Henry Cow Book Reviewed

Source: Cornell Chronicle.

Cornell professor Benjamin Piekut’s latest book is an exhaustive study of an experimental British group that blurred the lines between genres as it created captivating music.

In “Henry Cow: The World Is a Problem,” Piekut achieves an intimate, and comprehensive, portrait of Henry Cow, the avant-garde rock band that found diverse audiences and sought autonomy from the music establishment, operating as a collective in pursuit of aesthetic and political goals and, ultimately, winning both critical acclaim and fringe success over a decade of making music.
