There have already been hints, and if you’re one of the few hundred who’ve visited here already you’ll know that there’s a new issue about to surface. To be published on the 11th October comes our spanking double issue.
Now those of you who’ve been paying attention for a while know that spanking double issues come with gifts, and this time we have one hell of a gift. Our good friend RICHARD WARREN is about to release his new album THE WAYFARER, and it’s an absolute corker. What’s more having recorded it he’s made a whole separate ‘stripped-down’ mix of it and given it to us. And we’ve stuck copies of it on the cover of this new issue.
Plus we’ve really gone to town on features, filled more pages, and bought in a couple of new young Turks (possibly stretching veracity there a little). So not only do we have features on Richard but also:
THE BASEBALL PROJECT, PHIL OCHS, MATT PIUCCI, DAN STUART & THE SLUMMERS, BAND OF OUTSIDERS, THE FLAMIN’ GROOVIES, MADAM, DOG AGE, JASON MCNIFF, JON LANGFORD, PAUL COLLINS, THE HOT KNIVES,and DENNIS DIKEN of THE SMITHEREENS
Not to mention a few wacky little pieces on other folk, and the strangest set of reviews you’ll have seen for a while.
The mag will be available hither and yon but if you visit our shop you can order it now straight from us and be sure of getting it sent to you as soon as it’s published.
A shop? That sounds hubristic, and yes today you’ll only be able to buy the new issue, but shortly you’ll find any array of back issues for sale heading all the way back as far as BoB#4. We’ve gradually pulled together all the various stocks of back issues, where necessary repurchasing, and now we want to get them back out in the world.
You’ll also find quite a bit of content starting to appear here. Reviews, interviews, stuff. This will take over from the old weblog with a view to combining in the medium term with bucketfullofbrains.com. I love that little website but man it doesn’t do very much (and that’s certainly no reflection on our pal Didier who updates it now and then). So keep a watching brief on here for a while and if you like what you see subscribe. We ain’t techies, hell we persist in doing this print magazine, but you may well be pleasantly surprised.
