9780143115489: Black Postcards: A Memoir

A bewitching memoir about the lures, torments, and rewards of making and performing music in the indie rock world

Dean Wareham's seminal bands Galaxie 500 and Luna have long been adored by a devoted cult following and extolled by rock critics. Now he brings us the blunt, heartbreaking, and wickedly charismatic account of his personal journey through the music world-the artistry and the hustle, the effortless success and the high living, as well as the bitter pills and self-inflicted wounds. It captures, unsparingly, what has happened to the entire ecosystem of popular music over a time of radical change, when categories such as "indie" and "alternative" meant nothing to those creating the music, but everything to the major labels willing to pay for it. Black Postcards is a must-have for Wareham's many fans, anyone who has ever been in a band, or the listeners who have taken an interest in the indie rock scene over the last twenty years.

About the Author:

Dean Wareham is a New Zealand musician and actor and the founder of the bands Galaxie 500, which he left in 1991, and Luna, which was re-formed in 2015. He is also a film composer, most notably composing the soundtrack to Noah Baumbach’s The Squid and the Whale. In 2008 he published a memoir about his years in indie rock, entitled Black Postcards.

Review:

"Here is both a personal history and a cultural history. For years, Dean Wareham has made music of beguiling intimacy that draws you into mysteries, dreams and romances. Now he has written a captivating book that does the same." -- Joe Levy, Executive Editor, "Rolling Stone" "Dean Wareham has already given the world some of the greatest music of the last many years, and now he offers us this-part blueprint of the creative process, part punk rock field guide, part map of America, part dreamscape of despair, part song." -Nick Flynn, author of "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City" "I have always been a fan of Dean Wareham and have worked with him and Luna many times. I love reading the thoughts of frontmen. I think it's a great read for the fan of adventure." - Lou Reed
