Intellect Books to publish Iain Ellis’ next book

iain-ellisMusic historian Iain Ellis is a gent we see out and about around Lawrence on a fairly regular basis, and he’s a hell of a nice guy. In addition, we’re big fans of his writing here in the Nuthouse – both of his work for Popmatters, as well as his book Rebels Wit Attitude, a history and analysis of humor in American rock music.

I interviewed Ellis back in 2008 regarding the publication, and have been eagerly awaiting the follow-up ever since he officially announced its completion over a year ago.

Well, Ellis announced this morning via his Facebook page that Intellect Books has agreed to publish Brit Wits: A History of British Rock Humor. Hooray! We’ll have more details regarding publishing dates and so forth when we get ’em.
