The excellent Largehearted Boy has published Dean Wareham's "Book Notes" for Black Postcards; "where authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published books."

Being a memoir by a musician, my book, Black Postcards, does cover a lot of musical ground, beginning with early memories like "Georgy Girl" by the Seekers, ranging through disco, punk, new wave, the paisley underground, shoegazers, a long list of band names from Dogzilla to When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water to I Love You But I Have Chosen Darkness. Here are a few songs that informed my book.
