• TWF Magazine

    TWF Magazine was a frequent UK Gothic Magazine covering music lifestyle and fashion relevent to the Goth (and related) scenes.

    Having originally run from 1998-2001, TWF returned in 2004 in a full sized glossy format! It ran for 10 issues the last of which was released in 2008.

    At it’s peak, TWF was one of the biggest selling UK Gothic Publications, and sold many issues around Europe and the World.

    Most of the back issues are available for free download, click the ‘Back Issues’ tab and help yourself, of course many of the articles are out of date now – but it’s interesting to revisit the early days of some of these bands.

    Kev, who ran TWF, has a radio show on www.1radio.org and also club DJs in the North East of England – so promos etc. still go to a good use. He also did reviews/interviews/etc for Dominion Magazine during its existence. See our links or contact page for more info.

  • Issue 10

    Issue10.qxpIssue 10 – which was the last one we published – that it took a full year from the previous issue and didn’t land until Autumn 2007 was part of the problem.

    Interviews also present with Voices of Masada, Uninvited Guest, Leandra, Zombie Girl, Jesus on Extasy, Ashbury Heights and Lucy’s Drowing.
