Here’s all that new Roland stuff in one place, even accordions

It was called “909 day.” It was on the ninth of September. And it included a new 909 product. So far, so good. But Roland’s 909 day stops making sense around there. It launched over 30 products, many of them unrelated, over 24 hours. “909 Day” saw new … accordions. Also, record players that said 909 on them. There were four continents, and a marathon Web stream that would have taken 24 hours to watch, sometimes switching between Japanese and English. In years of covering this business, I’ve neve...

The origin of accordion love?

Over the weekend I got to see my most favoritest band perform in Burlington, VT – They Might Be Giants. I have loved them forever (well, since 1988 anyway). Best.music.ever. I started thinking about the connection between my affinity for accordion books and the fact that one of the TMBG band members plays an accordion. Perhaps the band had some magical influence on my journey into book arts? [Author: Elissa]
