Title: Special Interest #10 - delayed
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on December 15, 2013, 06:43:50 PM
As probably expected due silence, SI#10 is delayed quite a lot. Will be done! Things have been started. Few interviews ready, several agreed to be made. Reviews been written, but a lot of work to be done.

Needless to say, all volunteer .. ehm.. "journalist", feel free to get in touch!

any updates on this?

i would be willing to write about the american scene if you ever did stuff on it.  im active in the midwest area.



im a huge fan of your "ny skandinavisk industri" but i would prefer to read about it than write.  i feel like an outsider but i want to know more.  been following the scenes in finland, sweden, denmark, etc for 4 or 5 years now and i just seem to relate to it and click with it more than most of the music being made in the US

There was article about the new american power electronics/industrial noise scene couple issues back.

SI #10 -- still slowly progressing. Some obstacles here taking all time, but of course magazine WILL come!

I guess about 5 interviews ready, but more is needed and some needs little editing.
When SI started, idea was to make small zines frequently, with level of quality & content that it won't build pressure for next... then came #6... then came #9... and now it seem like #10 must be something much more than #9, not just small rag with couple interviews :P

What's the status of #10 at the moment? Very much looking forward to it!

With little luck, SI#10 should see finally daylight in end of year!
What happened with all delays, you can simply sum it with: life.

I decided to reject idea of making #10 somehow "special" issue, and aim to just get out the standard 52 pages so can move on to get also #11 done without this long delays!

That's good news. I was a bit worried if this was the end of SI.

Originally, when SI started, idea was to keep zine small. 52/A5 pages. Something what could be thrown together without any pressure. Since that was what always killed magazines before. Every 'zine I made, there slowly grew idea to make it better. That is bigger, more stuff. Original template was the idea to prevent such thing happen.

Well, it worked for 5 issues. Then #6 got bigger. #8 got new type binding and #9 finally way thicker. Could #10 be smaller... with less stuff? With less interviews/features? For couple years I though of course not. There's no point making magazine that people will say it ain't as good as before, hehe....    Now, reading all the very "relaxed" little fanzines.. New Forces, Fördämning, Shock Tilt and such, I simply remember that it shouldn't be more than: what it is.

I'll wrap things together and move on for further issues. Anyone into being contributor, doing interviews etc, feel free to contact so #11 won't be this long wait.

As I've mostly read through all those other great zines which came out in the last couple months/years ( e.g. Troubled Sleep, Noise Receptor Journals, Fördamning, Arise, Neons/Shocktilt zine etc.), I'm really looking forward to a new SI zine!
Is there already a release date in sight for Nr. 10?

Big thanks for all the other zine makers, I appreciate your work a lot!

Hope the next issue does materialise, I recently picked up #9 and it is exactly the sort of journal I have been looking for.

Not sure if you know of it, but my own Noise Receptor Journal covers the same broad scenes as covered by Special Interests. More details on the current issue available here: http://noisereceptor.bigcartel.com/product/1-x-copy-of-noise-receptor-journal-issue-no-4

This is third, and hopefully final attempt to finalize magazine. Lay-out with new program looks promising and I hope to finalize magazine during december and have it published in January 2018.
Ad rates and information will be posted soon!
