Description Pop When the World Falls Apart de Eric Weisbard:

Hearing Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan once said, was "like busting out of jail." But what happens when popular music isn't as simple as rock-and-roll rebellion? How does pop respond to such events as a decade-long war in Iraq and Hurricane Katrina? In Pop When the World Falls Apart, a diverse array of music writers, scholars, and enthusiasts reflect on popular music's role-as commentary, as refuge, and as rallying cry-in times of military conflict, social upheaval, and cultural crisis. Drawn from presentations at the annual Experience Music Project Pop Conference-hailed by Robert Christgau as "the best thing that's ever happened to serious consideration of pop music"-the essays in this book include inquiries into the sonic dimension of war in Iraq- the cultural life of jazz in post-Katrina New Orleans- Isaac Hayes's reappropriation of a country song, "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," as a symbol of black nationalism- and punk rock pranks played on record execs looking for the next big thing in central Virginia. Offering a diverse range of voices, perspectives, and approaches, this volume mirrors the eclecticism of pop itself. Contributors: Larry Blumenfeld , Austin Bunn, Nate Chinen, J.
