T he early to mid s were a strange, uneasy time for rock music. The countercultural dreams of the late 60s had faded, and punk's nihilistic furies had yet to materialise. In their very different ways, glam rock and "prog" both cocked a snook at the idea of authenticity and put a new emphasis on artifice and conceit. Moreover, rock had now acquired enough mythic baggage to partially cut itself off from anything sociopolitical and begin celebrating itself — a development that would be decisively marked in by a Rolling Stones single which camply rejoiced in the fact that the group's music had turned out to stand for nothing much at all. Much like our own time, this was an era of rock for rock's sake — and yet, in a few inspired examples, a degree of self-mythologisation allowed more talented musicians to shine a penetrating light on the human condition: David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars; The Who's Quadrophenia ; the best songs on Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here , effectively a postcard from the absolute height of commercial success; and, from the same year, Elton John's contrasting Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy , a borderline conceptual work focused on his own early career struggles. Arguably the most dependable practitioners of rock-about-rock, however, were a group too often overlooked in the received version of pop history: Mott the Hoople, best known for their hit version of Bowie's "All the Young Dudes", who formed in and split up in Their original line-up was glued together by the producer and impresario Guy Stevens later the producer of the Clash's London Calling , who took the group's name from an obscure 60s novel by the American author Willard Manus.
Look Inside. After years of working day jobs and making music in his basement, Jacob Slichter wondered if his dreams of rock stardom were a vain illusion. Then he was recruited by two of his successful musician friends to form a band that became Semisonic. But along the road to fame and success came bewilderment and personal chaos: How will we ever get a record deal? Which record company is the best? The worst? Do I really have to wear these ridiculous boots?
The book was published 18 months later in June , just as Hunter was leaving the band to embark on a solo career. It chronicles the endless traveling, hotels, sound checks, performances and, notably, strips away the glittering facade of the rock star that the music industry PR machine would have music fans believe. Hunter delivers a distinctly British perspective as he encounters the diverse American cultural landscape. As if aware of his own future career arc, Hunter warns, "It may look flashy, but it's over and you are finished before you know it - if you aren't already broken by one thing it will be another The rock business is a dirty business full stop.
