Tales from the riverbank
Earlier this year Baxter Dury had me round to his flat on the River Thames – the home that he’d grown up in, where his father, Ian Dury, would generally upset the neighbours. Baxter now lives there once again with his son Cosmo.
It was a hot day so we decided to record this episode of Midnight Chats on the balcony on the river, watching the cars cross Hammersmith Bridge and posh people row on the water. It was the most idyllic setting for all 60 of our episodes so far, and not even talk of Face Off or suicide could ruin that.
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.
