You may have noticed that the issue 3 of our bi-monthly fanzine, An Antidote To Indifference, has yet to make it’s appearance and is now somewhat late. Guest editor Mathew Clayton has put together a cracking issue but due to his commitments to the Port Eliot Festival (of which he’s a director) copy got delivered later than the publication date.
With the following issue set to go on sale on 21 April (Record Store Day, it’s a ‘music special’) we have made the decision to sit on Mathew’s until June. Most of the content isn’t time sensitive but the bits that are we’ll post today (after the jump) and tomorrow.
