I’ve not had a chance to write about the Red Bull Music Academy events, or their daily newspaper which is an omission on my part.
I was too knackered to make the now legendary 4 way soundclash between DMZ, Trojan, Soul To Soul and Metalheadz at the Roundhouse last week, but is sounded wicked. Check Laurent’s write up and the only-to-be-expected disagreements in the comments.
The most recent Daily Note includes a nice piece on fanzines which mentions Woofah and says it has: “consistently proved that informed, considered and informative journalism continues to exist outside the internet and mainstream monthly music titles”
Which is the sort of thing which makes it all worthwhile! One for the Woofah Love page I think!
Previous issues of the Daily Note have included a two part piece by Melissa Bradshaw on the history of UK Soundsystem, Dan Hancox on the cops and grime, a cool Weatherall interview and a series of pieces on different areas of London, including Hackney. It’s all available for download as pdfs on the RBMA site.
