[ED: Buch], [PU: University of Chicago Press], Neuware - 'There was something rigorous and instructive in getting stoned and listening to music as if it really 'mattered,'' writes Nick Bromell in the first book to take seriously the 'drugs and rock 'n' roll' side of the 1960s-a side too often eclipsed by oversimplifications of that decade's hedonism or political idealism.

For the most enduring legacy of the '60s-and the reason we both celebrate and revile them today-may be that they inaugurated a profound instability, a sense that foundations are fictions and culture itself 'just a lie.' Indeed, psychedelics helped confirm the way adolescents 'already' saw the world, Bromell argues, and that is why they were intrigued by the strange sounds of Revolver long before most of them had even heard of pot or acid. Bromell also suggests that '60s rock drew heavily on the blues not just because white kids admired African American styles ofresistance, but because the blues gave musical expression to the double consciousness most of them felt as both insiders and outsiders in their own culture.
