In my early teens, a formative reference book was the Illustrated NME Encyclopedia of Rock1, a jumping-off point for the discovery of all manner of bands. Ian Helliwell’s Tape Leaders strongly reminded me of that tome. His work is academic in neither tone nor content, but it is well researched, rich in content and seductive. It may serve as a useful springboard from which scholars – or the intrigued ‘lay listener’ – can dive into the unsuspectedly deep and murky end of early British electronic music.
