Read an Excerpt from the Upcoming 33 1/3 Book Detailing the Talking Heads' 'Fear of Music' Album

Thu, 12 Apr 2012 13:02:42

 

 

Back in January, we gave notice to budding authors on the 331/3 (Thirty-Three and a Third) book series opening a call for submissions. At the time, the series creators were looking for original research, for stories in the history of popular music (recent or otherwise) that haven’t been told too often (if at all), and for perspectives that will broaden and develop the discipline of writing about music. Now, on the cusp of their new publication ready for outing, we're treated to an advance preview of reading material on all things Talking Heads.

 

Fear of Music is author Jonathan Lethem's scripted tome on the Heads' 1979 disc of the same title. While the book totals 160 pages of in-depth literary analysis on the David Byrne-led and Brian Eno-produced album, you can catch up with a 23-page preview, courtesy of the book publishers themselves,

 

Head here to read it, and pre-orders for the book happen via this link. Fear of Music will officially be released on April 26, 2012.
