The Big Moon are ready to take over in September’s Dork, out now

Our biggest issue yet features more bands than is strictly sensible.
Dork, September 2016
You know the deal by now. Every month (well, both of them – Ed), we’ve told you the new issue of Dork is packed with stuff. Rammed. Loaded. They have been too, but this month makes all previous attempts look well under weight. September’s mag is something else.

For a start off, it’s literally our biggest yet – featuring an increased page count. We needed it too, to fit in all these goodies.

This month’s cover features infectious upstarts The Big Moon. Currently holed up in the studio working on their debut album, they’re a force of personality that refuses to be contained any longer. One of the most exciting new bands on the block, by the time you’re done you’ll be convinced they’re heading for very, very big things. So long as they don’t have to talk to Robbie Williams to get there. Then it might get, y’know, a bit tongue tied. Don’t ask, you’ll find out soon enough.

The delights of the new Dork go far further than skin deep, though. We’ve got more bands than you can shake a stick at – namely (deep breath) Warpaint, AlunaGeorge, Rat Boy, Deap Vally, Banks, The Wytches, Merchandise, Blossoms, Sundara Karma, Beach Slang, Dilly Dally, Twin Atlantic, How To Dress Well, Public Access TV, Shura, Death Spells, Beach Baby, Doe, Oh Wonder, The Lemon Twigs, Get Inuit, Will Joseph Cook, Hana, Dagny, Baby Strange, Stevie Parker, Lewis Del Mar and loads, loads more.

That’s not everything, either. Alongside the latest reviews, reports, news and general bobbins, this month we’ve gone one step further. On top of our usual mag there’s an extra special Reading 2016 pull out poster ‘zine. Yep, two for one. Featuring reports from across the weekend, exclusive photos, posters (well, it is a poster ‘zine), and interviews with The Vaccines, Slaves, Two Door Cinema Club and more, it’s a sizeable cherry on top of a massive cake.

The new issue of Dork is out now. Find it in record stores and venues around the UK, read it online here, or order a copy and subscribe here.
