thanks for a link, where to get it. when I checked last time on amazon, I think I have seen it is only coming out next month or so, do not remember correctly coz it was already some time ago when I was checking, therefore I might not remember correctly and now I see first reviews from you guys. so it must mean it is out (or those are just copies for priliveged people before release date) I have to order it via Omnibus later today when I get home. wont be lying, I want this big time.

so US edtion is out in August. what about Europe, is it out, or no?

NickSoulsby 03.21.2017 09:30 AM

The current line-up is the U.K. edition is out now and the U.S. edition will be out in August. The publisher is looking at other countries but it relies on negotiations with other publishers (publishing is nation-based in most cases.) It's not a heavy book weight-wise so don't think it'll cost too much to ship between countries but if someone from abroad does go to Amazon.co.uk (or an equivalent source) - I'd be intrigued to hear how much the shipping to their country was...

I received the book yesterday... I ordered it more in a completist state of mind rather than for a real interest for ALL the TM improvised collaborations & solo stuff but I ended up reading it the whole evening.
The oral form works very well and makes the book very interesting

Congratulations to M. Soulsby to have done such a well ducumented and amazing work !

That's really sweet of you. Glad it worked. Doing this as a hobby around work it makes a real difference - hearing from people in the book that they enjoyed it, Thurston saying he "digged" what it ended up being...That kinda thing.

Speaking at Waterstones in Camden, London tomorrow - happy to sign stuff and just talk Sonic Youth with people.

Where else are you heading on your signage journeys?

Don't have a copy of the book yet. Sorry. Will order.

Nothing planned, but I'm always bobbing about between London and Bristol so always happy to say hi to people with an interest in music if it fits the schedule.

If you like I'm happy to write something on paper and mail it to you to be added to the front of your copy...? Bit of a work-around...

I'm also happy to share the XLS version of the discography with anyone who wants it just in case it's helpful when collecting Thurston's appearances and releases (I didn't/don't track reissues, songs featured that first appeared elsewhere, remixes, production or inlay note contributions: just his actual songs/music and their first appearance.)

Book gets a shout out at the start of this interview:

If you haven't heard it yet, Thurston is in a thoughtful, talky mood.

Received my copy of the book today. Can't wait to read!
