i'm pleased to announce the imminent return of Blissed Out: The Raptures of Rock as one of the batch of reissued rock books that launches Backpages Classics, Rock's Backpages's new imprint for e-book reissues

publishing date: some time this summer

the new edition comes with 5 bonus essays that track the development of music and artists covered in the book subsequent to the original edition's publication in 1990. there is also a long afterword that contextualises the book in terms of the UK weekly music press as as a historically brief and highly improbably "space of possibility"
