What can we say about Issue Eleven? Well, we think it is our best issue so far! Why? Because it is what our first ten issues were leading up to!
Issue Eleven's cover stars are Liverpool legends The Sums, whom we interview and review their brand new album 'Better'. We also interview the nineties best kept secrets Animals That Swim; hardcore punk stalwarts The Varukers; Manchester's politically charged punk band Four Candles and the brilliant new Manchester punk band The Sentence.
Elsewhere, we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Oasis' era-defining 'Definitely Maybe' with a MASSIVE feature, which also includes The Real People and many other key people who helped Oasis to become the biggest band in the world and review the new Liam Gallagher documentary film 'As It Was'.
We also review 'Assume the Position', the debut EP by chaos theory noise merchants Strip Search Tramp, who feature Eighth Day Magazine Issue Five cover star Mr. Dibs (ex-Hawkwind and also now of Evil Blizzard) and Issue Nine ('The Anarchy Issue') interviewee Tracey Starzynska of Thee Acid Tongue. Meanwhile, our man in Plymouth, Paul Foden reports from the launch party for punk four-piece Butt Plug Babies' debut album 'Going in Dry', reviews both the gig and the album and interviews the band.
And unbelievably, that still isn't all! Frenchy joins us for another rant, this month about the goings on in the Hawkwind camp; we investigate just what the heck is going on with the Bernard Manning of pop Morrissey and the Bard of Barking, singer / songwriter and activist Billy Bragg airs his views on the subject. We also have news of the debut album (and accompanying launch party) by Brighton's Scare Taxi, featuring former These Animal Men (interviewed in Issue Seven) frontman Boag and former Skurt member Tara Guitara. PLUS, we also have a HUGE feature about Toxic Productions' brand new charity CD in aid of Streetlife and CRISIS, 'Kids on the Street', featuring some of the biggest names in the punk world.
You can find all this and much more in Eighth Day Magazine Issue Eleven! Our best issue so far? You decide!
