'Madchester Rave on': Placing the Fragments of Popular Music

Abstract

Geographers have neglected popular music, in spite of its key role in cultural identity. Using the example of Manchester, we outline geography's role in forging a certain distinctiveness to the city's 'independent' music. It is suggested that such musical fragments, which complement and contrast with the global aspirations of mainstream popular music, feed into the formation of postmodern 'neo-tribes'.
