The Wire
Issue 376

We've always admired The Wire for sometimes giving the cover feature to concepts rather than specific artists: for Issue 376 we get the magazine’s finest exploring music that is produced under ‘other’ names in a series of short pieces. Elsewhere, articles on Eugene Chadbourne,...view item »

The Wire
Issue 370

The notion of musical freedom(s) is the main subject matter of this issue of The Wire: a theme that is carried through all the way to the exploded logo on the cover.
