Caught in the Crossfire – Printed Issue #3

Spring brings warm weather, dreams of summer and a new issue of the Caught in the Crossfire broadside.  Topics this year include Robert Curgenven’s epic 2014 LP, Kim Gordon’s memoir and mall record stores circa 2015.  As always, it was published for the WFMU Record Fair with the generous support of Forced Exposure Basketball.

Thanks as always for reading.

Caught in the Crossfire – printed issue #2

As a follow up to 2013’s broadsheet, I published another one in 2014 (again, for the 2014 WFMU Record Fair).  This time around, I wrote about protest in current music and modes of portable music listening.  Artists include The National, Richard Wagner / Jonas Kaufman, Kanye West and Santigold.

If you weren’t able to stop by at my table a the fair, it’s available for download here – if you are partial to simulacra, you can print it out double-sided on a slightly off-white cardstock.

Otherwise, I still have a few left of the original print run for the cost of shipping, if interested please comment here and I will drop you a note via e-mail (your comment will not be made public unless you desire)

Many thanks to Forced Exposure for their continued sponsorship / moral support and those who spared a kind word or two.  The next issue will be published for the 2015 WFMU Record Fair in May.
