a punk boy—can it ever work? Everybody in Camberwick Square is thrilled to be celebrating the Queen's Silver Jubilee—everyone, that is, except the punk-rock squatters at number forty-one. When auction-house assistant Emily tries to interest art student Ciaran in joining in the jamboree, he ends up much more personally involved than he ever envisaged. They aren't exactly the best-matched couple in the world, but somehow their breathless passion takes them through street parties and fetishwear shops, towards their final destination of a rather special boat trip on the Thames. But will passion be enough to keep this pearl-wearing princess and Irish punk boy together against the odds? Or will convention prevail and hold them apart?
The last track of this version of the group, 'Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Part III', continues the reflection on progressive rock and ... 5 John Savage, England's Dreaming: Sex Pistols and Punk Rock (London: Faber and Faber, 1991), 81.

The original edition of Beyond and Before extends an understanding of progressive rock by providing a fuller definition of what progressive rock is, was and can be. Called by Record Collector the most accomplished critical overview yet of progressive rock and one of their 2011 books of the year, Beyond and Before moves away from the limited consensus that prog rock is exclusively English in origin and that it was destroyed by the advent of punk in 1976. Instead, by tracing its multiple origins and complex transitions, it argues for the integration of jazz and folk into progressive rock and the extension of prog in Kate Bush, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree and many more. This 10-year anniversary revised edition continues to further unpack definitions of progressive rock and includes a brand new chapter focusing on post-conceptual trends in the 2010s through to the contemporary moment. The new edition discusses the complex creativity of progressive metal and folk in greater depth, as well as new fusions of genre that move across global cultures and that rework the extended form and mission of progressive rock, including in recent pop concept albums. All chapters are revised to keep the process of rethinking progressive rock alive and vibrant as a hybrid, open form.

In the middle of the first decade of the twenty-first century,African Americans made up approximately twelve percent ofthe United States population but close to forty percent of the United States prison population. Now, in the latter half of the decade, the nation is in the midst of the largest multi-year discharge of prisoners in its history. In Releasing Prisoners, Redeeming Communities, Anthony C. Thompson discusses what is likely to happen to these ex-offenders and why. For Thompson, any discussion of ex-offender reentry is, de facto, a question of race. After laying out the statistics, he identifies the ways in which media and politics have contributed to the problem, especially through stereotyping and racial bias. Well aware of the potential consequences if this country fails to act, Thompson offers concrete, realizable ideas of how our policies could, and should, change.

The historical significance of music-makers, music scenes, and music genres has long been mediated through academic and popular press publications such as magazines, films, and television documentaries. Media Narratives in Popular Music examines these various publications and questions how and why they are constructed. It considers the typically linear narratives that are based on simplifications, exaggerations, and omissions and the histories they construct - an approach that leads to totalizing official histories that reduce otherwise messy narratives to one-dimensional interpretations of a heroic and celebratory nature. This book questions the basis on which these mediated histories are constructed, highlights other, hidden, histories that have otherwise been neglected, and explores a range of topics including consumerism, the production pressure behind documentaries, punk fanzines, Rolling Stones covers, and more.
