Musicians have often wanted to change the world. From underground innovators to pop icons many have believed in the political power of music. Rulers recognise it too. Music has been used to challenge the political and social order – and to prop up the status quo.

Sound System is the story of one musician’s journey to discover what makes music so powerful. Dave Randall uses his insider’s knowledge of the industry to shed light on the secrets of celebrity, commodification and culture. It is a book of raves, riots and revolution and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interests of the many, rather than the few.
Dave Randall is a musician and activist. He has toured the world playing guitar with Faithless, Sinead O’Connor, Emiliana Torrini and many others.

“A terrific, exciting book, weaving together music, politics and worldwide struggles”. Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (writer and journalist)
 
“A thrilling trip through the dark corners and secret gardens of the music world” Maxi Jazz (Faithless)
