Let legendary rock manager Simon Napier-Bell take you inside the (dodgy) world of popular music – not just a creative industry, but a business that has made people rich beyond their wildest dreams. He balances seductive anecdotes – pulling back the curtain on the gritty and absurd side of the industry – with an insightful exploration of the relationship between creativity and money. This book describes the evolution of the industry from 1713 – the year parliament granted writers ownership over what they wrote – to today, when a global, 100 billion pound industry is controlled by just three major players: Sony, Universal and Warner. Inside you will uncover some little-known facts about the industry, including: How a formula for writing hit songs in the 1900s helped create 50,000 of the best-known songs of all time. How infighting in the American pre-war music industry shut down traditional radio and created an opening for country music, race records and rock'n'roll. How Jewish immigrants and black jazz musicians dancing cheek-to-cheek created a template for all popular music that followed. How rock tours became the biggest, quickest, sleaziest and most profitable ventures the music industry has ever seen. After reading Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay, you'll never listen to music in the same way again.
The music industries hinge on entrepreneurship.

But it's not an easy territory to navigate or get a handle on. Music Entrepreneurship features an analysis of the changing landscape of the music industries and the value of the entrepreneur within them through a series of focused chapters and case studies. Alongside contributions from key academics across the globe, expert contributors from across the industry highlight successful entrepreneurs and offers practical help to the reader trying to navigate the business.

The Andrex Puppy. The Smash Martians. The Oxo Family and The Honey Monster. From the late 1960s, advertising agency account planners helped to develop long-running advertising campaigns that went on to build well-known household brands that we still use today. It was a golden era of advertising, partly because the campaigns seemed to connect with consumers so well. But who were the account planners who helped to develop these campaigns and build these brands? In 98% Pure Potato, the untold history of those real-life men and women is revealed through insights and anecdotes from some of account planning’s most revered pioneers: David Baker, John Bruce, David Cowan, Lee Godden, Christine Gray, EV Jenkins, John Madell, Jane Newman, Jim Williams, Roderick White, Paul Feldwick, Jan Zajac and many more. Industry experts John Griffiths and Tracey Follows trace the true beginnings, rise and evolution of the discipline that came to be known as ‘advertising account planning’, uncovering how the UK’s most iconic campaigns came to be, and exploring what challenges and opportunities lie ahead. This is the enlightening history of how a fundamental part of advertising practice came out of the UK, as well as an instrumental guide for anyone working or hoping to work in the advertising industry today.
