Listening Post

These guys called Thunder Jackson sent us an email with this track a while ago – we’ve been playing it ever since

A really good pop song, basically

Without sounding like a knobhead – knobhead! – we get sent quite a bit of new music every day.

A while back, some people we’d never heard of called Thunder Jackson sent us an email with the subject line ‘what exactly is a Thunder Jackson?’ and then sort of answered their own question by explaining that they’re two guys; one from Cardiff the other from Oklahoma, who met by chance during a shared cab ride in California. A couple of years on they make music together.

They included a link to this track ‘Guilty Party’. Right now, that’s all we’ve heard, but it’s good.

They’ve also posted a phone number on their social media, it also appears at the end of the video – (310) 486-7882. Let us know who picks up when you call…

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 our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and 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 works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

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.
