Well, I’ve been letting the blog slip by in favor of other work and media but now I’ve got to tell you about the long-awaited book by Eddie Wilson and me, Armadillo World Headquarters: A Memoir, by Eddie Wilson and Jesse Sublett. Some advance copies trickled in from the printer this week, with the first official edition arriving at the end of March 2017.
You’ve probably heard about it, you will definitely be hearing more about it in the near future. This is a landmark in the documentation of Austin music history. Yes, I’m prejudiced in favor of the book–I’m privileged first to be a good friend of Eddie’s and second, to have helped in bring this book into fruition.
PREORDER THE BOOK FROM THREADGILL’S. DO it here. And you’ll be hearing more about stuff soon right here on this blog, including my book on the history of Esther’s Follies, which also happens to have deep roots in 1960s Austin. It looks like an interesting year ahead.
