Issue 17 of Rough Trade Magazine is FULL of incredible stuff – regardless of whether you’re into music or not (but you are though, right?). Our Album of the Month is Earl Grey, the debut album from north-London band, Girl Ray. In this issue the band – Poppy, Iris and Sophie – are interviewed about the record, forming the band, leaving school, and break-up songs.
Elsewhere we have the story of World Circuit Records written by label owner Nick Gold, an interview with Rhode Island’s finest political punk band Downtown Boys, an interview with Lizzy Goodman about her spectacular naughties oral history book Meet Me In the Bathroom, a horoscope by Avey Tare, and a photographic trip down memory lane with The Districts.
What’s not to love?? Get it while you can. Happy August.
