Jimothy Lacoste is on the cover of Loud And Quiet 129 – out this weekend

Looking like a million pounds

Update: Read the digital version here. Or order a physical copy for home delivery.

For this month’s issue of the magazine Gemma Samways went shopping with Jimothy Lacoste down Bond Street. If you think you’ve already got an idea about Jimothy’s cash situation, like some people do, him ducking into Gucci and Burberry will hardly change your mind. But it turns out that Jimothy isn’t a rich kid – only his friends are. And he doesn’t like it when people only like his music because they think it’s a joke, either. Read the full (fun) story behind Jimothy’s fashion and life choices in Loud And Quiet 129, in stores from Saturday.

Also for this issue Dominic Haley spoke with the remaining Beastie Boys about 3 relationships that made them (one is with Madonna), Daniel Dylan Wray remembers Charles Bradley a year after his death, and reluctant grime pioneer Ghetts talks about turning his life around with Mike Vinti.

The rest is all new stuff – Philly rapper Sammus, London duo Jockstrap, Nottingham experimental drum duo Rattle, Canadian techno musician Marie Davidson and Newcastle metal band Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs, Pigs.

Riz Ahmed also remembers what it was to be a British Asian teenager in 1998.

We’ll deliver it straight to your door if you choose to order a copy or subscribe here.

The digital version will be up from Saturday too, when the mag will be going into stores across the whole country.

However you choose to read it, we appreciate your time and support.

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.
