15 Years of Independent Publishing



Welcome. Rubberneck was founded in 1985 by its editor/publisher Chris Blackford, and is the longest-running experimental music magazine in Britain specialising in improvised musics (improv to its friends). Other genres covered include free jazz, experimental rock, electroacoustic, contemporary composition, plus a section concerned with film music. Contents typically consist of interviews, specially commissioned essays by leading musicians, CD reviews, book reviews, magazine listings, and a video review section devoted to non-mainstream film, including silent film and animation. From time to time, experimental fiction is also published. Happy reading!
