Vinyl shopping with Julia Jacklin – Bands Buy Records episode 05

We gave the Australian songwriter 25 quid to splash on Christina Aguilera's music

Growing up in the Blue Mountains, a a couple of hours outside of Sydney, there wasn’t an awful lot in the way of record shopping options for Julia Jacklin.

She had what she describes as her Christina Aguilera-phase before digging through her dad’s music collection and discovering the likes of The Velvet Underground.

So she was pretty pleased when on a recent trip to London we took her to Ra Ra Rok Records in Camden, gave her £25 and asked her to buy a minimum of three pieces of vinyl for the latest episode of Bands Buy Records.

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.
