FILTER Issue 32

The Creator: Inside the Collaborative World and Visionary Mind of Peter Gabriel
On stands September 02, 2008


FILTER Issue 32

At a time when music and culture coverage needs it the most, FILTER has once again raised the bar. Running through the heart of our latest issue—featuring an exclusive interview with cover artist Peter Gabriel—is the central theme of creation.

As such, Patti Smith delves into her transformation from an angsty New York poet into the punk icon we know today.

Jon Brion connects with Randy Newman to explore the latter’s enigmatic nature.

Matthew Broderick pays tribute to Marlon Brando and their work on a film called The Freshman.

And award-winning political satirist Bill Maher takes a leap of faith with his new film, Religulous, with commentary from acclaimed director, Larry Charles (Borat, Curb Your Enthusiasm).

Also between the covers are exclusives with Oasis, Of Montreal, Black Kids, Ra Ra Riot and more.

With the latest issue of FILTER, we have striven to create much more than a typical music magazine. Instead of simply “reporting the news” with profiles of bands and artists, we hold our storytelling to a higher standard, thus enabling our readers to be changed by the experience of reading. These creators and visionary artists spoke to FILTER because they respect our credibility and share our creative vision.

We are forever committed to the tangible aesthetic of holding a magazine in one’s hands, and FILTER continues to deliver visually appealing and thought-provoking content not found anywhere else.

Where other magazines are shrinking and disappearing, we’re thriving. Good music will prevail.
