The First Time I Heard:  Joy Division / New Order

Well, at long last the first e-book in the series that Scott Heim has been editing is finished and online. I'm very proud to have been invited to contribute to this anthology, as I'm in the company of some pretty amazing folks.

Scott wrote: "The first one to be released is THE FIRST TIME I HEARD JOY DIVISION / NEW ORDER... it features 45 musicians and writers sharing their memories of their initial experiences with the band(s). The e-book is now available for just 2.99 on Amazon for the Kindle (it will be ready on Barnes & Noble for the Nook later tonight or tomorrow, and the iTunes reader later this month). Soon to follow are similar "First Time I Heard" volumes on Cocteau Twins, David Bowie, The Smiths, and Kate Bush (and then more to follow--REM, My Bloody Valentine, Pixies, Abba, Kraftwerk, Roxy Music, etc--after those).'

'There are lots of amazing folks in this first installment... members of bands like The Wedding Present, Lush, Electrelane, Clan of Xymox, Spiritualized, Lamb, Swervedriver, Guided By Voices, Catherine Wheel, Bedhead, Stereolab, Maps, Film School, B-Movie, Benoit Pioulard, and lots more, plus a host of great novelists/poets... you can see a full list of contributors on the Amazon site.'"  Here it be:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008CEYIRC/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_dp_XRp4pb0H4TY1C
