w/ free 20 track CD! "The Wire Tapper 15 is the latest volume in the Wire's ongoing series of exclusive new music compilations. The CD will be given away free with every copy of the June issue worldwide and will contain a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks that together will span the spectrum of the kind of underground music that gets featured in the magazine each month, from electronic music, avant rock and new jazz, to dub, hiphop, traditional musics and beyond. On the cover: Sonic Youth (The veteran New York rockers tell Nick Cain about the raw power of Rather Ripped, and give an update on their myriad activities, past, present and future). Features: Terry Day (The former People Band drummer talks Julian Cowley through his interrupted Improv history); Harry Rag (From Düsseldorf punk to pastoral futurism via Wim Wenders and Can with the SYPH vocalist); Jutta Koether (Lina Dzuverovic unravels the personae and multiple media activities of the New York artist and painter); Invisible Jukebox: Rob Mazurek; Yellow Swans (The prolific Portland, Oregon noise duo mull over method, motivation and manifestoes for a better world); Ekkehard Ehlers (The Berlin conceptualist reconfigures blues, jazz and African musics in an attempt to reconnect dead voices across continents); The Primer: John Fahey (David Keenan picks his way through a user's guide to the phantasmagorical folk blues of the original American Primitive)."
