tell you this, I got lucky judging music by the cover.
Copper Press, though short and squatty for a magazine,
is pretty on the outside and smart on the inside and
sounds great coming out of the speakers. The CDs triumph
new, independent, obscure, post-rock music. Very post
rock and obscure at times. On the pictures issue (#18)
we get The Kick Ass (Pavement + Rush's Geddy Lee) doing "Catch
on 11"; My favorite "The Planet" (Pavement
+ the Cramps) stuttering and hic-cupping their "Toledo
Vadar". The magazine itself is as a music mag should
be with interviews with the bands and related artists
on the CDs. Let's see, Copper Press is short, sturdy,
smart, tasteful and unassuming. Sounds Canadian to me.
That's a very good thing.
