Jason Hellar – Strange Stars

Only 1 left in stock


A Hugo Award-winning author and music journalist explores the weird and wild story of when rock ‘n’ roll met the sci-fi world of the 1970s
Beginning with David Bowie’s obsession with science fiction, Strange Stars traces the dual evolution of Sci Fi and popular music. Alongside Bowie’s extraterrestrial artistic vision, we learn about the surprising inspirations behind other intergalactic artists like Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, and Parliament Funkadelic. Heller discusses the seismic cultural effects of Sci-Fi influences such as the Moon Landing, Star Wars, and the rapid development of computer technology had on the era, and shows how it all came together to create sounds and styles from out of this world.
