Subtitled: Glam, Proto Punk, And Bubblegum: European Picture Sleeves 1970-1976. "In these three-hundred-eighty-four pages of garish, pop and glam rock, European picture sleeve glory, Wired Up! celebrates the sights and sounds of the zeitgeist aberration that was early '70s glitter rock records -- where the flash, shock and outrageousness of the picture sleeve oftentimes proved just as important as the explosive sounds within. As a renaissance of style, a riot of color and the raving rocking rebirth of the three-minute-pop single, Wired Up! is not only an early clue to the new direction rock and roll was taking in the 1970's, but the final statement on a disposable era's lasting appeal." Preface by Robin Wills; includes interviews with Gordon Nicol (Iron Virgin), Alan Gordon (Hector), Chris Townson (The Jook), Jesse Hector (The Hammersmith Gorillas), Ramma Damma, Brett Smiley and Sal Maida (Milk N' Cookies). Hardcover, full-color, 9"x9", unbelievable.
