This month I have mostly been preoccupied with various family matters, including a divorce (funtimes!), being kicked out of my home (my landlord decided to sell up) and watching the spellbinding glory of the Tour de France.
I’m moving very soon, and after that full service will resume, I promise.
In the meantime, here is a sneaky-peaky of what’s coming up in issue #5 of (what is possibly) your most favouritest, esoteric viola-related zine:
— Sexy interviews, tbc
— RIP Billy Bang, pictured, & Kenny Baker
— Punk rock viola outreach: a self-help guide for when you are musically lost, alone and have no-one to turn to
— Scratch orchestras and their importance in fucking up the noise-sound-music hierarchy
— Fun art/music happenings and musical mischief that you can try at home!
— Experimental viola technique field notes: what does happen if you use a piece of metal instead of a bow and other irresponsible tales
— A *full colour* cover (ooooh! aaaaaah!)
That’s all from me folks. In the meantime, my Etsy store remains fully stocked and fully functional: every time someone buys a zine, what little remains of Rupert Murdoch’s soul dies a little bit more. So keep supporting independent media, it’s needed now more than ever.
