With an incredibly imaginative twist. Inspired by the video for Kylie Minogues hit single Cant Get You Out of My Head, Morley is driving with Kylie towards a virtual city built of sound and ideas in search of the answer to the question: has pop burnt itself out? Their ensuing journey bridges the various paradoxes of twentieth-century culture, as they meet a succession of celebrities and geniuses - including Madonna, Kraftwerk, Wittgenstein and the ghost of Elvis Presley - and explore the iconic and the obscure, the mechanical and the digital, the avant-garde, and pop itself. Paul Morley is a man obsessed, and hes about to share his obsession with us, the reader, in pursuit of the sexily philosophical things crawling through the moist, scratchy undergrowth of rock and roll.
