Only 2 months or so since the last issue, so it feels like 1996. Plans for some upcoming stuff too. The times have changed & the energy is starting to flow again after nearly five years of static with occasional rare transmissions. Thank you all for the love, it means a lot to me. I'd say us, but everyone knows there is no us.
We have a lot going on this issue. An interview with Jessica Bailiff primarily about her new album. An interview with Tara Vanflower about both her writing & musical careers. An interview with Nathan Norman the guitarist & back-up vocalist of Devo 2.0. A new interview with Alan Sparhawk about his recent solo guitar album. What I believe to be the first ever interview with Todd Vandenberg who records under the name Heller Mason. A brand new interview with our favorite record store owner Kimber Lanning about the state of the music industry & how it reflects america at large. A couple short stories by Tara Vanflower called 2:22 & Murder Suicide. An essay on why my name fits me called My Name is Brian. A translation of an excerpt from a letter by Ernesto Guevara (better known as Che) called The Transformation of Ernesto. Plus more of i heart fx with Jim DeJong (Infant Cycle), Bill Horist, Michael & Jennifer Seman (Shiny Around the Edges), Alan Sparhawk, & Jessica Bailiff.
I hope you guys like it. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks for your interest & support.
