From editor Phil:
Issue # 2 of UP AGAINST THE WALL is now live.
* 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.
*UATWS DISC(S) OF THE MONTH: DR. WHO
Guest critic and renowned Whovian Shawn Carter explains why BBC Americas 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.
* UATWS MOVIE OF THE MONTH: LASSIE
Yes, Lassie, as in the legendary Collie. Run, dont walk, to your nearest cinema (thats if the films playing in your town) to catch one of the years most delightful family films, a treat for children of all ages in this day of clichéd computer animation. And dont forget the Kleenex. Woof! Philip Nutman wipes his eyes...
