Hot news! Louder Than War celebrates its own label launch at Incubate and Incendiarymag celebrates being 10!
Yes, the two webzines have joined forces to bring a related theme to their curatorship of V39 at the wonderful Incubate festival: “Cultural Cringe”.
V39 will host a number of bands that don’t fit – bands who are old, ugly, uncool and un-rock, ignored acts, nobodies, bands singing in strange languages, and bands who are strangers in their own lands. “Cultural cringe, in cultural studies and social anthropology, is an internalized inferiority complex which causes people in a country to dismiss their own culture as inferior to the cultures of other countries. In many cases, cultural cringe, or an equivalent term, is an accusation made by a fellow-national, who decries the inferiority complex and asserts the merits of the national culture.” (Wikipedia)

Roy Wilkinson (British Sea Power - UK) reads from Do It For Your Mum Saturday 15th - 3pm
Incendiary and Louder Than War will be asking questions about Roy’s and BSP’s inspirations and permanent outsider status. Roy will in his own words, be doing something along the lines of "BOYS TALKING ROCK". Roy says... "This is a phrase that Alan Horne came out with on the one and only time I met up with him for a chat... "Here we are, boys talking rock," he said in arch and amused but also deeply engaged style. Expect a quiz a discussion on the theme of 'Is Rock Dead?', not a moaning, old-git-recalls-endless-summers-of-youth. Rather a structured and researched presentation and talk on this theme, occasionally veering in anecdote and provocation."
