    The book is an enthusiastic mix of analysis, manifesto and personal anecdote While it might have it s flaws from an academic point of view, it is written from the heart and deserves to be read for its honest and important message summed up 1 We are living under what is effectively a dictatorship of the shareholders p 193 2 Rulers have always used the arts in order to pacify the masses and reinforce their position 3 Today this meddling in the arts are coming from big money, and not necessarily from the political leaders 4 It is important to make music by us for us and not just buy into music by them for us p 97 The concluding Rebel Music Manifesto contains points relevant for anyone interested in music.

    Sound System by Dave Randall is a book about the struggles of society through the ages, and the part music has played along the way I was initially sceptical about how interesting this book would be, but by the end of page one was proven completely wrong Their are fascinating insights into, not just the history of music instruments, but also the legacy they have left.We visit a number of points in history, and even places on our journey around the globe, looking at conflict, revolution and a communal sense of isolation Which have driven, and been driven by the development of music from both ends of the political spectrum.Well worth a read Thank you to the author and publisher for this Goodreads Giveaway.

    It s very interesting to get a musician s view on the political power of music and the reflections from within the industry This is a great primer for the ideas and movements of music within history and a look at some cases where it really has played its part in commenting on our world and in some cases helping to change it There are many interesting stories some that I needed to share immediately out loud With such a vast topic it can of course only scratch the surface, but it does so with wit and passion, and a call to action in the rebel music manifesto too.

    If consider yourself liberal and a music fan, you ll love it Doesn t pull any punches toward right leaning people Made really great historical references and ideas that will definitely stick with me for a long time.

    A well intentioned book about the possibility of music to be employed to service the fight for democracy A few references to Adorno, Trotsky, Ernst Fisher etc
