A unique voice, exploring adventurous music that others ignore! Audion Magazine (established in 1986) has a reputation for its different
stance on modern music, ever willing to embrace the unusual, and seek-out those that have helped shape the face of new-music, from
rock/folk/jazz through to the avant-garde. Audion doesn't adhere to trends or fashion, it exists purely for the love of the music.
So, if you're into anything musically progressive or unusual, you are sure to find Audion essential reading! And, of course, if you're into
Krautrock, genuine progressive, and the music the mainstream and general alternative press ignore - this is the place!

For those that wanted all the Krautrock and related content from Audion magazine, here is your dream request answered.
This publication is a companion to our book and rom editions of The Crack In The Cosmic Egg, culled from Audion issues
1 to 58. It is compiled in a rough A-Z format, with articles first, followed by reviews. Most of the articles are presented with the original layout, when this is possible, with a few extra images added!

 

The Crack In The Cosmic Egg "Krautrock Scrapbook 2022 edition" comes as 5 pdf files totalling 400 pages. The YouTube video is just a taster of the first few pages. It will be available at https://audion1.bandcamp.com/ from mid August 2022 for the crazy price of £12 GBP.

 

Important notes: This publication is for those that don't want to buy all issues of Audion magazine and just want the Krautrock and related content in magazine form. Most of this text is also found in the bonus "in Audion magazine" pages in the new The Crack In The Cosmic Egg rom as well.

Brand-new Audion issues, starting with Audion 59 as a bi-monthly publication. Each issue includes the Audion magazine as a pdf file (viewable on most computers and media devices, which purchasers can also print-off if required), plus text files (for ease of searching, screen reading for the visually impaired, or promotional use), and sometimes other items (extra images, posters, etc.). All Audion multimedia downloads come with free audio samples of selected items reviewed in the issue, some with exclusives/rarities.

Publishers notes...
AUDION MAGAZINE Copyrighted as serial no. ISSN 0958-0972 with the British Library. Excepting promotional use, permission should be sought from the editor to reprint articles, reviews, graphics, etc. All extracts published should always quote the writer and Audion as the source.
SUBSCRIPTION RATES As from January 2014 we no longer have an in-house A3 laser printer, and thus cannot run-off Audions whenever we please any more. Because of this subscription rates were suspended. In July 2020 Audion was relaunched as a pdf/multimedia publication via Bandcamp.
