FILTER Magazine Celebrates 10 Years In Print
By Staff on January 12, 2012
“Good Music Will Prevail,” that is the motto we have been championing here at FILTER Magazine headquarters for 10 years. That's right, FILTER, the independently-owned avant-garde music magazine, has now entered its 10th year in print, a pretty massive milestone indeed.
Over the past ten years (2002 - 2012) FILTER Magazine has stayed true to its roots. The publication was founded on the philosophy of printing quality content about quality music, helping fans to discover artists and their stories. From the first issue, On The Dark Side of The Moon with Weezer, which hit newsstands in July 2002, to the upcoming issue 47, on-sale Feb. 17, the magazine’s unwavering dedication to guide people towards good music discovery has kept its readership growing and FILTER readers coming back for more.
So what does this mean for you, the FILTER reader? As the year rolls out, we will be revisiting certain features from every single FILTER Issue ever published including covers stories from David Bowie, Lou Reed & The Strokes, Tom Waits, Bjork and more and we will also look at where all of our Getting To Know artists are now.
