SALE! How To Wreck A Nice Beach SALE!

If the capital letters and exclamation points didn't give it away - we're having a sale! How To Wreck A Nice Beach: The Vocoder From WWII to Hip-Hop, Dave Tompkins' extensive and awesome history of the Vocoder, will heretofore be on sale at saki for a mere $23! That's $12 off the list price for those of you without calculators. Come and get it while we've still got it.



Here are a couple of blurbs I copy and pasted from the internet:



"No one knows more about the vocoder than Dave Tompkins, not even the dude who invented it. [A]n awesome book about the vocoder and its cultural impact… read it immediately."
—The Fader



"It’s unquestionably brilliant, not only one of the best music books of the year, but also one of the best music books ever written."
—Los Angeles Times



“How to Wreck a Nice Beach is much more than a labor of love: It’s an intergalactic vision quest fueled by several thousand gallons of high-octane spiritual-intellectual lust. Outside of, say, William Vollmann, it’s hard to think of an author so ravished by his subject... A hallucinatory stew of Rimbaud, Tom Wolfe, Lester Bangs, and Bootsy Collins.”
—New York




Don't forget, Avey Tare's solo new solo LP Down There is still on sale for $15.50!
