Foreword by John DoeIntroduction by Tim ScanlinText by Christopher SlaterOnce found only on college radio and small clubs, indie rock has exploded from the underground phenomenon its name suggests to a major rock genre with arena concerts and major label successes-from the Flaming Lips and Fastbacks to Bright Eyes and Modest Mouse. Through this radical evolution of the past decade, photographer Peter Ellenby has captured the bands and musicians that make up this vibrant scene. An impromptu shooter with a fan´s eye, Ellenby uses an array of cameras-some of the plastic toy variety-that reveal the energy and street ethic that these bands live and work by. Hundreds of pictures create a document of a vital music scene that has sent some to superstardom and defined a generation. Comes with a 21-track CD with music by Death Cab for Cutie, American Music Club, The Wedding Present, and other bands that created this groundbreaking phenomenon. Peter Ellenby has been taking photographs almost his entire life. He has lived in San Francisco since 1994, when he began shooting indie bands. His work has been used by bands, labels, and publications around the globe.John Doe is a founding member and songwriter for the seminal postpunk Los Angeles band X.
