So, you read our recent review of Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music by S. Alexander Reed and, like many others, said to yourself, “Damn, now that sounds interesting! I have to have it.” Then you went to sleep that evening and promptly forgot about the whole thing. That’s okay, you can be forgiven.
You may also have another chance to own a copy without ever having to drop a dime for it. The good folks over at Oxford University Press were kind enough to supply us with a giveaway copy of Assimilate, and it could be yours. All you have to do is “like” us on Facebook here and, since this is a critical history, tell us in a comment on this article what you think the single biggest problem facing industrial music today is and, more importantly, why. The winner will be chosen on February 7th, contacted privately, and announced in a comment here.
Even if you don’t win, however, we’d still encourage you to purchase a copy as the book is still very much in print and available. This 376-page tome is rich with information on industrial music and would be a solid reference for any fan of the genre.
