Crazy-ass Blurt Mag's 1st of 2 Covers


We just couldn’t help


By Blurt Staff


Around the time you’re reading this the Fall 2009 issue of
BLURT is hitting newsstands and mailboxes. As a special treat, and a strategic
move designed to utterly confuse harried newsstand and bookstore clerks
arranging magazines on their shelves, we decided to present the magazine with
alternate covers. On the main front cover, Sonic Youth; on the rear, Regina
Spektor. (Readers are encouraged to write in and let us know which they like


As outlined in our free bi-weekly email newsletter (going
out today, in fact – sign up for it elsewhere on our homepage), this second
print edition of Blurt – counting our
digital-only issues, the 7th overall – features, in addition to
Sonic Youth and Spektor, Iggy Pop, Prefuse 73, Patterson Hood (of the Drive-By
Truckers), Mandy Moore, Wye Oak, Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey, Rodriguez, King
Khan & the Shrines, country cult artist Larry Jon Wilson, the return of
punk legends Flipper, porn queen Sasha Grey – and why the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame has finally become completely irrelevant. There’s also a special fashion
section with profiles and retro-themed photos of a slew of musical femme fatales, among them Spektor, Maria
Taylor, Rye Rye and Metric’s Emily Haines.


Obviously we’re proud of the magazine, but we sincerely hope
that it offers a wealth of musical comfort food for everyone – maybe even some
quality summertime on-the-beach reading, to boot. We also offer subscriptions to Blurt so you don’t miss an issue.
