We at YIKIS never had a dream to begin this drain of horrible reviews, and we certainly had no intention to publish it as a book. But to piss of the established world of literature, we lowered our shields and objections and teamed up with SP-AM to publish a book. You might have heard about them, these old fashioned items can be found in libraries and even in some homes, they consists of paper with (In this specific case) printed words and pictures on it.
It is not just a book; it’s a floppy book. It contains all the YIKIS floppy disk reviews from 2012 to now (and the nearby future!), but also interviews with inspiring floppy people (Sascha Muller, Neil Jennings from Diskette Etikette records, Graham Boosey from Wrieuw records, Andy W. , the mysterious person behind Floppy Kick records) and indeed more floppy fun. It’s pretty much a novelty. And if we weren’t so biased; I would have said that this is pretty much ‘a must have’ for the floppy underground artist, floppy disk fans, floppy fanatics and anyone else who is interested in music released on floppy diskette.
Here is a fair word from our publisher:
DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS! Seriously, just don’t do it. This book is full of poor grammar, highly irregular spelling, and pointless descriptions of terrible music on an outdated medium. If you DO know what this is then OMG do I have the PERFECT book for you! This is the book you have been WISHING to find in your local book store!
For the record, YIKIS is not going commercial, we will not earn a single penny on this book. It all goes to Babylon company Amazon who prints it in good quality and makes sure it gets delivered to wherever you want them to deliver it too (which is a thing we unreliable idiots couldn’t do in a billion years!) and the coins that will be left will go to the ramen noodles of our publisher (he needs to eat those ramen noodles: badly!) so don’t buy it to support, but do get it because you love to have something passionately insane pressed on paper like this floppy review book. You have to agree, its pretty nuts.
Just the sheer amount of floppy disk artists mentioned in this book will be enough reason to fall of your chair, and secretly we hope that this publication will be a reward for their hard work, and will perhaps stimulate others to use the floppy diskette as their future physical music/media format. Who can resist the cuteness and size limitations of these floppies? Forget the over expensive vinyl, this is the real thing!
Or in this case, it’s a book about the contents on those ‘real things’…
It took me a while to track down all the names of artists who (without their floppy music) this book would probably be a bit empty. Thank you:

Get a precious copy of the book over at the link at the bottom, or if you are allergic to paper (which sucks!) there is also a digital kindle version… Which will be kind of useless when you are reading the book on the toilet and you ran out of toilet paper.. So uhm better get the paper version over here:
Thank you for your support, music, and insane mentalism!
