About the Author

Marianne Tatom Letts holds music degrees from the University of North Texas and the University of Texas at Austin.


The book is well written and researched. Further, it builds on existing rock scholarship, especially that of James Doheny, Tim Footman, Martin Clarke, Allan Moore and Anwar Ibrahim. . . . It adds to the growing field of rock scholarship and should make a fine addition to any library that boasts such a focus.

Marianne Tatom Letts's excellent new book returns to the origins of the band's subversive marketing strategies . . . Letts's smart, in-depth account reveals as much about Radiohead's ambivalent and conflicted relationship with popular culture and contemporary capitalism as it does about their musical appeal. 8/3/2011

-- "Rain Taxi"

This is the kind of text that could likely transform a college-level music theory course for the better, prompting discussions about everything from the structure of modern rock music to the sometimes conflicted triangular relationship between performers, media and the masses. And, needless to say, it's required reading for Radiohead cultists. 2/8/2011
