Synopsis

Document and Eyewitness: An Intimate History of Rough Trade by Neil Taylor

Rough Trade is practically a byword for the history of independent music over the last thirty years. Document and Eyewitness tells the story from the inside of a phenomenally influential record label, through the voices of Geoff Travis, Jarvis Cocker, Robert Wyatt, Green Gartside and many many more. From the early records of Cabaret Voltaire, Kleenex and the Swell Maps, through to groundbreaking releases by The Fall, The Smiths and Scritti Pollitti, on through the collapse of the independent collective and the rebirth of Rough Trade at the turn of the century, this will be the definitive, essential account for any serious music fan.
