Ever wanted to know how to play the didgeridoo? Or who makes the fastest raps in the world? Or why the Chinese sang into bamboo canes back in the 9th century? Sullivan's Music Trivia has the answers. With over 400 musical facts that range from the deeply obscure to the delightfully populist, this book contains everything you didn't think you needed to know about music, but do. Presented with a range of easy to remember diagrams, tables and charts, Sullivan's Music Trivia is an essential book for trainspotters and casual music fans alike. Music journalist and global traveller, Paul Sullivan opens up a Pandora's box of facts, figures, illustrations and songs to provide hours of mirth and incredulity for all music lovers.

Fun potpourri of music trivia, part of the wave of pop reference tomes that shamelessly ripped off the Schott's miscellany format in the early 2000s. Badly let down by a few clumsy typos and factual errors that should have been picked up by editors. Read full review
