Some weekend reading… and a small contest.

  • We just got office copies of Matthew LeMay’s book on Elliott Smith’s XO, so keep an eye out for that one. Pre-ordered copies should be shipping from Amazon very soon, and your friendly neighborhood bookshop will have copies on shelves, too.
  • We also unearthed this recent review of John Darnielle’s Black Sabbath 33 1/3 from Enough Cowbell. We are trying to figure out what that thing is that’s on his lap in the press photo. So far we only know it’s male and probably from the southern hemisphere. First one to correctly ID it for us in the comments field will get a rare galley copy of the Sabbath book.


  1. BZA is a winner! Send me your mailing address at jmboling@continuum-books.comTT is also a winner! The male part was easy enough to figure out, but the rockist part was inspired genius. Send me an email.Let’s push this one step further: Can anyone name a white male rockist band from the 80s with a song in their catalogue involving wombats?

  2. The Steve Miller song was from 1969, and though the Police song was released in 1979, that’s the one I was thinking of…So, TT and Nicola, send me your mailing addresses!
