"New York, 2001. 9/11 plunges the US into a state of war and political volatility--and heralds the rebirth of the city's rock scene. As the old-guard music industry crumbles, a group of iconoclastic bands suddenly becomes the voice of a generation desperately in need of an anthem. In this fascinating and vibrant oral history, acclaimed journalist Lizzy Goodman charts New York's explosive musical transformation in the early 2000s. Drawing on over 200 original interviews, Goodman follows the meteoric rise of the artists that revolutionised the cultural landscape and made Brooklyn the hipster capital of cool--including The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Interpol, and Vampire Weekend. Joining the ranks of classics like Please Kill Me, Our Band Could Be Your Life, and Can't Stop Won't Stop, Meet Me in the Bathroom is the definitive account of an iconic era in rock-and-roll."--Page 4 of cover
