Intro / Outro

Feature: Freddy Logan and The Three Out — The Three Out were an Australian jazz trio who released two albums during the 1960s. While pianist Mike Nock and drummer Chris Karan are well known among jazz fans, not much has been written about Freddy. Making this the most extensive biography of him yet.

Interview: Oksana Linde — Buh Records have released the debut album from Oksana Linde, originally recorded between 1983–89. From her home in Venezuela, we exchanged emails earlier this year about the album and her career, which was unfortunately overshadowed by the ongoing war in Ukraine where her parents were born.

Interview: Luis Alvarado — The founder of Buh Records discusses Oksana Linde’s new album and his label which he runs in Peru.

Interview: Bunyip Trax — After hearing one of their LPs by chance, I reached out to Bunyip Trax’s Christopher L Ghill to find out more about his label who specialise in ambience and noise.

Interview: Garden Seat — Jaxon Bailey-Banks invited me to chat with himself and Zeb Olsen about their lo-fi label Garden Seat, their event space Static Open, and some of the bands he’s listening to.

Interview: Nicole Willis — Nicole was part of Repercussions, a group from New York who released two albums in the 1990s. After Repercussions, and many collaborations and solo endeavours, Nicole is now working in film production. She shared memories of her early days in New York, releasing a record on Mo’Wax, and what she’s been up to lately.

Interview: Rich Thair — Following a European tour in support of the latest Red Snapper album, Rich chatted with me about his early days in Sweatmouth and some unreleased Mo’ Wax recordings.

Interview: Parsley Sound — After releasing their debut album right when their label Mo’ Wax was closing down, the duo of Parsley Sound released a second album before moving on to other projects. With the release of their latest collaboration as Shelton Street Orchestra, they granted me a career spanning interview.

Reviews — So much music, so little time. Here’s some of what was listened to while putting together this issue. Also reviewed, books on Medway bands The Delmonas and Thee Headcoatees, hip hop photographed in France, and an Australian jazz tour that brought out the worst from the land down under.
