One day, when they write the Please Kill Me of post-9/11 Brooklyn, they could probably fill a lot of pages with stories about or involving Zachary Lipez and his band Freshkills.  Having already released two albums full of Jesus Lizard meets DC punk catharsis, the band is getting ready to release their third full length.  But the band may have to take a backseat to the lead singer’s writing career, as he readies his collaboration with Yeah Yeah Yeah’s guitarist Nick Zinner and book designer Stacey Wakefield.  Take Me off the Guest List (Akashic) showcases Zinner’s already-famous photography, and Lipez’s essays, which are a cross between Rimbaud and Down and Out in Paris and London, except set in 21st century Williamsburg.
