This Noise is Free by Andy Green
This Noise is Free is a book about buskers and busking, drawing on the authors experience as a street musician. Its a front-row seat to the universe, located somewhere between the rainbow and the gutter, between pigeons and gargoyles, slaveholder mansions and charity shops licking their lips. Inspired by Walt Whitman, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson and Elizabeth Cotten, Andy Green is an unofficial archivist of life on the streets, from Matlock to Memphis, exploring their hidden histories, characters, music and unexpected camaraderie. This Noise is Free is a book about public art, good music, bad weather, and not getting a proper job.
