Well, today may very well be your lucky day. Thanks to our friends over at Headpress Publishing, we just so happen to have a copy of Jennifer Wallis‘s excellent power electronics compendium, Fight Your Own War, available to ship to one of our readers free of charge. As our contributor Thomas Boettner wrote ever so eloquently in his extensive review, “a book focused almost exclusively on the genre can be seen as a nod towards recognition of influence for a style that is frequently both misunderstood and miscategorized as a loose cabal of angry white men. More importantly, this provides an opportunity for legitimization—not necessarily to the wider pop cultural zeitgeist, but at least for those who tend to look down on power electronics as low-brow shock art. By utilizing a diverse array of contributors, editor Jennifer Wallis has compiled a collection of scene reports, regional histories, loose philosophies, and select release reviews, all with the aim of fleshing out the question of power electronics.”
We just want one thing from you: Tell us who your favorite power electronics artist is, either presently or historically, alive or dead, and why in the comments section below. And, if you’d be so kind, follow Headpress Publishing on Facebook, and us as well if you haven’t yet. They’re doing good work. Don’t cop out and leave a lazy answer: We’ll be choosing the winner based on the top five answers, then randomly from those five.
