What They Say

What people are saying about TQ

“Notable new publications include Andy Wood’s TQ. Andy played a blinder here by creating a regular, substantial paper zine and promoting it via that fancy social media that everyone uses nowadays. With only half-a-dozen issues published he already has a bunch of great contributors and (over) a hundred subscribers. More power to him”

Rob Hayler (Radio Free Midwich) review of 2017

“Andy should be super proud of TQ zine, mind you I had total confidence in him. It was clear from meeting him that he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of music, open ears, and a tremendous energy – you can’t fail with that formula”

Joe Murray aka Posset

“The zine is enthusiastic and the descriptive writing is a pleasure to read”

Lauraine Sinclair/ subscriber

“A DIY zine by one of the most passionate experimental music fans I know”

Davy Reed/ subscriber 

"Congratulations on TQ, one of the highlights of 2017"
Dr A Reed/ subscriber

“A great read, with the benefit of one voice, and the sense that we are tapping into the muso-head of a devotee of good sounds”
Nigel Pownceby/ subscriber

“An excellent resource for those of us into the less standard, non-formularised areas of music/sound” -
Ade Hodges, Experimental Electronic musician

"I finally subscribed to TQ and i got my first issue yesterday. It is superb. Everything a fanzine style music mag should be. Hats off!"
Kieran Mahon - subscriber

"It's a great read and I'm glad to get to know even more underground noise / experimental musics, plus all the gig reports, since I'm never going to see any of these in Greece. I especially dig the bigger pieces, like the This Heat live story, and the Blyth interview."

Chrysovalantis Kampragkos - subscriber from Greece

"Just wanted to say massive thank you for your splendiferous review of ‘I hear you’! Always nice to get positive feedback for all the sweat and tears, and all the more special when it’s from from someone like yourself, who knows what they’re talking about, and who listens to a wide range of music. The zine was a most enjoyable read :-)) "

Kassia Flux - musician and subscriber

"One thing I really appreciate about TQ Zine, aside from how great it is as a publication, is how it has brought together networks that I relate to, people around Newcastle, Teesside, and the improvising scene in London, for example. That's a great strength"

John Bowers - member of Tonesucker and subscriber

"TQ Zine has raised the profile of underground music (with or without an audience) in the UK, and has introduced me to some extraordinary sounds."

Richard Sanderson. Subscriber and Curator of Linear Obsessional Recordings label

“An excellent fanzine for a real reflection on what is going on in the UK experimental underground. Recommended”
