We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
It’s the only place you’ll find full details of every single release ahead of the highlight of the record collecting calendar on Saturday 18 April. Plus there’s a handy map to help you find your nearest of the 237 participating independent record shops and the chance to win £100 of Record Tokens to spend in the shop of your choice.
Inside the regular mag, our cover feature takes an in-depth look back at the heady mid-90s Britpop boom and we round up 40 essential 90s classics to add to your collection. Our features section is bulging at the seams, including interviews with Tame Impala about their new album The Slow Rush, Nadia Reid, Cornershop, Jeffrey Lewis, Jonathan Wilson and Lanterns On The Lake. There’s also a look at the MTV Unplugged series on vinyl, a history of legendary New York label Sire, a guide to buying Brazilian vinyl and our Classic Album is Radiohead’s 1995 monster The Bends.
If all that’s not enough, Long Live Vinyl brings you the most comprehensive range of new album, reissue and hi-fi gear reviews anywhere on the newsstand. Order your copy now, get your highlighter pen out and let the countdown to Record Store Day commence!
