Authors seek anthologizement while we are dancing

While all these authors gather in Chicago for the gladitorial cage matches to see whose work will be selected for an exciting anthology, here, we are dancing. Tinariwen's CD, Amassakoul, will get you out your chair and moving. Reading their website it looks like the group have a pretty strange history that merits some further research. Track 1 goes straight onto the next mix tape.

Oh, I have a good article (in an actual print magazine--how old school I am) on them. It got me to pick up a couple of albums.

If I get a chance tomorrow I will try to scan the text and put it up somewhere.

Thanks Chris! Some of this stuff was on their site but this is great. Romanticism? Perhaps. But they're completely right about the guitar. Who knew?
The Evens were on NPR this morning! Nickleback are looking forward to 15 years from now when they'll be on.
