New Book - Includes STN Sunn O))) Profile
Posted: Jul 1, 2009
I've put together a new book, "Sound Levels: Profiles in American Music, 2002-2009," which I'm self-publishing through lulu.com. It
includes the Signal To Noise piece on Sunn, along with profiles of Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman, Mike Patton, the Melvins, Oxbow, David Thomas of Pere Ubu, Noah Howard, Calle 13, the Mars Volta, Café Tacuba, Serj Tankian and Bill Dixon. Each piece is accompanied by a new introduction telling some of the story behind the piece or providing more background information, including tales of fights with publicists, pieces I actually didn't like once they were published,
etc. I did the whole thing in Quark and Photoshop (my wife took the cover photo), and if you've got a book project in the works, I can unequivocally recommend lulu.com for print-on-demand sales. Their interface is ridiculously easy to use and the book looks great; nice paper stock and a thick, glossy cover.
Here's a URL where people can get it:
