October issue of Brum Notes Magazine out now

It’s a brand new month and that means a brand new Brum Notes Magazine. The October 2012 edition is now hitting the streets of Birmingham and beyond and it’s jam-packed with the best new bands and most exciting artists hitting the Midlands over the coming weeks.

This month also marks our third anniversary, coming three years to the day since the very first edition of Brum Notes Magazine first landed.

Mercury prize favourites Alt-J adorn the cover of this month’s edition and tell us how wowing the crowds means more than winning over judges.

Old favourites Bloc Party talk about how their three year hiatus has reinvigorated their sound, while great Brum hopes Peace reflect on their record deal and reception to their exceptional debut EP.

Potty mouthed noise rockers Blacklisters share their love of bouncy balls while psych-Krautrock newcomers Toy tell us why they’re so much better than Joe Lean & The Jing Jang Jong (ok, they don’t exactly say that, but they are, aren’t they?).

October isn’t all about touring bands either, and if you thought festival season was over then think again. We’ll take you through the highlights of 10 years of Supersonic Festival as one of the world’s most adventurous music showcases returns to Birmingham. Plus, feast your eyes on our step-by-step guide to the OxjamBrum Takeover Festival including our handy souvenir map to lead you around the various venues involved in this month’s extravaganza.

We’re not the only ones celebrating our third birthday this month, über cool club night FACE has also reached that grand old age and we caught up with the men behind it to spill the beans on where it all began and what’s in store.

With gigs galore this month, you’ll need something to wear, so luckily our autumn style guide will point you in the right direction, while you can plan your diary with our comprehensive what’s on listings for October. Plus, you’ll find the usual mix of news and reviews, including a special look at the latest instalment of the Moseley Folk Festival.

Grab your free copy from your favourite hotspots across the West Midlands or read your copy online here.

Come say hello over on Facebook while you’re doing it too. Plus, if you haven’t finished reading last month’s Student Special or want to have a browse through our back catalogue, then don’t forget you can read all our back issues here.
