    WHAT MAKES A CULT MUSICIAN?

    Whether pioneering in their craft, fiercely and undeniably unique or critically divisive, cult musicians come in all shapes and guises. Some gain instant fame, others instant notoriety, and more still remain anonymous until a chance change in fashion sees their work propelled into the limelight.

    Cult Musicians introduces 50 musicians deserving of a cult status. The book charts a plethora of genres and boundary-breakers - from afrobeat and art pop to glam rock and proto punk; Bjork and PJ Harvey to Aphex Twin and Wiley. Discover little knowns with small, devout followings and superstars gracing the covers of magazines - each musician is special in their individuality and their ability to inspire, antagonise and delight.

    Cult Musicians is an essential addition to any music lover's library, as well as an entertaining introduction to our weird and wonderful world of music.
