I long ago read a book in which civilization was being destroyed by sort of progressing sound or wave. But there was a band that produced music that could somehow cancel the effect. But the wave gets stronger and stronger, so in the end the band was playing a concert, the concert-goers were the last survivors, and when the band stopped, that was going to be the end. I would love to find it again. Thanks.

That sounds like a good story, I don't remember it, but the theme sounds like something that Spinrad, Silverberg or Anthony might have done at that time. Spinrad has a fun one about a rock band trying to get the ok to use a nuclear device for their stage show: "The Big Flash".

I researched Spinrad and found his connection to Michael Moorcock, who I thought may have been the author I was looking for. Further research revealed Moorcock's connection to the band Hawkwind, and then I found that Hawkwind is the fictional band in the book "Time of The Hawklords", co-authored with Michael Butterworth. THAT is the book I was looking for! Thanks so much!

Glad I could help (sort of help at any rate). If anyone is a fan of prog rock or SFnal rock, this Hawkwind/Moorcock collaboration is a must own: Warrior on the Edge
