Some time ago I published my first book, “Pop Cult: Religion and Popular Music”. It’s still available, and a good read, if I do say so myself.
I recently wrote a chapter of the book Pop Pagans: Paganism and Popular Music. My chapter is “Paganism, Popular Music and Stonehenge”. Available at good bookshops!
I am a member of the editorial board of the IASPM Journal (the journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music). I recently acted as Guest Editor for a special issue focused on Popular Music Studies in the 21st century. As well as editing the volume I wrote an extended editorial. You can find it at:
