about

An oral history of 'Rock Against Racism', '2 Tone', and 'Red Wedge', consisting of interviews with over 150 contributors, from the acclaimed writer of Isle of Noises.Walls Come Tumbling Down charts the pivotal period between 1976 and 1992 that saw politics and pop music come together for the first time in Britain's musical history; musicians and their fans suddenly became instigators of social change, and 'the political persuasion of musicians was as important as the songs they sang'.
