Byron C. told me he was gonna be writing the authorized SY bio. that's the only new SY info I have to share. should be interesting!

I always thought Byron should write a book on them, Seward by the way used to write for the Village Voice for a number of years

Great news indeed.

Byron Coley, Robert Palmer and David Browne were really the only critics I ever read that consistently wrote well on SY.

Spanish journalist Ignacio Julią is a good one, too.

i would love for Byron to issue a ton of his writings via anthologies. C'est La Guerre was really good.

I'm reading the Browne book at the moment, it's been years (like 16 or 17 years) since I read the Foege book but so far I'm not getting that much difference between the two, other than Browne going on about how focused and hip SY are and then glossing over events. I guess there are only so many ways to tell a story. I'm interested to see what BC can add that these two books don't have.

Obviously I find this compulsively readable though

I found Goodbye 20th Century quite revelatory in ways that Confusion is Next was not. I enjoyed CIN at the time, but it seemed to dash towards the finish line and gloss over the last few years it covers, where-as G20C goes into extensive detail on the mid-late 90s, which I found fascinating. The fact that G20C covers 12+ years after CIN should be difference enough!

Browne seemed to get some pretty interesting, honest responses from the band and their associates. Obviously Coley has a different relationship with the band, so I'm sure he'd get a unique angle. I enjoy his SY writings when he tones it down (Dirty liners, for example). I'm always happy to get more information, so I hope this is true...

Yeah, I'm just getting up to Dirty and at this point it does go into more depth than CIS, I guess maybe at the time of CIS they were not able to talk as freely about their experiences at Geffen as they could with GB20C.

I wonder given Coley's closeness to SY how much he'll be able to write about the band's demise, particularly in light of recent events.

I agree w/ CL on this. I read CIN so many times when I was younger. But I def felt I got more out of G20C. I remember making all these little notes of shit to research. Just things mentioned like about their proposed piano album for instance. Or I loved the section where it really went into details of Walls Have Ears. Stuff like that which just might have been too small a detail for a wider audience but the kind of stuff I'd obsess over just being mentioned.
