Cult music magazine Wax Poetics returns to the newsstand
David Holt is one half of the joint venture that is bringing cult music magazine Wax Poetics back to record and magazine shops across Europe this summer. Created by its original editorial team, the magazine, which was launched in 2001 but switched to print on demand in 2018, will return to the format that was so beloved of music enthusiasts, and the relaunch begins with a collector’s edition that combines archive material from the vaults with fresh pieces on London’s thriving jazz scene and 90s acid jazz. In this conversation David speaks about his original interest in the magazine, and why he thinks the time is right for its return to the newsstand.
