to Britney Spears The first comprehensive book on the sticky, sickly, sweet confectionary known as bubblegum music, this collection takes in all the key bands of this much despised genre from the Archies to the Partridge Family and from Abba to Jonathan King. Packed with interviews with the session musicians, producers and writers who gave bubblegum its bounce, it provides histories of the genres, labels and artists and takes an unblinking look at the dark side of the music, from dirty lyrics to shameful business practices.

This is a pretty great book- and it's more interesting than the subject might indicate.

If you're really really REALLY keen on bubblegum music, you probably already have this thing resting on the altar in your bubblegum basilica. (You weirdo).

This book is congested with layers and layers of information, yet I feel like I've learned practically nothing. Probably because I skimmed over most of it. It's just way too in-depth on a genre, it turns out, I'm not actually all that interested in.

Yeah bubblegum music is super cool, and without it we wouldn't have Tommy James or The Archies, or the Ramones! But I already knew that and, ultimately, that's all I needed to know.
