Punknews Interview Editor Ben Conoley has announced the upcoming publication of Food Not Songs. The cook book is to be published in 2010 by Suburban Home Records and will feature favorite recipes, food-related anecdotes and hometown dining secrets from dozens of bands and musicians. Says Conoley,

Rather than attempting to write the great American novel, I thought it would be more interesting and delicious to combine my love of writing, food, and music. Plus, now I'll have something to talk about with Jamie Oliver, should we ever meet. Virgil Dickerson from Suburban Home loves food as well, so it only made sense to work on it with the folks over there.

Contributing bands include Less Than Jake, Andrew W.K., Silverstein, Converge, Fake Problems, American Steel, Mustard Plug, Shook Ones and more.

Beginning in August, Punknews will be running a weekly series of recipes leading up to the publication of the book. Submissions from bands are still being accepted. Interested parties can inquire by emailing ben (at) punknews (dot) org.
