Issue 122: Make Noise
For this year’s very special Make Noise! issue (a.k.a. the Music Technology issue), The Bug leads the pack (with MCs Flow Dan and Warrior Queen in tow), then we get techy with Gang Gang Dance and crown princes of the house scene The Martinez Brothers, dip into the studios of four of indie rock’s finest engineer-producers, tackle the usual videogames and music-making gear in our Machines section, and also get some great tips from Tittsworth and Jake One. It’s a noisemaker, for sure!
