33 1/3 Series Update


The 33 1/3 series started in Fall 2003. Well, it started long before then, but that’s when Continuum published the first few volumes.

Since then it has grown into one of the most important platforms for music writing…and IN PRINT nonetheless. So thank you for your continued support.

We are just about to hit the 10 year marker for the series and we’ll be celebrating this momentous occasion all next year.

There will be a flurry of activity on this blog as well as author events, readings and listening parties. More on all of that soon…

But let’s get to the books.

The next 5 volumes in the series will be:

#87 Serge Gainsbourg’s Histoire de Melody Nelson by Darran Anderson

Publication date: October 24, 2013. Pre-order here.

#88 They Might Be Giants’ Flood by S. Alexander Reed and Philip Sandifer

Publication date: November 21, 2013. Pre-order here.

#89 Andrew WK’s I Get Wet by Phillip Crandall

Oh and guess what?

  2. Looking forward to availability in Australia… particularly before the Hole Live Through This volume.

  3. Congrats, you guys. Serious props to keep the series alive and in print over the last decade, which has not been the most friendly climate for book publishing, to say the least. Cheers.
