As usual, took us a while to put it together, but it's finally here.
On this new issue we want to shake things up a bit and start some debates, so expect thought-provoking articles focusing on gender identity, featuring writing on the resurgence of the Riot Grrrl movement and the LGBT groups within punk-hardcore. But we're still keeping some travelling adventure to feed your wanderlust, world music exploration and plenty of graphic art and vegan cooking to delight your eyes.
We talk about being gay in the punk-hardcore community and the challenges that feminism faces from a riot grrrls point of view. We go to Nepal to trek the Himalayas, to Cape Verde to track down the influences that originate some of the most prolific roots music circulating around Europe, while also going back to another island: Iceland, a love affair from our previous issue that we now get to expose in its full glory via pictures from a summer round trip. We leave space for opinion and creative writing about how to see past the walls of routine and time constrains, while also questioning the behind-the-scenes of the so called "independent music".
Keeping music in the limelight, we interview bands like Iron, Swain and Karma Sheen, give you some playlist recommendations and ideas on how to turn serious tunes into a reason to get friends together around...a couch?
There's also art with Ash Santos from Vigo, Spain, showcasing his work and an in-depth interview with Fúria ACK, an up and coming street artist and illustrator who has been taking over East London's walls and slowly breaking through the world of art galleries and commissioned work.
And yes, of course there's a release party.
Come and hangout with us on the release event on Friday the 20th of November from 6pm at the Doomed Gallery in Dalston. See a live painting performance by Fúria, a photo and illustration exhibition from artists also featured in the zine, video projections, music, free fruit juice and vegan treats (provided by the lovely people from the Stoke Newington Food Assembly) and of course it’s your chance to get your hands on a fresh copy of The Juice #03!
Pre-order the Fanzine here - there's an option to collect at the party free of charge.
