On the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the famed Benicassim/ Rock Werchter music festival, along with the upcoming exhibition in the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, this book explores the 'unknown' visual side of some of the most popular faces of rock and pop bands, giving an insight into the genesis of their music. Most of the bands have linked contemporary art in their lyrics and songwriting and have engaged in productive crossovers. The book compiles the artworks of bands and musicians from the 70's until today, musicians for whom visual art is yet another strung in their creative process. It features 20 artists including: Brian Eno, Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Patti Smith, the Residents, The Kills, Devendra Banhart, Anthony and the Johnsons, Chicks on Speed, Miss Kitten, Fischerspooner, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Pete Doherty, David Byrne...
