{     RE:UP Magazine     }    

There are magazines you buy and bring home, lay on the couch and read, sit at the kitchen table and browse, throw on the coffee table and your buddy picks up and flips thru while he waits for you to get your shoes on, your girl skips thru the pages in bed when she can't sleep, and eventually end up getting tossed in the pail. Then there are the mags that you read, and you read again, you won't let your buddies lay a greasy finger on 'em, like a piece of work, of art really, that when you're not reading or drowning deep in the illustrations, you promptly return to a shelf, away from all that daily damage and the like. RE:UP is like that. Hardly feeling fair calling it a magazine, I'll stick with what the kids at RE:UP call it themselves, a manual. A bold term, but deserved, as RE:UP is of the best out there in all qualities. Heavy primo paper, perfect bound, featuring reviews, interviews, and articles with the cream of today's talents, such as Animal Collective, Pete Rock, Prefuse 73, Richard Dorfmeister, Blockhead, Mr. Scruff, Richard Devine, DJ Vadim, Funkstorung, Lyrics Born, and on and on. And then there is the art. RE:UP gets all the weights involved, a quick list being Derrick Hogdson, HunterGatherer, Graphic Havok, Kozyndan, Struggle Inc, Jordan Crane, and on and on and on. But then, nearly every page in each manual could reside on a t-shirt if it were not for the abundant amounts of actual text. That's right, lots and lots of text. We all know a lot of "art" mags these days tend to come heavy with the full-page pics, blown-out and lookin' good, but you end up paying too much for a mag you read in 20 minutes, well, not with RE:UP. This shit is dense, and good. Pay attention to this one, it'll be around for a long, long while.

I keep seeing this at the local record shop. Due to the size, design, and name I always get a little excited and think "Oh boy! The new _1-Up_ is out! And they're actually carrying it here!"

When I realize that I'm wrong I always feel so pettily disappointed that I _don't_ pick it up. I've done this at least 3-4 times now.

Well, I won't make that mistake again. Sorry _RE:UP_, that was wrong of me.

If you can't find it at your local record shop or 'better book stores', ask for it! RE:UP has distribution throught the US, Japan, and Europe. Its also been known to be seen in Tower records.

You can also order it online:
