Just got hipped to a new issue of Gerard Cosloy’s CONFLICT magazine, “first in 22 years”. Truly a “formative” magazine in my, uh, musical development and retardation. There was that spring break around 1986 where I borrowed Jackie Ockene’s huge stack of Conflict back issues and read them cover-to-cover at my parents’ house. Never looked back. Indie rock was on.
So I haven’t read Gerard’s latest, but I’m certain the snark will be off the charts, and the musical taste will be superlative. Click here to download Conflict’s first post-Information Superhighway edition.
