My Kind Of Sound: The Secret History Of Chicago Music by Steve Krakow (AKA Plastic Crimewave)

with foreword by Jim DeRogatis of NPR’s Sound Opinions (Curbside Splendor Dec 2015)

My Kind of Sound published by Chicago indie press Curbside Splendor compiles more than a decade worth of “The Secret History of Chicago Music,” the illustrated column by Steve Krakow (“Plastic Crimewave”) that has been printed bi-weekly in the Chicago Reader since 2005. Each of the more than 200 columns included in My Kind of Sound were painstakingly constructed by Krakow in his signature scissor-and-glue process, the same he employs in his long-running psychedelic zine, Galactic Zoo Dossier. Charmed though his process may be, Krakow’s gigantic love for music and the people who make it is serious and staggering and the resulting collection is as fun as it is important. Jim DeRogatis of Sound Opinions says it in his foreword: “Those of us who care about the good stuff know what [Krakow] has done, and we love him for it.”
