A blog about Bloomsbury Academic's 33 1/3 series, our other books about music, and the world of sound in general.

Coming up in 2008

As promised, although a few days late (soz), here's how the 33 1/3 series looks for the remainder of 2008.

Publishing in the next ten days or so:

Slayer's Reign in Blood by DX Ferris

Richard and Linda Thompson's Shoot Out the Lights by Hayden Childs

Publishing in Aug/Sept/Oct (definitely!):

The Afghan Whigs' Gentlemen, by Bob Gendron

The Pogues' Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, by Jeff Roesgen

The Flying Burrito Brothers' Gilded Palace of Sin, by Bob Proehl

With any luck there'll be three or four more publishing in Nov/Dec, but more on those when I have the finished manuscripts on my desk.

Upcoming call for Proposals

Still no decision on this, but I'm crossing my fingers that we'll be able to announce an open call for proposals at some point in October - more details as soon as I have them, obviously.

Currently on the headphones:

"The Time Is Now" by Moloko.

Man, I was hoping we'd have gotten Another Green World by now.

I was just wondering what happened to the Green World book myself the other day... Very eager for the Richard Thompson one though!

I'm looking forward to a 33 1/3 entry on XTC, myself.

Any insight to shed on what's going on with the Pretty Hate Machine book? Amazon cancelled my pre-order.

what's the average word count for these books?

Would also love one on XTC, Talking Heads or Can. Great blog, thanks.

The Thompson book is quite entertaining so far. Virgil, Dante Alighieri, Richard Thompson...quite a cast so far.

Very much looking forward to the Afghan Whigs Gentleman book.
