In 17, Drummond analyses the past, present, and possible future of music and the ways in which we hear and relate to it. He references his own contributions to the canon of popular music, and he provides fascinating insider portraits of the industry and its protagonists. But above all, he questions our ideas of music and our attitude to sound, introducing us throughout this provocative and superbly written book to his current work, The17.

    " '...It is a well known fact that most artists produce their best work early in their career. They may refine what they do but you usually get the measure of what they are about on their first outing.' "

    " A charity shop find. Wanders well in places and poorly in others. A project I find less interesting than some from the author. "

    " Bill Drummond (Big in Japan, KLF, Timelords, etc.) is trying to reinvent music with his Cage-esque The Seventeen project. "17" is his tour diary, memoir & manifesto. A good read, if you're a music nut who cares about Bill Drummond. "

    " Been chipping at this one over a year, most of the time he is explaining the same theories and experiments again. Although I really commend what he has done, and enjoy his writing, I can't tear through this very quickly. "

    " Drummond's ideas about recorded music and "The 17" are quite interesting, but I don't really care about his personal experiences lecturing on the topic. Also, I really need to get a dedicated ereader, because reading ebooks on my laptop using Digital Editions is pretty awful. "

    " well researched and written. convey's a sense of horror these men faced, and the strength of character it took to do their job. how can anyone complain after reading what they endured. "

    " Somewhat disjointed and confusing narrative that includes both fascinating details on aircrew experience as well as more tedious details of command structure and inter-personality conflicts. Worth reading, but at times becomes a chore "

    " This is about a "failed" bomber mission over Germany during WWII... it tells the stories of different crew members who survived and were able to escape from the German soldiers. Pretty cool stories. "
