The New Music Journalism
Faber Forty-Fives is a series of six short ebooks that between them tell the story of British pop music from the birth of psychedelia in the late sixties, through electric folk, glam, seventies rock and punk, to the eclecticism of post-punk in the late seventies and early eighties. Each book is drawn from a larger work on Faber’s acclaimed music list.

The New Music Journalism is legendary music journalist Nick Kent’s memoir of 1973 and 1974, two years that saw him go from aspiring, suburban scribe to celebrity journalist and companion to the likes of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones. From hanging out with Lester Bangs in the States to dating Chrissie Hynde, Kent recalls an astonishing cast of seventies figures. But as his fame grew, so did his dependency upon narcotics, and these two years recount also the manic highs and strung-out lows such an appetite can bring.
