The 33 1/3 latest novella is Meat is Murder by Joe Pernice (of Pernice Brothers) and is available for FREE from audible. All you have to do is log-in...and I assure you that you don't have to purchase anything!
If you don't already know the 33 1/3 is a series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music.
Here's an excerpt:
"A Catholic high school near Boston in 1985. A time of suicides, gymnasium humiliations, smoking for beginners, asthma attacks, and incendiary teenage infatuations. Infatuations with a girl (Allison), with a band (The Smiths) and with an album, Meat Is Murder that was so raw, so vivid, and so melodic you could cling to it like a lifeboat in a storm."
