Winner of the 2011 IASPM prize for best English language monograph: 'Barbara Lebrun [...] incorporates both industry analysis and audience perspectives and does an excellent job in drawing links between the creation and distribution of 'alternative' music, its reception by audiences, and wider societal concerns and divisions.' 'Dr Lebrun... has succeeded in creating something that is both profound and thoroughly entertaining ... Altogether, this lucid and enlightening book is a joy to read. ...I would recommend it to anyone wanting to understand the evolution of modern protest or popular music in France, and those trying to fathom the singularity of French culture and society.' Songlines, with four-star rating 'Barbara Lebrun's informative and thorough study covers an area of recent French popular music little known on this side of the Channel. ... Barbara Lebrun's analysis of this recent cultural output looks at the institutional background of the French music industry and the ideological attitudes that motivated the practitioners of rock alternatif in their rejection of commercial structures.' French Studies 'In addition to presenting a well-written and well-structured argument, the strength of the book is its provision of diverse range of musical examples, and the insightful situating of these as cultural history in a material context. The result is a fascinating mosaic, which both educates the reader and encourages the further exploration of French music and its performers.' New Zealand Journal of French Studies
