That arbiter of critical-edge musical taste, The Wire, goes up in price to £3.60 an issue (unless you subscribe at a preferential rate) this month. Still a bargain at the price, no matter how modishly irritating it can be from time-to-time. An added incentive this time is a free double CD, number 10 in their sampler series, which features thirty ear lobe sized morsels from a vast array of (obscure and) creative musicians. You'll have heard of David Sylvian (a track from his new album, the first since 'Beehive' in 1999) and Jah Wobble, at least.

October's print fare includes a good feature on 'lost recordings', not least those of Miles Davis. Positively mainstream, eh fellas...?
