Rockeros insurgentes, modernos complacientes: un análisis sociológico del rock en la Transición (1975-1985)

‘Rockeros insurgentes, modernos complacientes: un análisis sociológico del rock en la Transición (1975-1985) [Insurgent Rockers, Modern Complacents: a sociological analysis of rock in the Transition (1975-1985)]’ by Fernán del Val Ripollés

This book analyses the pop-rock music field during the Spanish political transition (1975-1985), approaching the scenes and musical genres that emerged, the youth cultures and social movements of that time, and the role played by the music press. If there is a musical scene analysed in Spain that is the ‘Movida madrileña’. This book states that the ‘Movida’ was not alone: other musical and cultural scenes accompanied its evolution and marked the history. Scenes such as the ‘rock urbano’, heavy metal, the ‘rock andaluz’ or the ‘rock layetano’, born almost at the same time as the ‘Movida’, and whose impact has not been analyzed or studied in depth before.
