Sounds interesting
How much is postage to those of us in UK or Continental Europe ?

Thanks for your interest! Postage for a single issue to the UK, Europe, etc. Is $3 USD. It increases quickly from there if multiple issues are ordered, as it is then considered a "package".

Total cost of a single issue to Europe is $9 USD. I have paid more than that for cassettes from Europe to the US... probably reviewed them in this issue :)

Pleased to report I have shipped Deft Esoterica to six countries so far! Hope this helps!

Update: my mistake, shipping is actually $5 USD outside of the US and Canada, International First Class. Didn't want to "bait and switch" any fellow Wigglers!

Lots of sales today, add a few more countries, which has been humbling and exciting. Thank you!

Thanks for the great zines Claude! Your FernLodge interview was worth the price alone. I look forward to checking out the other artists you've reviewed.

Thanks so much Grant! DEFINITELY check out the other artists, but yes, I was very pleased with the FernLodge interview. Joe is very humble and is an amazing sound artist. If he lived in LA and had a YouTube channel of gear he would be on everyone's radar. Hoping he gets some of the attention he deserves, hoping his inclusion in issue two can play a small part in that!

Thanks for the complements Claude! and thank you for giving the community such an amazing zine... It was a pleasure working with you... Now I need to try and figure out if I should move to LA or not :hihi:

So will Deft Esoterica be coming back for another issue? I enjoyed the first two.

ABSOLUTELY! So pleased you enjoyed issues one and two! Issue three is in the final stages and should be available in the next month!

I haven't deviated from form or format one bit: three interviews with awesome artists, a splash of music-related personal writing, reviews, and Ola's sketches.

I will definitely let it be known here when it becomes available!

Alas, I have not! My vintage turntable, once removed from storage, needed a new needle (aquired) and I have to re-balance the tone-arm- it's a broqdcast Technics with a wooden tone-arm and this was previous accomplished with a small weight. Long story short, none of the LPs I have received have been reviewed yet, I have resisted as I worried about the old needle damaging grooves, etc. SO, issue four will have a nice selection of LP reviews, yours definitely included! The packing is lovely by the way!

Also, my apologies for the delay, and please do not interpret it as disinterest- I am quite excited to get back to listening to vinyl, though it has turned into a bit of a project! Hopefully, if previous patterns hold, the readership will continue to expand, particularly after another happening at the beginning of next month. My sincere hope is to get the word out and I'm comfortable playing the long game.

Hi Claude

That, sadly, is the problem with vinyl. The local shop where I bought my current turntable about 10 years ago, and where I have bought replacement stylii ever since, has shut down; so it's going to have to be online purchase next time I need one. Plus, given that they are £40 each and cashflow isn't great I'm finding myself listening to CDs more at the moment.
