Some of the most incisive commentary I ve yet to read on the music of Daniel Johnston, Ed Hall, Grains of Faith, and the interdependencies of artists and audience in Austin, Texas . . . A provocative addition to the short shelf of indispensible books about Austin music. Austin American-Statesman"
Any book that begins with a Reality Sandwich at Austin s famed Hole in the Wall nightclub displays much promise . . . A must-read book for those who with to understand popular music-making in Austin, and others who seek a case study in the complexity of music ethnography. Notes (Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association)"
With two powerful chapters on identity and commodification in the music industry, Shank covers much Austin ground and other pertinent music-scene grounds in general. Interviews abound, and Shank s work on the institutionalization of alternative music in the major media conglomerations helps make Dissonant Identities a must. The Rocket (Seattle, WA)"
