Buying A Record Guide In The Year 2014: Special Incentive Plan #1: Gimme Indie Rock: 500 Essential American Underground Albums 1981 – 1996!!!!
The offer and how to enjoy it:
FOR a limited number of firstie-gen (I did not!) copies of my new book that I will sign, personally inscribe to each new owner, and ADD AN ERA-APPROPRIATE 7″ BY A BAND W/ ALBUMS COVERED IN THE BOOK, PRICE!! Then, as a good reason to bring things back down from all-caps mountain, a back issue of The Cimarron Weekend #00005 from 1997/98 so recipients get the very first thing I (co-)wrote that had a cover price as well as the most recent (this late development also applies to everyone who has already placed an order). Price: $30
Interested? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and any instructions re: the inscription, as well as a stated desire to participate in this special, limited time offer, then I will reply with my Paypal e-mail (not the same!!). I should have a Paypal shopping cart active here by the weekend or early next week, so please accept my apologies for the “welcome to 2003!” ordering process at the moment.
PLEASE NOTE: The NM or better, previously-but-barely-loved 7″ accompanying your “Buying A Record Guide In The Year 2014: Special Incentive Plan #1″ order will be a quality offering I picked up on behalf of this (then-future) idea while digging around over the last month or two, and it will be a RANDOM selection from said lot. You don’t see these every day, but you don’t see them on the wall, either, if that makes sense. I cannot list artists or give any examples, as that would kill the spirit and fun of this, for better or worse, self-proclaimed “circa-now” experiment in promoting/peddling my own book. Once you receive your signed, inscribed, and 7″-accompanied book, hit Twitter with a pic & what you think of what I thought you should add to your 7″ collection…AND make sure to tweet me @GimmeIndie500!!
…then some cool things happen and get thrown into the sitch…
I was just letting the world gather itself, pack its lunch, and BREEEEEEAAAAATH….
….but now I’m back because GIMME INDIE ROCK: 500 ESSENTIAL AMERICAN
UNDERGROUND ROCK ALBUMS 1981 – 1996 will be ruling the music section of
your nearest bookstore….IN 25 DAYS!!! CHECK BOOK’S PAGE ON THIS SITE!
…and they also happen to be the best underground rock (or related) thing to ever come out of my hometown, Memphis, TN. Check out one of the greatest moments on a great album, “Just Passing Out”, from 1993’s One Sock Missing.
