1, the Wire article states the title as COMPENDIUM not COPEDIUM (which sounds both neat and boring).
2, if this is some nice big hefty volume, could it not include a reprint of KRAUTROCKSAMPLER?
(3, leather? really? Rather outre for a veggie, non?)
1. It's Copendium (but I'm not surprised some spellchecker would change it to Compendium, probably the same one that changed deicide to decide)
2. I'm not holding my breath about it containing all of KRS, but it could very well contain bits of it, or reworked version of certain chapters. I'm guessing it's mostly compiled from his writings on this site and in certain magazines.
3. Maybe it's some special kind of vegan leather and I'd make a joke here but risk the wrath of the vegan debate.
