Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music

Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music

Indispensable guide to the history of electronic music. Every possible gendre seems to be covered in some (amusing) detail. That is, apart from the Wigan Happy Hoover sound of 1991. But it required a certain quality of meat pie to appreciate it correctly. Recommended for musical history addicts.
