Featured: New Issue of Arthur!


Arthur #34

Twenty-four 15" x 22.75" pages (16 color, 8 b/w)

Now with 50% more pages, Arthur continues its comeback in the bold new broadsheet newspaper format that's turning heads and drawing critical acclaim.

In this issue...
After 20-plus years navigating strange, inspiring trips across myriad underground psychedelic terrains with a host of fellow free folk, righteous musician/head MATT VALENTINE (MV & EE, Tower Recordings, etc) finally spills all possible beans in an unprecedented, career-summarizing, ridiculously footnoted epic interview by BYRON COLEY. Plus: Deep archival photo finds from the MV vaults, a sidebar wander through some important MV listening experiences with your guide Dan Ireton, and a gorgeous cover painting by ARIK ROPER of MV & EE at peace in the cosmic wild. Delicious!
