We will have Rhian E. Jones and Eli Davies the editors of the new book ‘Under My Thumb: Songs that Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them’ (published by Repeater) coming into the shop to discuss and read from their book…
The book brings together stories from journalists, critics, musicians and fans about artists or songs we love (or used to love) despite their questionable or troubling gender politics, and looks at how these issues interact with race, class and sexuality.
As much celebration as critique, this collection explores the joys, tensions, contradictions and complexities of women loving music – however that music may feel about them.
