    When I saw a copy of "My Kind of Sound" on display at a coffee shop in Chicago, I made a mental note to borrow it on interlibrary loan. I think that Chicago has a rich musical history and I was interested in reading a book about it. This is not exactly that book. Instead, "My Kind of Sound" is a collection of one-page bios of artists (with drawings of them) by Steve Krakow. These originally appeared in the Chicago Reader over the course of the past 10 years.

Instead, "My Kind of Sound" is a collection of one-page bios of artists (with drawings of them) by Steve Krakow. These originally appeared in the Chicago Reader over the course of the past 10 years. There is a lot of good information here and I did learn a bit. However, it is not the chronological narrative that I was hoping to read. Like reading the inner sleeve of a garage rock compilation LP, the bands all start to blend together after a bit. Still, I made some notes and will hopefully be able to find some new music thanks to this resource.

    Lotsa bands I've never heard about, and a few I know well. Some are secret. It says so in the title. I'm going to start a band and call it Five Rickey Hendersons.
