Sweet 16 with Joe Mount from Metronomy

Skate videos, fudge shops and Battle of the Bands

When Joe Mount recalls his 16-year-old self he remembers a guy who was “pretty great”. It certainly sounded like he was having a great time – growing up in Totnes, Devon he founded the local skate park with his mates, worked in a fudge shop and drummed in his first band The Upsides – who should have gone onto great things. Metronomy did instead.

Recorded in front of a live audience at the Erased Tapes Sound Gallery, London, on 23 April 2018, this is the second episode of our Sweet 16 podcast – inspired by our column of the same name.

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.
