From the publisher: "Esopus 3 includes artists' projects by Andrea Dezsó, Jenny Holzer, and Mark Keffer; a removable poster of 100 frames from Bruce Conner's 1966 film Breakaway (along with artist Doug Aitken's appreciation of the film), photographs of Marcel Duchamp, Franz Kline, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, and others by the late photographer Marvin Lazarus (accompanied by Lazarus' journal entries from the 60s recounting each sitting); a new "Dear Sissy" letter-monologue by playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis; Alex Shear's Object Lesson #3 (foldout poster); an interview with (and bonus musical track from) acclaimed indie-rock band the Wrens, and much more. The theme of the issue's CD is "Product Displacement," for which musicians Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3), Jad Fair (Half Japanese), Scott McCloud (Girls vs. Boys), New York jazz/scat singer Connie MacNamee, and The Baptist Generals, among others, have "embedded" advertising jingles or slogans in original songs."
