Gasp! Choke!
Read post

Gasp! Choke! Dissed in Indieshite at last! I have no choice but to join Western Homes in forced retirement. Goodbye, cruel web.

Read post

I’d not come across fakejazz.com before – maybe it’s out of the ‘online zineblog loop’ (or maybe, more likely, I am), but I like it a good deal. The writing doesn’t always flow but the people involved always make a[…]

Via everywhere, but specifically
Read post

Via everywhere, but specifically kempa, the art for the new Radiohead album. It looks like a 15 year old’s cover for his sci-fi fanzine. It’s Cthulhoid, cheap and horrible. I really rather like it.[…]
