In "Subculture to Clubcultures" Steve Redhead responds to the separation of 'youth' and 'pop' in the 1980s and the fragmentation of the audience for popular music in the 1990s, arguing for a redefinition of the conceptual apparatus needed to explain the most recent developments in popular music culture - from the rise of 'Clubcultures' to the future of the popular music scene. The coverage in this book includes: the dance pop culture of the 1980s and 1990s; global youth culture as it was dynamized in this period by Garage, House, Electro, Techno and other contemporary dance music forms; and, the consequences of this for the continued importance of various forms of rock and pop music and a range of theoretical approaches to the economic and cultural condition of the postmodern.
