Couple more bits of reading material for you

Posted: June 4th, 2002, by Marceline Smith

FREE reading material at that! First up the London listings guide Probemusic has had to give up the big newspaper style and is now an A3 folded glossy leaflet thing. It’s no bad thing though as now it’s easier to read and none of that inky fingers trauma. It’s still got the usual London gig listings, recent live and record reviews and unsigned artist spotlight and this issue here is even better than usual as it has excerpts of an interview with Mr Steve Albini [the full interview is here]. Well worth picking up if you’re out and about in London or send a cheque for £4 to Probe Magazine Ltd, 1st Floor, 94 Ermine Road, London, SE13 7JR and they’ll post you out the next twelve issues.

Also of some interest is IF e-zine. They’ll send it straight to your inbox every month so you barely have to lift a finger and you’ll get news, articles, interviews and reviews of gigs, records and demos. You can read past issues here and also sign up to receive the new issues.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.
