LUC SANTE on 'Crawdaddy' magazine. Debut publication of often hilarious and always droll memoirs by STUART MOXHAM (Young Marble Giants, Gist, solo, etc). Murat Cem Mengüç' dramatic tale of when SUN RA and the Arkestra visited Istanbul, Turkey in 1990. The fantastic and true story of electro-pop pioneer, runway model, and Eve Babitz-ish character ANN STEEL, which has never fully been told before now. In conversation with comedy guru TOM SCHARPLING in advance of the publication of his moving and hilarious new autobio. Archival interview by Steve Lafreniere with 'Honeymoon Killers' star SHIRLEY STOLER. Overviews of new music from DAVID NANCE, PATRICIA BRENNAN, and PHAROAH SANDERS with FLOATING POINTS. We're so enamored with the Floating Points/Sanders collaboration that we had no less than Andy Beta go off on it at length, for what is our first "real" record review (as we're a quarterly, that's not something we'll do too often but the stars aligned.)

- Breathtakingly beautiful new abstract paintings from Detroit's KATHY LEISEN.
- Amazing sequential art by John Vasquez Mejias, Steve Krakow (his top ten songs by THE FALL), Marc Bell, and Nathaniel Russell.
- AK DWANG CHIL's shamanistic Korean trad-pop by Jay Ruttenberg.
- Stunning photographs of downtown NYC musicians from the 1980s and early 1990s by Shimmy-Disc's house photographer MICHAEL MACIOCE.
- An amazing, lengthy conversation between 'BLUE' GENE TYRANNY (RIP) and PETER GORDON conducted by no less than NED SUBLETTE on their groundbreaking minimal-pop masterwork 'Trust in Rock’!
- The story behind the computer paper-printed lyric sheets you could send away for in the early 1970s by the BLUE ÖYSTER CULT!
- The punk kids who figured out how to make truly awesome VEGAN JERKY.
