Shock and Awe
- Glam Rock and Its Legacy, from the Seventies to the Twenty-First Century
- By: Simon Reynolds
- Narrated by: Nicholas Camm
- Length: 23 hrs and 21 mins
Shock and Awe offers a fresh, in-depth look at the glam and glitter phenomenon, placing it in the wider '70s context of social upheaval and political disillusion. It explores how artists like Lou Reed, New York Dolls, and Queen broke with the hippie generation, celebrating illusion and artifice over truth and authenticity. Probing the genre's major themes - stardom, androgyny, image, decadence, fandom, apocalypse - Reynolds tracks glam's legacy as it unfolded in subsequent decades, from '80s art-pop icons to 21st-century idols of outrage.
