About the Author

Dennis Callaci was born in Corona, California and has bounced around Southern California his entire life. He has issued hundreds of recordings over the last three decades on his record label Shrimper, noted for bringing forth the earliest recordings from Amps For Christ, Woods, Franklin Bruno, Lou Barlow's Sentridoh, The Mountain Goats, and a myriad of others. He is in the band Refrigerator, who have released thirteen records over those thirty years as well as a plethora of solo recordings of his own. Callaci's first book, 100 Cassettes was issued by Pelekinesis in 2020 followed by a book of short stories on Bamboo Dart Press in 2021, Five Ghost Stories. He can currently be heard on his radio show with cohort Bill Chen on KSPC weekly.


"Callaci conjures a mix of fiction and trivia and memoir and secret code, and when I say "I wish I'd written it myself" I mean that I wish I thought I could have, or even knew exactly how it works."
- Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Feral Detective

"This book could be your life."
- Ira Kaplan, Yo La Tengo

"This collection conjures up times and places that are achingly personal and bends them towards the universal."
- Allen Callaci, author of Heart Like a Starfish

"In 100 Cassettes, music and whatever else there is to life try to drive through Dennis Callaci's brain, and continually get stuck in its fascinating detours and rest stops. Who knows which parts are fact and which are fiction, but it's definitely all true."
- Marc Masters, Washington Post, author of No Wave
