A Band with Built-In Hate: The Who from Pop Art to Punk – Hardback Book
by Peter Stanfield
An indepth exploration of the first ten years of The Who’s creative activity by Pete Stanfield, a professor of Film at Kent University (and previously Bournemouth film school) and true aficionado of outsider pop culture, not least punk rock. “A Band With Built-In Hate pictures The Who from their inception as The Detours in the mid-1960s to the late ’70s, post Quadrophenia… Above all, [this book] tells of how The Who confronted their lost youth as it was echoed in punk”.
