About the Author

Allan F. Moore is Professor Emeritus in Music at Surrey University and holds various Visiting Professorships. He is best known for work on the analysis and hermeneutics of popular music, particularly in major monographs (Rock: The Primary Text; Song Means), 70 academic papers and 70 (mainly BBC) broadcasts, and also in overseeing various edited collections (Bloomsbury's forthcoming Handbook of Rock Music Research, Ashgate's Critical Readings in Popular Musicology and The Library of Essays in Popular Music). Long-time editor of Popular Music, co-founder of Twentieth-Century Music, he is on various other advisory boards, and edits Routledge's newly commissioned series Music's Interdisciplines. Remy Martin is a Senior Lecturer at Leeds College of Music, where he lectures on a wide range of topics and music styles from analytic, cultural and philosophical perspectives. A graduate of the University of Surrey, Remy previously led popular music analysis and hermeneutics modules there. In his research Remy examines popular music listening experience, drawing from musicology, phenomenologically-oriented theories of embodiment, social theory, ecological psychology and ethics. After gaining early experience in punk and alternative rock bands, Remy went on to specialise in performance and has gigged as a rock, pop, folk and country guitarist.
