Rip It Up and Start Again by Simon Reynolds (The Spotify Complete Booktrack)

Wikipedia says that "Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978–1984 is a book by Simon Reynolds on the music genre post-punk". It was released in February 2006, published by Faber & Faber and described by The Observer as "a compelling reminder of a time when clever, mischievous, creative people formed bands" and by The New York Times as "exhaustive and exhausting in equal measure".

On it is presented as "the first book to take a big-picture view of the entire post punk period", recreating "a time of tremendous urgency and idealism in pop music. Full of anecdote and insight, and featuring the likes of Joy Division, The Fall, Pere Ubu, PiL and Talking Heads, Rip It Up And Start Again stands as one of the most inspired and inspiring books on popular music ever written".

On Good Reads, 4,009 ratings and 219 reviews bring it up to a solid four star rating.

Personally, Rip It Up has been one of my favourite reads of 2014. It took me almost one year (Italian edition of the book is 700 pages long) and it has been enriched by a deep and passionate music listening. I discovered many stories, artists, albums and songs I didn't know.

While reading it, I also built a playlist with all the songs mentioned in the book that I found on Spotify. The result is this majestic & bizarre 785-song mammoth. Being rather philological, it can also look somehow confusing: it collects all the songs Simon Reynolds wrote about, including those not strictly related to post-punk, like Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run, Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas or Frank Zappa's Tengo na minchia tanta (do you know what does it mean in italian/sicilian? :-)).

I don't think this playlist should be considered as a "post-punk greatest hits". Actually it's a detailed soundtrack of the book, capturing all the atmospheres, preferences & aversions of the author. I love it, sometimes I still shuffle it and I hope you may find it useful.
