Hi there. Here's another progress report regarding my forthcoming Manuel Göttsching book and a few words from a fellow music writer. There are a total of 15 chapters and Stephen Iliffe, who is currently proofreading the text (and is now deep into chapter 12), has this to say: "This is going to be the ideal guide to Manuel's life and music. I've already purchased an additional three albums of his as a result of reading it, which is exactly what a good music book should do, and it has deepened my appreciation of the Manuel Göttsching and Ashra albums that I already own."
Given that Stephen's Hans-Joachim Roedelius biography, Painting with Sound is one of the finest books I have ever read I'm very heartened by his words. I'm also very grateful indeed for his work with the proofing.
I will let you know when this process is complete as we head towards the finish line. Stay tuned.
