Once found only on college radio and small clubs, indie rock has exploded from the underground phenomenon its name suggests to a major rock genre with arena concerts and major-label successes from the Flaming Lips and Fastbacks to Bright Eyes and Modest Mouse.
Photographer Peter Ellenby has captured the bands and musicians that make up this vibrant scene. Hundreds of pictures create a document of a vital music scene that has sent some to super-stardom and defined a generation.
Comes with a 21-track CD with music by Death Cab for Cutie, American Music Club, The Wedding Present, and other bands that created this groundbreaking phenomenon.
