Description - Hang the DJ by Angus Cargill

"Entertaining and addictive". (Metro). Hang the DJ is the must-read book of music lists, for all true music fans. In the hearts of all music lovers there are lists - from the best break-up songs, to the best drinking songs; the perfect mix-tape to the dream set-list; Dylan's dirtiest songs, to Tom Waits' saddest. Hang the DJ compiles the sort of thing you might once have scribbled in the back of your school book: musical loves and hates, dreams and nightmares. With contributions from novelists (Ali Smith, David Peace, Jonathan Lethem, Michel Faber), musicians (Kathryn Williams, Willy Vlautin, Jeb Loy Nichols, Tom McRae) and music writers (Nick Kent, Laura Barton, Simon Reynolds, Jon Savage) this is a collection that will inspire and provoke and send you back to your music collection, to old favourites and guilty pleasures alike.

Buy Hang the DJ by Angus Cargill from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
