Also, info on Greenberger's musical activities, including the sorely-missed Men & Volts. (Who are apparently doing a reunion gig in my former stomping grounds, Somerville, MA, in early 2008.)

Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a parkbench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
Silently sharing the same fears

When I was in my late teens in the mid 90's, I came across Ernest Noyes Brookings' work through a fascination with all things Shimmy Disc. This led me to purchasing a bunch of old issues of Duplex Planet from the dollar bin at Sound Exchange in Austin. I wish I still had those.

Thanks for the link. I hadn't though about DP in quite a long time.

You're telling me. I randomly bought an old issue of Murder Can Be Fun on eBay last year and David Greenberger is the guy I bought it from. Small world.

Anyway, he's a super nice guy and I am glad you posted this for us to check out. So thanks.

Just gotta say I used to have (or maybe still have (who can tell with all these books)) the Duplex Planet book and it's marvelous.

There you have it--an endorsement from a guy who nests parentheticals.

Yay Ernie Brookings! I contributed a track years back to one of the Lyrics by Ernest Noyes Brookings compilations, and in fact put the same track on my first release with my old band, Chunk.

Kudos to Greenberger for doing the DP back in the day. Glad to see they're available online now!
