Body piercing saved my life

New popular music books this month explore the lives of Peggy Lee, Johnny Cash and Bob Marley. Well-known British music journo Simon Reynolds has released 'Rip it up and start again : postpunk 1978-1984'. Andrew Beaujon investigates American Christian rock in 'Body piercing saved my life', a genre in which fundamentalist evangelical Christianity is set to folky ballads and wrenching metal.
