Industry Reviews

"[The Secret History of Chicago Music] is an education even for us know-it-all music obsessives, and are the only comics that have sent me directly to the record store to dig in the bins for dusty gems." --Jessica Hopper, Pitchfork, author of The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic "The Secret History of Chicago Music has developed into an important study of the obscure blues, jazz, rock, funk, soul, folk, R&B, and punk musicians from Chicago's rich and diverse musical history." --Museum of Contemporary Art "[The Secret History of Chicago Music] is an education even for us know-it-all music obsessives, and are the only comics that have sent me directly to the record store to dig in the bins for dusty gems." --Jessica Hopper, Pitchfork, author of The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic "The Secret History of Chicago Music has developed into an important study of the obscure blues, jazz, rock, funk, soul, folk, R&B, and punk musicians from Chicago's rich and diverse musical history." --Museum of Contemporary Art -[The Secret History of Chicago Music] is an education even for us know-it-all music obsessives, and are the only comics that have sent me directly to the record store to dig in the bins for dusty gems.- --Jessica Hopper, Pitchfork, author of The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic -The Secret History of Chicago Music has developed into an important study of the obscure blues, jazz, rock, funk, soul, folk, R&B, and punk musicians from Chicago's rich and diverse musical history.- --Museum of Contemporary Art "["The Secret History of Chicago Music"] is an education even for us know-it-all music obsessives, and are the only comics that have sent me directly to the record store to dig in the bins for dusty gems." Jessica Hopper, Pitchfork, author of "The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic" "The Secret History of Chicago Music has developed into an important study of the obscure blues, jazz, rock, funk, soul, folk, R&B, and punk musicians from Chicago s rich and diverse musical history." Museum of Contemporary Art " "The seventh issue of Steve Krakow aka Plastic Crimewave's lovingly and laboriously assembled psychedelic/punk rock/outsider music fanzine is crammed with the usual assortment of cult groups, dusted down recorded artifacts and other oddities from the underground music scene, past and present . . . "GZD "has a distinct style that separates it from lesser, more orthodox publications, one of which possess the same manic streak of imagination and love of detail that Krakow packs into his project.""The Wire, "for "Galactic Zoo Dossier "#7 "
