Publishers Description: Sexing the Groove discusses these issues and many more, bringing together leading music and cultural theorists to explore the relationships between popular music, gender and sexuality. The contributors, who include Mavis Beayton, Stella Bruzzi, Sara Cohen, Sean Cubitt, Keith Negus and Will Straw, debate how popular music performers, subcultures, fans and texts construct and deconstruct masculine' and feminine' identities. Using a wide range of case studies, from Mick Jagger to Riot Grrrls, they demonstrate that there is nothing natural', permanent or immovable about the regime of sexual difference which governs society and culture.Sexing the Groove also includes a comprehensive annotated bibliography for further reading and research into gender and popular music.
