What a way to end this glorious year
Personally, professionally, politically, socially, this year has repeatedly been a shit pie. There’s also been a lot of good, though, and for the magazine it feels like we’re ending 2018 on an upswing. That is thanks to you, our readers, who responded last month to our inevitable we-need-your-money post. In it we echoed the same boring story of the struggling independent press (although for the first time ourselves) and launched a new subscription model where you can support us from £3 per month and receive our next 9 issues in the post. We’ve been too embarrassed to outright ask before, truth be told. Into 2019 we’re keeping the mag free, but if you really like it your 3 quid(s) will protect our independence get L&Q dropping through your front door on a regular basis.
A good place to start is with our final issue of 2018, which goes into stores this coming weekend.
For it, Nilüfer Yanya hosted us in Penzance, a place that’s key to her life and the debut album that she’ll be putting out in early 2019.
In stores Saturday. Available for pre-order here.
Or start that subscription and get it for a little as £3 to wherever you call home.
Thanks for reading this year. From all of us here at L&Q.
Loud And Quiet needs your help
The COVID-19 crisis has cut off our advertising revenue stream, which is how we’ve always funded how we promoted new independent artists.
Now we must ask for your help.
If you enjoy our articles, photography and podcasts, please consider becoming a subscribing member. It works out to just £1 per week, to receive our next 6 issues, our 15-year anniversary zine, access to our digital editions, the L&Q brass pin, exclusive playlists, the L&Q bookmark and loads of other extras.
