We’re launching a live podcast series inspired by our award-dodging Sweet 16 column

Come and see TT (Theresa Wayman), Joe Mount (Metronomy), Joe Talbot (Idles) and Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) revisit their teenage selves

We’ve all been 16, unless you haven’t yet, in which case, you lucky bastard… mostly.

It’s a mad time that inspired our Sweet 16 column, where musicians look back at how they navigated that odd, mercurial age.

In April we’re launching a brand new live podcast series of Sweet 16, where we’ll be recording 4 episodes in front of a live audience at London’s Sound Gallery.

Tickets are FREE for each of the below evenings, where our musical guests will reminisce about what is was to be 16, via personal stories and some of the music that they were listening to back then. Each event will be recorded and released as a podcast the following month.

To get your ticket, simply click on the episodes below.

Wednesday 11 April – TT (Theresa Wayman from Warpaint) – SOLD OUT
Monday 23 April – Joseph Mount (Metronomy) – TICKETS
Friday 27 April – Joe Talbot (Idles) – TICKETS
Monday 30 April – Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) – TICKETS

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.
