Polari magazine issue # 4 is out at the beginning of next week. The theme is Sci-Fi in Hi-Fi. This edition is packed with articles about Sci-Fi, including a feature on politics, religion and sex in the TV series Battlestar Galactica. There are also pieces on Star Trek, Firefly and Gattaca. There is also an amazing episode of Clementine the Living Fashion Doll in the 25th Century! In Hi-Fi there is a review of Patrick Wolf’s new album The Bachelor. There is also the headline interview with Tori Amos. Here is a snippet from that interview:
“It’s a whole,” Tori Amos said in describing her tenth studio album, Abnormally Attracted to Sin. “It’s a story with short stories.”
“What I want people to think about is that the beginnings of this record were being written at the end of our old world, where the credit was still ok, and that we could rest easy at night not thinking that everything we have might be gone tomorrow. The beginning of this whole work, the time frame, occurred as things were beginning to shake. I was watching Christian Lamb’s dailies, the montage of our life on the road, and I was seeing something that the music he was putting it to wasn’t telling, that a different story needed to be told.” The dailies revealed that “instead of taking from people,” the narrator of the story would need to understand “the need that she, to survive, had to give of herself. But that can be very ‘Welcoming the vampires’ as well. There’s a double-edged sword to that story.”
