Sub-titled 'A Musical Journey Through Modern Black Britain', this beautifully written book acts as a revisionist history of British music, one which will make you think again about our important historical moments in music.
Through 28 songs Jeffery Boake re-evaluates some of the key shifts in modern British music. It's a playlist that features a roll call of the great and the good and includes the likes of Eddy Grant, The Specials, Monie Love, Neneh Cherry, Stormzy, and Dave. It's thought-provoking stuff - from Derek B carving a new way for British hip hop to Smiley Culture pre-empting grime in his use of Cockney and Patois - it makes you think again.
