A Band with Built-In Hate, by Peter Stanfield

Staff Pick

Peter Stanfield’s A Band With Built-In Hate casts rock’n’roll legends The Who as practitioners of mid-20th-century modern art, showing the connections between their work and movements such as auto-destructive art, French and British independent film, and, in particular, pop art. He illustrates how the band slowly transitioned from their early-days commitment to forward movement into a long and prosperous career capitalizing on nostalgia for their fever-pitched younger days.
