It features individual profiles of over a hundred bands and artists and over sixty local clubs and venues. Every page is packed with photos, articles, posters and images from the period.
Also available to order is the accompanying four CD set with more than four hours of music from over eighty of the local artists featured in this book. Bradford's Noise Of The Valleys Volume One is the first in a trio of books about the Bradford music scene. Bradford's Noise Of The Valleys Volume 2 continues the history from 1988 to 1998.
