GREETINGS! So here we are. 2014. We’re officially living in the future, people! Lack of hover boards aside, this year is looking to be a BIG one for CALM and we thought we’d
kick it off with an awesome magazine packed full of tip top literary fodder in this AWARD WINNING magazine. Yep, CALMzine was named Publication of the Year at the UK Public Sector Communications Awards at the end of last year, so a huge thanks to all of our writers, photographers, artists and you lovely readers for making CALMzine what it is. We couldn’t do it without you!
In this issue we were lucky enough to grab some time with the legendary Lemonheads front man, Evan Dando who talks about his friend Tarka Cordell and his contribution the brilliant tribute album Tarka & Friends: Life, which also features none other than Lily Allen. Check it out at tarkamusic.com. It’s a beautiful record. We also managed to catch big wave surfer Andrew Cotton between breaks to talk about his record smashing ride last year and what is takes to beat the ocean at it’s own game.
Plus we have article about sexual anxiety (we’ve all been there), the reality of OCD and cover art from the very talented Melissa White. All this alongside our usual crew – Mister Mumbles raids his grandfather’s gramophone collection, Chris Owen lets off some steam in The Rant and Dear Josh offers out his usual dose of irreverent agony uncle medicine.
So, enjoy and let’s make 2014 a CALMzine year, y’all!
