F**k The Radio, We've Got Apple Juice

What happens when getting played on Radio 1 isn't the goal anymore? What if music is really just about music? A few years ago, Little Fish were signed to a major label and recorded an album in LA. They've toured with some big names (last year Debbie Harry saw them supporting Courtney Love and asked them to join Blondie for a UK tour, for instance) and played all over the world. But earlier this year, they did the opposite of what the traditional rock n' roll myth says you should do: they came home again. They left their label, set up a recording studio in an Oxford bungalow, and started doing the things that made them happy, instead of the things they thought they should do to get played on Radio 1. They sent hand-letter-pressed cards to their fans, held raffles in the middle of their gigs, and played acoustic sets at local open mic nights. Independence has raised a lot of questions for Little Fish. Why do we make music? What do people want from bands? How do you create a community? How can we make a living? What is a living? Joined by friend and writer Miranda Ward, who quit her job to follow them on their adventure, they plan to explore these questions, even if they never find answers, and to tell the stories about being in a band that you don't get to hear in NME. F**k the Radio is a book about Little Fish, but it's also a book about making it work, making your own way, and making stuff - music, comics, t-shirts, fishy paper squares, stickers, badges, vinyl, stop-motion animations, even books. And fresh apple juice. It's about declaring your independence and rewriting the myths you live by.

Fantasy Short Stories: Boris Superhalk

Boris Superhalk The best of Fantasy Short Stories In a modest bungalow on the edge of a forest, lived a rather poor moose who went by the name of Boris Superhalk. The small bungalow he called home was not filled with odd bits and pieces as one might expect of a moose with such a name, nor was it a stylish bungalow where important people came to meet. It was a simple bungalow with a large veranda in front where Boris regularly spent his afternoons relaxing, listening to the relaxing sounds of the forest which surrounded him. It was nothing fancy, but Boris Superhalk did not need anything fancy, he just needed somewhere he could call home. A place with a kitchen for him to cook amazing meals day after day, a warm bed to sleep in at night and a roof over his head for those rainy days. Boris really couldn't ask for much more. He absolutely loved living his peaceful life in his little bungalow. Life had not always been so simple and easy going for him, but he had turned that around! He now lived off the land, he had a garden in his back yard and he ate a plethora of veggies he grew himself. There was no need to be bothered by anyone, ever again. Especially not those godforsaken gremlins! At one point, Boris thought they would never leave him be. They always needed something and for some reason, he was always their go-to moose. Boris had finally had enough after the last excursion that he took with the gremlins. They were always getting him into some crazy, near death type of experience! He just couldn't take it anymore, he was no longer the young moose he had once been. When Boris had been a young moose, fresh out of the academy, he had been up for any adventure, ready to take on any task presented to him, but now in his later years, he only wanted to live the simple life a moose was meant to live. He no longer really craved adventure, he was happy to just cook up a storm in his kitchen and then eat his spoils while sitting on his welcoming veranda. The sounds of the forest were suddenly drowned out by the sound of a very familiar, shrill voice, 'Boris! Boris Superhalk!' it called out and Boris knew who it was before she even walked around the bungalow. the adventure has began..

2 WOMEN, 14 DAYS. THE GOAL? ACHIEVE BOLD FACE STATUS SIGHTINGS: Spotted last night at a giant bash at Nobu: fashionista cuties Karen Robinovitz and Melissa De La Cruz. Karen was heard saying she's 'still exhausted” from her recent Bungalow 8 birthday party that would have made P. Diddy jealous. Apparently, she was wearing two million dollars' worth of Harry Winston diamonds (including the 22-carat ring Whoopie Goldberg wore to the Oscars) and was constantly shadowed by a bodyguard named Lou who was straight out of a Scorsese film. Melissa, also fatigued from the fast track, just hosted an intimate dinner party at a swanky Upper East Side restaurant attended by trend-setting journos from New York magazine, The Observer, Allure, 'Page Six” as well as the indefatigable Michael Musto-and as part of the gift bag giveaway, the whole crew is being flown to Miami to stay at a five-star resort favored by the likes of Will Smith. Asked how they managed to go from barely-known freelance writers to A-list celebrities in just fourteen days, they coyly spilled the beans: Marie Claire called with the assignment, and they simply begged, clawed, cried, borrowed, cheated, lied, stole, and bribed their way to fame. Their how-to tips to stardom include 'Pick an M&M color to hate, and stick to it.” And they're writing a book, daaahlings, so whether you live in New York or Nebraska, you too can have the goods to claim your own fame and become legendary.

They're flying me across the country to fight a hag. They think to reason with. But I know to fight. An iron town is dying. Inside a fibro bungalow in a horizon-wide mirage Belle Furphy is watching from her kitchen window while her town is dismantled around her and trucked south. Ignoring the Dreamtime and spurning the Multinational and vowing to die here where she long ago dug the ashes of her family into the rock of the land, she's becoming the island they say no man is. Flying in from the east coast is her estranged son Jack with his Sunset Village brochures: snapshots of happy deaths on ergonomic beds with palliative carers hovering angelically overhead. Out the front of her house in airconditioned site-vans housewreckers play poker and read letters from her happily relocated neighbours at her through a megaphone. And they wait -for her resolve to give; or for her heart to give. Or for word finally to come through that, at last, nobody is watching . . .
