We have set up a specific blog for Off the Record which will kick off this coming Wednesday at 25yearsofstreetpress.com. For your convenience, here's the first post:
Off the Record has been compiled from articles originally published in Australian street press from 1986 to 2010. It contains interviews with no less than 95 artists: Australian and international, some at the top of their game, others somewhere else entirely. Many of the articles were published only once on the week of issue and have otherwise remained under dust until now.
So who made the final cut? Who of the thousands of artists interviewed over the years were interesting enough to make it back into print. It’s already our most frequently asked question, although usually in the form of:
‘So is [insert favourite band] in it? Huh?’
We could just post a list of the artists, but that would be boring. Instead we’ll reveal each artist individually and with visual aids.
Starting Wednesday 21st July, a video clip will appear on the blog featuring the first artist. Every day after that we will post another video until the book’s release.
Keep your eyes on 25yearsofstreetpress.com for updates all the way to October.
