As fans of girl rock (durr!) we're super excited about the launch of Brit website thegirlsare.com's first ever print issue of TGA, to complement its up-to-the-minute content online. After growing tired of finding music magazines in the 'men's interest' section, Editor Annette Barlow decided to do something about it. And how glad are we that she did? TGA will finally offer a real alternative to the male-dominated music press here in the UK.
And on bucking the publishing trend: Annette is an advocate of print. “If you want up-to-the-minute news, you go online. If you want a beautiful artifact that you’re going to re-read and keep for years, you pick up a magazine. It’s not one versus the other – they serve different purposes”. All hail that *high five*.
The inaugural issue sees LA psych foursome Warpaint on the cover, with Kim Gordon, Micachu, Sky Larkin, Theesatisfaction, Lady Leshurr, Vuvuvultures and many more. Get in quick and pre-order issue one via the website for £6 - or round it up to a tenner and get this limited edition tote bag illustrated by Holly Dinsdale.
