This volume compiles snapshots of English pop culture’s rebels and outsiders- from Evelyn Waugh to PJ Harvey. By focusing on cultural figures who served to define England, this book looks at those who have shaped Albion’s secret history- not just its official cultural history. By departing from the narrative that dutifully follows the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols and Oasis and by instead penetrating the surface of England’s pop history (including the venues it was shaped in) this piece throws new light on ideas of Englishness. Showing the moments at which outsiders used music, literature and film to take centre stage and alter our sense of a sometimes green but sometimes unpleasant land.
