Profile Information

ShadowPlay (www.shadowplay.org.uk but largely hard copy) is a London-based perzine/music zine largely focussing on the weird and wonderful in life in a cut'n'paste stylee. ShadowPlay is not about free CDs, it's not about band fashion. ShadowPlay IS about real passion for music, it's about breaking down stupid music barriers between indie, HipHop, folk, electronica, punk, rock-whatever it is if it's genuine, passion and actually good this is what we'll cover-no one's telling us what to do. So enter in, email in and delve into our world.
