9781623568900 is the ISBN number of the book due out February 13, 2014, that I wrote about Aphex Twin’s 1994 album Selected Ambient Works Volume II for the 33 1/3 series. It also feels like the number of days since I posted regularly at Disquiet.com, but I am slowly digging myself out of post-book exhaustion and gearing up to get back at it. Also gearing up for next-book planning, a key part of which is factoring in a diminished exhaustion component. Here’s another number: the book with be the 90th in the 33 1/3 series.
Pictured above is a “sampler galley” of the next six books due out from 33 1/3. I have a spare copy, which will be given away as part of a contest in the next issue of the Disquiet.com email newsletter, which you can subscribe to at tinyletter.com/disquiet. Also included are segments of forthcoming books by Serge Gainsbourg, They Might Be Giants, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Andrew W.K., and Gang of Four.
