Up Against the Wall!

From editor Phil:

Issue # 2 of UP AGAINST THE WALL is now live.

Featuring:

* SENTIMENTAL AIRLINES With his eponymous solo album, Psychedelic Furs front man Richard Butler has made one of the best CDs of the year. Philip Nutman talks to the painter/songwriter/singer and ‘80s icon and reviews this must-have record.

* VERB Daren Wang wants to change the way you think about literary magazines. He tells Al Kaufman how.

* DAN BERN IS TAKING A DEEP BREATH. After an exhausting campaign against GW Bush, the musician is taking it slow and remembering to breathe, as he explains to Al Kaufman.

*UATW’S DISC(S) OF THE MONTH: DR. WHO

Guest critic and renowned Whovian Shawn Carter explains why BBC America’s DVD set of the Christopher Eccelston season of the venerable British TV series is something you really should watch – especially if you saw the edited, commercial-interrupted broadcasts on the Sci-Fi Channel earlier this year.

* UATW’S MOVIE OF THE MONTH: LASSIE

Yes, Lassie, as in the legendary Collie. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest cinema (that’s if the film’s playing in your town) to catch one of the year’s most delightful family films, a treat for children of all ages in this day of clich├ęd computer animation. And don’t forget the Kleenex. Woof! Philip Nutman wipes his eyes...

Plus MUSIC: Arctic Monkeys, Goldfrapp, Mott The Hoople and Kris Kristofferson.

DVDs: THE MANSON FAMILY, TRILIOGY OF TERROR, THE LOSERS, WEREWOLVES ON WHEELS and the women in prison flicks BARE BEHIND BARS and AMAZON JAIL. Meanwhile Justin Griffin gets all warm and fuzzy with MVD’s PORNSTAR PETS.

And a whole lot more...
