The Record Shop in the Tottenham Community Press

The Record Shop is an initiative in Tottenham aiming to give a platform to local youths who want to record their own music.

It's a wee studio which enables people to waltz in off the street and into a record booth which is a pretty vibes creation especially in these ends where opportunities like this are few and far between.

We quizzed Mary from the initiative for the latest issue of the Tottenham Community Press.

Bright lights, big city

Spring was big. It always is. But this year particularly so. Here are some things we saw, we heard and inserted into our gobs. Delicious...

Lost Map Records on Soho Radio

Just before we fucked off for far away climes, we did a Soho Radio show as M magazine with Lost Map Records.

Lost Map, for those not in the know, is an indie label located on the remote Isle of Eigg and run by Pictish Trail. We had Lost Map artists Rozi Plain and Manuela in over the two hour show that was something of a shambles when it came to chat and links. Hopefully this was more endearing than hateful although it is hard to say as I'm too scared to listen back. Some highlights were continually pronouncing 'Rozi' as 'Rosie' and Rosie also booting a hole in the studio desk. Ouch. Listen back below if you dare...

An interview with his highness, Julian Cope

Months off are few and far between if not none existent now we're all kinda fully fledged grown ups . But we've just come back off one with our kid and it was totally mega. So it's time for a 'catch up'...

While we were away, wheels continued rolling, one of which was this interview with former Teardrop Explode Julian Cope dropping on the internet. A little like a lead balloon as no one really noticed but whatever, this was one of the best half hours ever with a dude who has lived a life totally unhinged.

From heavy LSD consumption to an intense love for old stones, to dressing like, as he says, 'Odin's biker', Copey has done pretty much everything while keeping the tuneage heavy and uniquely him. His latest LP, Drunken Songs, is just that, a collection of ditties about getting back on the sauce. What a hero! Click the link and dig into a chinwag with the number one arch druid...
