Praise for Issue 9

Issue 9 comes with a free CD and is limited to just 250 copies, order your copy before it's sold out! Here's what a few mags have had to say:
"The content is in-depth and well written, with heaps of passion for the bands covered. In their own words 'here's to many more'" - Big Cheese Magazine.

"Another blast of enthusiasm rammed up the backside of the complacent and easily pleased, Noisy Zine seeks to cover all things indie, pop, punk, rock, alternative and more in the Essex area, and what's more, even after four years, they complete this apparently thankless task with energy, intelligence and good humour." - R*E*P*E*A*T zine.
