Meshing with Your Head

Mesh Count magazine low res

I was just lamenting the loss of some record stores along a stretch of Brooklyn with some friends of mine… Holy Cow on 9th Street, Sound Track on 7th Ave…. Somethin’ Else on 5th, which closed last year to the sound of a thousand chirping internet connections. The scenery is always changing in the city, but the loss of a music store always seems to hit me in the gut because they are the underdogs and champions of the music community. Hanging out in one was guaranteed to expose you to something new and make you seem, well… cooler. Even if you didn’t know enough to hide your affection for Bell & Sebastian in public.

Something Else also had a nice display of alternative mags. One that caught my eye was Mesh Count, published by Peter J. McGouran. It’s a slim volume full of interviews with screen-printers and full-color reproductions of their work. I’m not sure when the next one comes out, but I’m hoping it’s soon.
