Moder—n no.3

¥3,850 (regular edition) / ¥9,350 (special edition) / ¥16,500 (special edition + T-shirt)


 Moder—n is a culture magazine that covers a wide variety of contemporary culture by creating an art book-like magazine with bold visual compositions and dividing the contents into two (A & B) sides like an analog record. It is a magazine that can be listened to as well as seen, with music created by the participating artists included as a supplement in the form of analog records.

 This third issue of the magazine features the legendary band PUZZLE PUNKS, a band of two legendary Japanese cult icons, contemporary artist Shinro Ohtake and EYヨ of the Boredoms, who have been struggling for many years, crossing over the borders from the contemporary art world to the underground music world with ease. The magazine is edited in such a way that readers can enjoy their works from both visual and sound perspectives.

 The magazine features 60 pages of artwork by Shinro Ohtake and EYヨ, arranged like a record, side-A and side-B.

 A separate text book by Masato Matsumura, a music critic and editor, will be included an essay which writes about the individual activities of two artists and their history from the formation of PUZZLE PUNKS to this latest release.

 The special edition includes “PUZZPUNN,” Puzzle Punks’ first album of 14 songs in 26 years, on fluorescent marble 10-inch analog vinyl. (*The regular edition includes a flexi disc with two songs from the album.)

 Please “listen to the magazine” and “look at the record” to experience the phenomenon of the revival of PUZZLE PUNKS that will further extend the history of contemporary art and underground music.
