Hot Press Magazine and Live & Rare CD
A mag (with-a-CD!) I've never seen before! "Printed in Ireland! (I have a "thing" for Ireland). And I didn't even drool on it! Aren't you proud of my high degree of self-control? Admittedly, I had just had a haircut, so I really would not have wanted to mess it up with drool. At least not until tomorrow.
The mag is Hot Press, and it's issued every fortnight. They cover politics, games, film, and other forms of entertainment as well as music. I'm down with that. Franz Ferdinand are on the cover of the current issue, which also includes interviews with Joss Whedon, mastermind of the disappointing movie Serenity and one with Gemma Hayes. There are reviews aplenty as well.
The CD is called "Live & Rare Vol.1 - 13 exclusive tracks from Ireland's favorite acts". It was produced with Jon Richards of Galway Bay FM and includes songs originally aired on his InStudio Sessions program. They also appear on the 39-track double album EmBraces.
The CD is really strong.
