Spine Magazine

Spine Magazine – you are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge…

I don’t think we’ve linked to Spine before, which is a shame because it’s a good zine. It’s nice to see UK writers looking at hip hop from an independent UK perspective rather than following the American opinions on things. It seems such an easy thing to do but the proportion of sites that cover hip hop with the “This is the big thing in the US right now” attitude is staggering. Especially worthy of investigation are the article on DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist’s phenomenal Brainfreeze CD and the interview with Tanya‘s mate Kid Koala.

To be totally honest, anyone who had thirty-six pairs of Nike Air Max Plus, arranged in colour order would get a link from me. NYLPM was launched as a pop culture blog rather than a pop blog, and as a man sporting a new pair of box-fresh trainers, I can officially state that it’s been sadly lacking in trainer-based content thus far.
