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

Achtung Bono!

News reaches us via Neil McCormick's tweeting that Bono thinks the approach of Stephen Catanzarite's 33 1/3 on Achtung Baby "sounds bang on". Always good to get that kind of feedback!

In other news, currently at the printers are the 33 1/3 books on Brian Eno (no, really!), Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, and the Flaming Lips. And we'll know, within a month, if the books on the Clash, Nine Inch Nails, Lucinda Williams, and Van Dyke Parks are ever going to exist, or if they'll join the sad stack of 33 1/3s that never saw the light of day.

And I was thrilled to receive an email from Pete Astor in London, which is a good excuse to put this clip up - enjoy:

With the books that never were, is it just a case of the writers not being able to finish them?

Could you make a list/blog of all the could-have-been's, it would be fun to see.

Could you throw a bone to some of the runners up of the last open call!

Yeah, London Calling - I'll do it, man. The whole thing, it's just etched on the mystic writing pad. No problem.

Yes, what's going on with the four books in question?

Been waiting for "Pinkerton" a long time...
