A unique voice, exploring adventurous music that others ignore! Audion Magazine (established in 1986) has a reputation for its different stance on modern music, ever willing to embrace the unusual, and seek-out those that have helped shape the face of new-music, from rock/folk/jazz through to the avant-garde. Audion doesn't adhere to trends or fashion, it exists purely for the love of the music. So, if you're into anything musically progressive or unusual, you are sure to find Audion essential reading! And, of course, if you're into Krautrock, genuine progressive, and the music the mainstream and general alternative press ignore - this is the place!

Publishers notes...
AUDION MAGAZINE Copyrighted as serial no. ISSN 0958-0972 with the British Library. Excepting promotional use, permission should be sought from the editor to reprint articles, reviews, graphics, etc. All extracts published should always quote the writer and Audion as the source.
SUBSCRIPTION RATES SUSPENDED As from January 2014 we no longer have an in-house A3 laser printer, and thus cannot run-off Audions whenever we please any more. Because of this subscription rates are suspended, as the cost of printing future Audions is unknown, and increases in postal costs make it impractical honouring subscriptions that may take years to complete. Audion will hopefully continue in some form. Anyone with outstanding subscriptions can or use credit against other Ultima Thule orders.
DISCLAIMER Audion and Ultima Thule are nothing to do with any other businesses or individuals using the same or similar names. Any similarities are purely coincidental! Views raised in Audion may not be those of the publishers, and any criticism should be treated as the personal opinion of the writer, contributor or interviewee concerned. All cover pictures on this site are for illustrative purposes only, and may not be accurately representative of the current published edition (especially so with reprints and issues #41+).
