10,000-copy first printing (and we expect to sell many more)
Akashic is in its 8th printing (over 20,000 copies) of "South of the Pumphouse" by Les Claypool, the lead singer of Primus. This book should sell even better, as it is much more what the average fan would be interested in.
The book has a star-studded cast of interviewees: Tim Alexander, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Matthew Bellamy (Muse), Les Claypool, Stewart Copeland (The Police), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Kirk Hammet (Metallica), Larry Lalonde, Geddy Lee (Rush), Mickey Melchiondo (Ween), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Chad Smith (RHCP), Matt Stone (South Park), Tom Waits, plus many more.
The curation of the book is superb and makes for a fascinating read. It is chock full of information about the band that no one has ever heard.
Photos and artwork will further liven up the pages and be one more major draw for fans of Primus.
