Unsigned Magazine

What a great idea - produce a magazine based around unsigned bands and include a 15 track CD of examples of the bands you are talking about. Perfect, you get reviews, interviews, and the music.

It seems to be very Stoke-based and around Psychophonic Records. I had no idea that Stoke had a music scene (ignoramus that I am) - but don't worry The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster are interviewed as well so something for everyone.

The CD centres around hardcore/goth/punk which I normally like in small doses. The thing is I am really enjoying this CD in the same way as I enjoyed the Dance To The Radio compilation CD last year. There are less punky tracks such as a magnificent contribution by Faustus - but this is an energy guitar-fest you don't want to miss.

I have also found the least politically correct band of the decade - Lesbian Bed Death. The pictures from the mag show a man with long hair and shades applying a cane to a Goth girl in chains. The music is good and has lyrics such as

Goth girls are easy
Dark lips
Big tits

And the cane is called Dave...

Psychophonic Records
