It came a few days ago. I spent a several hours at my local bar drinking shochu and reading the book. I figured you had to be a real SY fan, and probably also a board member to get into the book. But that turned out not to be the case. I think the book will speak to anyone who has chosen to step into the river and let it carry them someplace new. Who can't help but to like a clever story of transformation hidden in several years worth of concert reviews.

All, I want to know is why that guy kicked your suitcase at ATP. That's such a random and senseless thing, unless he was sizing it up for a hidden stash of electronics to abscond with.

About half way through...and loving it.

The way you describe the ATP gig in England gives me goose-bumps. I want to go to a SY gig like that!!

You can't go wrong with SY at ATP. It's gold, Barry, gold.

Hey Jenn, yr book is fantastic. I delved into it and am about 40 pages from the conclusion. The whole thing is great but especially liked reading about the English ATPs and looking forward to reading about No Fun.
Also, love how you say "Got to. It's real life."
Cool pics too.
All in all, it has inspired me to write about some of the Sonic gigs I've attended over the years which I will post when I have finished.

Don't know if I like fanbooks. Don't know if I like the other fans. So just ordered it to have a look.

I think it's more than a "fanbook." Then again, I would think that.

@Rob: No, of course.

But I think I like the book. I don't understand all the kool slangish words and phrases. But sometimes the unperfect and personal style of writing is very ... funny? I don't know how to explain in English.

But the typography hurts!

No Setlist is not just a compilation of Sonic Youth concert reviews covering the time period May 1998 to May 2009. It is more than anything else an unabashed love story--of the creative spirit, of friends, of discoveries, of life. Aided and abetted by 44 pages of tremendous color photos (some personal, most shots from select concerts), these journals immerse you into the experience of countless miles on the bus or plane, exploring the sights, and meeting numerous other Sonic Youth fans at home and abroad. No Setlist is a must-have for not only Sonic Youth fans, but also anyone seeking to understand the unique mindset of that beautiful beast, the "hardcore fan."

Update here: all 100 copies of the first printing are gone. I'm ordering a
second pressing due to continued interest. I'm feeling like my
avatar, basically.
