"This book examines these artists' relationship to the historical avant-garde and neo-avant-garde, considering their work in light of debates about modernism versus postmodernism. The author analyzes how performers used dissonance and noise within music, the role of social commentary in songs, and how experiments with concert and studio performance proceeded in cultural and political unrest"-- Provided by publisher.
