What others say

“Jonathan Campbell offers an enthusiastically written history of Chinese rock music... He succeeds in grasping the particular feeling – and meaning – of “yaogun”, which is bound to the Chinese context and “officially” began twenty five years ago. This book is highly recommendable to everybody interested in rock music, China or – even better – both.” - Andreas Steen, author, “Der Lange Marsch des Rock’n’Roll” and numerous articles on yaogun, Aarhus University, DK
