‘TRAPPED, AND MADE TO EAT CAT FOOD!’ Bristol’s LICE step inside one of those ‘real life’ magazines for their new video

Spectres, Oliver Wilde, even Big Jeff - half of Bristol's music scene make a cameo

About six weeks ago we wrote about the new track shared by Bristol band LICE – ‘Human Parasite’.

We liked it, so we sent our writer Katie Beswick and her dog to the west country to speak to the band (>>> interview).

Now they’ve roped in a bunch of their mates to make a new video for ‘Human Parasite’ directed by James Hankins. You’ll be able to spot Spectres, Oliver Wilde, Scalping, The Narwhals and, local gig-going celebrity, Big Jeff.

For it, they’re trapped inside one of their very own ‘real life’ magazines. You know the kind; the ones which have features about people whose gastric band has exploded or the person whose grandmother is actually their sister. Fine publications.

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.
