AAN Writers Featured in “Best Music Writing 2001”

Six alternative press music writers in collection

Six of the 27 articles in “Da Capo Best Music Writing 2001,” published this month, were originally published in AAN-member papers.

This year’s editor, Nick Hornby (“High Fidelity”), calls the collection “a dip full of good stuff.”

“This book is hopefully not about music at all, but about what makes us human,” says Hornby, a novelist and music writer for The New Yorker.

The six alternative newsweekly writers whose work appears in the collection are:

Richard Meltzer, “Third Spud from the Sun: Cameron Crowe Then and Now,” San Diego Reader

Monica Kendrick, “This Wreckage Was No Accident: The Complete Fun House Sessions,” Chicago Reader.

Gilbert Garcia, “The Tao of Esteban,” Phoenix New Times

Carly Carioli, “Napster Nation,” Boston Phoenix

Metal Mike Saunders, “Disney Dreams Up the Best Radio Station in 30 Years,” The Village Voice

Mike Doughty, “I Like It Warm and Fuzzy,” New York Press

Kendrick’s piece was part of her winning entry in the music criticism category in this year’s Alternative Newsweekly Awards contest.
