ONE of my favorite indie rock musicians — a member of Galaxie 500, Luna, and Dean & Britta — has endorsed my upcoming book. Here’s what he says:
I read Scott Timberg’s pieces every week without fail. It’s great to see his book Culture Crash debunk the mumbo jumbo about the long tail, file-sharing, free information, and positive thinking — and take a hard look at what it all means for artists, musicians, critics and teachers.
Dean is also a substantial writer himself, and I don’t just mean songs like “Tiger Lily” and “Lost in Space.” His Black Postcards: A Memoir is the best musician’s-eye-view of the alternative and indie-rock movement. Proud to have such a longtime hero of mine on board.
