DESTROYING YOURSELF IS TOO ACCESSIBLE /
MASCULINE DRUGS

by Zach Hill and Holy Smokes

Zach Hill (pummeling-secret-robot drummer for Sacramento noise-rock heroes Hella, Nervous Cop, Team Sleep, etc.) steps out on his own with Zach Hill & Holy Smokes and delivers an album & book combination for the Next-Next Millennium. Teaming up with a variety of friends and cohorts (including Carson McWhitter from The Advantage and Rob Crow from Pinback), Hill and his band present MASCULINE DRUGS, a hailstorm of a full-length album with thunder claps and lightning snaps that ups the ante from Zach’s past skill flaunting and certainly pushes the young mindblower to the front of the noise-maker pack. Includes an equally confounding perfect-bound storybook written and illustrated by Hill titled DESTROYING YOURSELF IS TOO ACCESSIBLE.

Perfect-Bound Book 144 pgs w/ full-length CD

STAND UP, ERNIE BAXTER: YOU'RE DEAD
A novel by Adam Voith (with comic illustrations by Mike Lowery)

"This modest, streamlined story illustrates why TNI ought to be considered one of the more vital independent presses in the country... A great little book from one of the more interesting writers out there."  --Sponic
{ more info }

The body of Ernie Baxter was just buried in the frozen earth of an Indiana winter, but Ernie's story is far from over. From beyond the pale, this newcomer to the heavenly scene observes the folks left down below - notably, his mother and onetime girlfriend, Kyra - grieving his unexpected death. Kyra's husband Dain, a phony redneck with a trust-fund and a snowplow, wonders what the fuss is about. This unique novel mixes crisply written prose with the deft comic illustrations of underground artist Mike Lowery (four full chapters done as comics!), delivering a witty and transcendental story of the legacy one man hoped to leave behind, and the twisted myth that actually remains.

All orders get a free Baxter bookmark! Want the book signed by Adam? Just say so in the "Special Instructions" section of the online order form!

"BASEBALL IS JUST BASEBALL"
 The Understated Ichiro
 An unauthorized collection compiled by David Shields

“David Shields’s sense of postmodern irony is so advanced that I can’t be sure whether he’s serious."
  --Robert Lipyste, The New York Times
"An ethereal joy unto itself."  --Flak
{ reviews & excerpts }

Seattle's favorite right-fielder and miracle-maker, Ichiro Suzuki, in his own words! "Nearly every day [Ichiro is] quoted in the paper saying something wonderfully unhyperbolic, sane, funny, intelligent, modest, anti-hype," Shields says. "I'm gathering these quotes into a little wisdom-book." This collection was compiled during Ichiro's rookie year, the Seattle Mariner's record-breaking 2001 season.

BRIDGES WITH SPIRIT
A collection by Adam Voith

"I hate when book critics use the word 'crackling.' What is 'crackling,' anyway? I'm not sure, but 'Bridges With Spirit' just might be 'crackling,' in a punk rock ennui way."  --Rocket Fuel
{ reviews & excerpt }

Voith's first book opens in Pennsylvania at a Beatles concert in 1960-something and ends with a cross-country trip to the optimism of the second gold rush in California. A collection of tiny rock shows and rare records, best friend's funerals, skipped classes, girlfriends dumping their boys, and imaginary superhero friends.

Book 150 pgs
Price: $8.00
