There’s a new magazine out (here in the UK). It’s called Word and it’s about books and music and videos and popular culture in general. It may be of particular interest to certain LJ users (hi Zoo_music_girl, hi Zotz) because it has interviews with Nick Cave (he’s on the cover) and John Peel. I haven’t read much of it yet, but it looks pretty good, despite the unfortunate Microsoft-application-name-overlap
Its kind of exciting to get issue one of something; it’s a long time since I did anything like that.
In a bit of a newsagent spree, I also bought the NME, which I used to get religiously, but haven’t done so for a few years now. This week’s comes with a free CD of NME Awards nominees, which is pretty good. Slightly strangely, it closes with The Clash’s ‘Complete Control’. So I now have that on CD, as well as 7″ black vinyl picture sleeve. Ha!
