Matt Brennan is Reader in Popular Music at the University of Glasgow. He has served as Chair of the UK and Ireland branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) and published several books in the field of popular music studies. His previous monograph, When Genres Collide, was named as one of Pitchfork's "Favourite Music Books of 2017."
Unpitched musical instruments have long been segregated from their pitched cousins. Brennan's exhaustively researched social history explains why this is so and goes a long way to the reinstatement of parity. Compulsory reading for the inquisitive drummer. * Bill Bruford * With a winning mix of erudition and enthusiasm Brennan argues convincingly that drummers are the dynamic core of music history. And in offering an exemplary case study of the drum kit, Brennan shows that musical instrument research should be the dynamic core of music scholarship. Kick It is an enthralling read. * Simon Frith, Emeritus Professor of Music, University of Edinburgh *
