Stamped and Numbered to 400 Copies. Seminal illustrated music-magazine, documenting an historic new episode in underground and avant-garde music taking place in Bristol. Pairing in-depth interviews with mesmerising original artwork, this inaugural issue features projects ranging from post-punk behemoths IDLES to improvised industrial techno duo Giant Swan; from feather-ruffling DIY label Howling Owl Records to 11-member experimental music coterie The Young Echo Collective. Exploring a close-knit community of fiercely DIY artists and labels, criminally overlooked by the mainstream music press, it is a historic piece of artistic propaganda, through which you will discover a wealth of exciting new and experimental music. Yea, it enlightens the masses and pierces the great malaise, in which our people wander desperate and uninspired. Claim your copy, friends, and stand with the enlightened.
