Listening Post

Everyone’s at SXSW at the moment but the most exciting thing in our world is three people dressed as hedges

Snapped Ankles are out of their tree

What’s the big news coming out of SXSW? Not sure? Oh, well, who cares because obviously the most important thing is that Snapped Ankles – the London trio, who as you can see above, look like enchanted shrubbery  – have a new track to share.

It’s called ‘I Want My Minutes Back’, and it’s really good.

Apparently they’re now based in east London and have signed to The Leaf Label (appropriate), but we prefer to think that they’ve made this new song and then scurried back up the Mighty Oak they clambered down from.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
