i shot a man in reno by graeme thompson

This meditation on popular music’s treatment of death through the decades has some solid moments ? especially the chapters on rap and murder ballads ?but somewhow didn’t quite cohere for me. I think I was looking for more on music and less on death. Interesting notes about atavistic themes and murder ballads, though.
