One of these days I'll get this thing right. Anyway, updates:
My latest post at PopMatters, this one concerning the new album by Chastity Belt, I Used to Spend So Much Time Alone. This calls back to a piece I wrote last year about the Felice Brothers and "termite art."
My book is being finished up. One day I'll write about collating your own index. "Hellish" is too strong word, right, probably, maybe not. Anyway, there'll be a website for the book, Nothing Has Been Done Before: Seeking the New in 21st-Century American Popular Music; I'd like to put together an online resource, simple but substantial. I have the domains purchased, just need to set it up. In the meantime, you can learn more about my book at Bloomsbury's site.
I'll have another PopMatters column shortly, another piece there I'm excited about, and a review at the wonderful Los Angeles Review of Books pretty soon, too.
Lacking a relevant picture (oh, right, the book cover), here's a snap of Spike.
