Die Not hat ein Ende – The Swiss Art of Rock (“Need Comes To an End” – The Swiss Art of Rock”) is Lurker Grand’s third and most recent book project in a trilogy published by Edition Patrick Frey (Zurich). As already in 2006 in Hot Love – Swiss Punk & Wave 1976 – 1980 and 2012 in Heute und danach – The Swiss Underground Music Scene of the 80s, this new book is concerned with only one thing: the history of rock music in Switzerland. Here the focus is not so much on a musical era and its protagonists as on the visualization of the subcultures. Designers, graphic designers, musicians, and photographers from across Switzerland visualize the last 50 years of local rock and pop music history through their album covers, concert posters, flyers, fanzines, comics and photographs. Die Not hat ein Ende – The Swiss Art of Rock is not just another colourful book about music, but instead an impressive historical document of an era.
