Synopsis

Wizard rock"" (i.e. music written about the Harry Potter book series by British author J. K. Rowling) is an idiosyncratic genre of music that includes quirky bands with names like ""Harry and the Potters,"" ""Draco and the Malfoys,"" and ""The Whomping Willows."" This book-derived largely from insider insight, participant observation, and interviews with over a dozen wizard rockers-is the first holistic ethnography of the movement ever undertaken, and contained in these pages in exploration of the genre's history, as well as an exploration of how (and why!) bands write, record, perform this most unique style of music. This work also includes an exhaustive appendix that lists dozens of the most popular wizard rock bands, the names of their members, and the titles of their various releases, making it a must-have for fandom academics and wizard rock scholars alike.
