Access All Areas: How Soon Is Now author Richard King

From Access All Areas, 2:00 pm on 16 February 2013

United Kingdom author Richard King's book How Soon Is Now - The Madmen and Mavericks Who Made Independent Music 1975-2005 tells the story of the emergence of the UK's independent music scene from the perspective of the record labels and their owners. Labels like Factory, Rough Trade, Mute, 4AD, Beggars Banquet, Creation, XL and Domino provided a soundtrack to an era of music that epitomized the heroism and hedonism of a bunch of 'mavericks' who had the time, space and means to improvise.
