Goodreads, a social networking site for book nerds, interviews Dean Wareham about his outstanding indie rock memoir, Black Postcards.
I can’t say enough good things about the book. (Read my review of the book at Largehearted Boy.) Pick it up if you have any interest in the last 20 years of music.
In the interview, Wareham talks about the music that he listened to while writing the book:
I generally wrote in silence, but if I did allow myself to listen to music it was instrumental stuff (so as not to be distracted by lyrics)…Beethoven, Vince Guaraldi, George Delerue, Ennio Morricone…
Ragdoll has been asking her readers for recommendations for music to listen to while writing. What do you listen to that helps your creativity? I’ve been trying to sell Ragdoll on Wareham’s band Luna, so I’ll add this for your listening pleasure:
