ALT-MU Magazine - Issue 1 (January 2013)
Wow – it’s finally here! Six months ago ALT-MU Magazine was simply an idea totting about in my little brain. I noticed that most music magazines, or even those offering advice, focused on the frontline; on ‘being famous’ and had a lack of insight into the vast array of people that make the live action possible. I wanted to create a magazine that actually helped musicians or music lovers find sustainable careers in music or the creative industries. We define the term ALT-MU to represent a musician or music lover who has found an alternative way to be successful in music or the creative industries. In this issue Mister Joe Black is our featured ALT-MU and looking ravishing on our cover. To find out more about him check out his interview on page 10. We also catch up with Matt Lucas’ co-managed band, Bitter Ruin (58) and alternative model and ex musician Nina Kate on page 20.
