I don’t get the difference between the website and the magazine.
The website covers music relevant to the entire country. The magazine covers music relevant to Bristol and surrounding areas, be that because an act is based, touring or recording here. It’s a great read wherever you’re from, though.
What kind of music do you cover?
In HMV the music we prefer is usually listed under ‘indie’, ‘acoustic’, ‘pop’ and ‘rock’, though this can be deceiving.
We specifically don’t like lad-rock, faux-Americana bubblegum punk, anything that involves demonstrating testosterone levels, and anything that regurgitates something slightly mundane that was nevertheless bettered by a band who formed circa 2003. We’re not particularly fond of musicians who hide behind their image. If you like innovative music that strives to be original and is not necessarily made by pretty people, welcome to your new home.
Tons of folk. Credit is given where credit is due.
When is the next issue of the magazine out?
We release monthly. Check our Magazine page for information about issue.
How can I contribute to DrunkenWerewolf?
If you’d like to work for us, please email an unpublished review, your CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re based in Bristol or the South West, all the better for it.
I don’t get what Alice does.
Alice Slater was our Assistant Editor. She left and, at the moment, this position remains unfilled.
Why are you called DrunkenWerewolf?
There are several popular theories:
1) Werewolves are defensive and temperamental; even more so when intoxicated.
2) The werewolf myth is derived from a masculine fear of the menstruation cycle. This is particularly fitting, as both Alice and I have ovaries.
3) I got drunk one Halloween and decided it was a good idea.
4) It doesn’t sound as good as “DrunkenWitch” – which if misheard could lead to an unfortunate image, or “DrunkenVampire” – which suggests we spill blood. Werewolves can get pissy sometimes but essentially we’re pacifists.
Have you got anything to do with Twilight?
No, I was born before 1990 and I can read.
With which werewolves do you associate?
Mainly Tony Rivers out of I Was A Teenage Werewolf for his car back flip, the woman out of Dog Soldiers because period pains can be a right pain the arse, and Ginger out of Ginger Snaps because so can little sisters.
How come you bother with a magazine?
It’s nice, I like it. Reading stuff off the screen makes my eyes go fuzzy.
You’ve used my work without my permission. What can I do about it?
