"A veritable cornucopia of self-made worth. . . . "DIY: The Rise of Lo-Fi Culture" is a triumph from beginning to end. . . . Highly recommended."--Trakmarx.com

"A . . . comprehensive guide to the evolution of DIY culture as we know it today."--Bookslut.com

This exploration of lo-fi culture traces the origin of the DIY ethic to the skiffle movement of the 1950s, mail art, Black Mountain poetry, and avant-garde art in the 1950s. It follows the punk scene of the 1970s and 1980s to the current music scene. It charts the development of music outside of the publicity machine and examines the politics behind the production of "homemade" recordings and publications.
