The Wire, NME, Clash, Subbacultcha!, Uncut and Johnny Ramone's autobiography.

NME has a serious question this week: is Sonic Youth the most influential band ever? It's been 30 years since their debut EP and the last tour is over, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon are divorced and there seems to be no future for the band that influenced Kurt Cobain. NME investigates the past and looks at the future of the four idividual band members.
Also interviews with Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast, live reviews on Blouse and Paul Weller. Reviews for Graham Coxon's new record, The Futureheads and Willis Earl Beal.

The Wire comes with Tapper 28, a free CD with 20 tracks by artists such as Baconhead, Tonesucker and Waves on Canvas. Next to that adventurous CD there are some good interviews inside with Sun Araw and Charles Gayle. And of course lots and lots of record reviews. Order Now

Clash Magazine asks Shirley Manson from Garbage how she would spend her last day. Then there's a  nice interview with Sleigh Bells on the making of their second album. And as usual Clash magazine tips the hippest and coolest bands around. Order Now


Subbacultcha! has an "uncomfortable" interview with Xiu Xiu's Jamie Steward about his new record.
Also in this issue Teen Daze, contemporary American poetry, a review on Lanthimos' new movie Alps and the usual reviews and concerts lists. The best independent music magazine comes from Amsterdam and is available for free here at our shop!

More music: Uncut has a free CD with Jack White from the White Stripes covering his favourite songs, there's an Uncut collectors special about R.E.M., and we have Johnny Ramone's autobiography Commando in stock that just came out this month (order now).
