TQ18 lifts the bar even further and has to be one of the best issues yet (although I am prone to repeating myself with each new issue)

The feature article is all about the packaging of physical releases and the unique forms this can take.

We review;

·         Releases from Cyanide Tooth, One Way Song, Roman Nose, and 20 other releases
·         The final gig in the series of 8 Koan gigs in Newcastle, England

We chat with;

·         Zoviet France about the unique packaging of their output
·         The curators of Bloxham Tapes about their wonderful imprint

With this issue of the zine, and while stocks last, subscribers get a free copy of a label sampler from the Bloxham Tapes, and Star Dots and the ‘New’ Junk imprints which has been specially prepared for TQ.

In addition, subscribers get a free download of a track from Sheer Zed, that has never previously been made publically available.

Dig in – and enjoy your Christmas. See you next year.
