We long ago embraced Wilde Shaw and Sheridan all October 17, 2011
Reviewer: Philip Chevron The Pogues from Republic of Ireland  
We long ago embraced Wilde  Shaw and Sheridan  all Irish playwrights living in England  as integral to a lively British theatre culture. Until now  we have heard less about Morrissey  MacGowan  Rowland and the rest of the second generation Irish in British popular music. Sean Campbell s enthralling study  with its direct access to these musicians  incisively opens the discussion and sets an exceptionally high standard against which all other interrogations of post colonialism in pop culture are likely to be weighed.

This is not just a subtle and sophisticated schola October 17, 2011
Reviewer: Simon Frith Tovey Professor of Music University from Republic of Ireland  
This is not just a subtle and sophisticated scholarly contribution to popular music and Irish studies. It is also a fine and exciting account of how music can be used to make sense of the complexity  anxiety and exhilaration of contemporary cultural identities

This is a highly valuable book on the Irish diaspo October 17, 2011
Reviewer: Nabeel Zuberi authors of Sounds English from Republic of Ireland  
This is a highly valuable book on the Irish diaspora and the politics of post imperial popular culture in the UK. It reveals how Irish English musicians struggled and succeeded in making the nation s multi ethnic history and culture more audible and visible in a particularly inhospitable climate for the Irish. The book makes a significant contribution to the cultural history of the 1970s and 1980s  and contains lessons for the present in which England and the United Kingdom continue to fashion other  enemies within .

This is an excellent piece of scholarship offerin October 17, 2011
Reviewer: Noel McLaughlin Co author of Rock and Popular Mus from Republic of Ireland  
This is an excellent piece of scholarship  offering an erudite mix of rigorous cultural history and insightful musical analysis. It is a major contribution to popular music scholarship generally and Irish popular music in particular. It very deftly opens up and gives critical texture to the complexities of the in between spaces of the English/Irish musical world  and significantly forwards discussions of hybridity.

The role of the second generation Irish in shaping September 13, 2011
Reviewer: The Observer from Republic of Ireland  
The role of the second generation Irish in shaping British pop has  until now  been all but overlooked. Sean Campbell looks deeply and thought provokingly at the second generation Irish  in betweenness  of Kevin Rowland  Shane MacGowan and  perhaps most surprisingly  Morrissey and Johnny Marr of The Smiths  that seemingly most English of pop groups. He sheds new light on their songs and on the strategies of protest  resistance and assimilation articulated therein.  Irish Blood  English Heart  is a constantly intriguing and often provocative book about the complex process   and peculiar freedom   of not wholly belonging to one culture or the other
