The Latest News (December 2003):The final issue of The Broken Face is now available for order. Included are interviews/features on Portland's jazz-folk-drone-indie-improv-whatever ensemble Rollerball, Simon Wickham-Smith's consistently amplified and expanded lexicon of creative music, the Ponys' pop music which is so much about contradictions that we're not even sure it's pop at all, Californian multi-instrumentalist Steven R. Smith, the fog-clad vibrations and aural claustrophobia of Lovely Midget, the untamed beauty of Michael Gira and a deep look into the Finnish underground scene. We also got a chance to visit the frank and humorous, informed and loose world of Pengo, the textural, languid and open landscapes of the Necks, Italian space/psychedelia explorer Dario Antonetti and Texan Crevice's mysterious and atmospheric drones. Add to all this a 1998-2003 wrap up, about 200 reviews and you've got yourself another issue fully packed with fascinating music.
