“Hey friends, the Autumn issue is supposed to be due out tomorrow but just wanted to let you know that there are a few changes going on at Corker at the moment. The biggest at the moment being we’re going digital and bi-monthly, which means more regular goodness. The digital edition will be available on the iPad and android tablets from July. If you’re a print subscriber, please get in touch at lizza[at]corkermag[dot]com and we can organise a transfer to the digital subscription or a refund. Thanks so much for your understanding.”—
There’s only one way to celebrate the return of Corker magazine … sorry, that’s bullshit. There were at least 381 different ideas that we came up with to mark the return of Corker after a three-year hiatus. What we finally agreed upon is going to be huge.
Details: Thursday, December 1, at a secret location in Sydney. Mark it in your diaries, people!
We chat to Kelly Ann in the lead-up to her last Melbourne show (for now, anyway) performing as Miss Kelly Ann Doll. She shares a glimpse into her passion, dedication and discipline as a self-managing artist and as a performer, in whom she is both her own best friend and worst enemy.
We were a little worried about the state of Aussie hip hop earlier in the year when we heard a certain new song on the radio with anti-George Bush lyrics. Uh, we’re in 2011 people. Bush was so 2001. Osama bin Laden was just killed and no-one’s even mentioned George Jr - founding crusader of the war on terror - in the news articles.
But then a little miracle in the form of a CD popped into our mailbox: Beats Working, Found The Sound. And with the first listening of their indie release, Aussie hip hop was redeemed. According to us, at least.
We chatted to MC Tullum Delaney (aka Mr Mullut) to find out more about the group, teleportation, inspiration and tacos.
