A big belated thanks to the mighty John Eden
for sending me a copy of Woofah
#3 a few weeks ago. It seemed kinda daft bigging this up in the run-up to Christmas when everyone was preoccupied w/ the Kollapse of Kapitalism and assorted family shit - but now that the New Year Madness has receded to a vague Lee Perry-like shimmer of analogue echo it seems an appropriate moment to reiterate that this mag is essential reading if you have any interest in Reggae, Dancehall, Dub, Grime, Dubstep or UK Urban Bass music of any shape and shade. The contributor list - which occasionally even includes yrs truly - is a veritable who's-who of UK music writers, bloggers, 'experts' and (more importantly) fans
...it's a helluva lot of fun, as well as being informative and illuminating. Hats off to everyone who put their time and effort into producing this - Droid has really excelled himself on the layout and design front. There's some cool visual contributions from Woebot
, and oodles of pieces incl. a lovely interview with Flow Dan
by Tom Lea
It's cheap as chips innit, so credit-crunch aside, there's really no excuse for not buying this. The last couple issues have pretty much sold out - and I mean that in the sales sense, not the sociopolitical one, maaaaan
- so hoof on over to their site and snag yerself a copy now, kids!
But, whatever you do - don't buy a copy off this man
if you see him lurking outside FWD. He's the Flash Harry of Dubstep.
