Spreading the word

Congratulations to SWSL associate Skif, whose music fanzine Vanity Project has been bigged up in the pages of NME. The latest issue, #12, is available now for free online and, if you prefer, in paper form - details on the website - and includes, amongst other things:

Interviews: Jeffrey Lewis, Misty's Big Adventure, Chloe Poems

Features: John Peel obituary

Album reviews: The 5, 6, 7, 8s, Ballboy, The Fall, The Knife, Misty's Big Adventure, Patrick Wolf, The Rocks, Twinkie, The Would-Be-Goods

Single reviews: Babyshambles, Elliott Smith, Help She Can't Swim, The Knife, Tokyo Dragons, X Is Loaded

Gig reviews: The Cardiacs, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Winnebago Deal, Polysics, Sujfan Stevens, The Finn Brothers

Incidentally, Skif now has his own blog too. Hobo Tread can be found in the sidebar, and can be expected to cover such subjects as music, fanzine writing and travel, often in pursuit of lower league football - despite being marooned in Liverpool, he's a keen follower of Havant & Waterlooville FC.
