Yes, Beard #6 is out!

That's right, the brand new, long awaited Beard #6 has been unleashed! It's been out since late May in fact. I just don't keep this blog updated much now that we have fallen for the evil corporate charms of myspace. Anyway...

Silver Jews
David Berman on poetry, faith and happiness.
Howe Gelb
The Giant Sand major domo on the power of gospel and how Keanu nearly joined the band.

Jeffrey Lewis
The anti-folk comic book hero communes with the Beard.
BMX Bandits
Duglas T Stewart looks back on 20 years of ultra-romantic pop.
Gay Against You
Armed with laptops, a keytar and skimpy gymn shorts, Glasgow noise/pop/breakcore/gabba mentalists bring the ruckus.

Underground comics hero and Spongebob writer sicks it up.

We're at large at all the best festivals - ATP, Green Man, Instal and Triptych - and have been reviewing a plethora of gigs and records.
