Junkies Magazine covers all genres of UNDERGROUND music, art, film,
fashion and entertainment. If you're unsure whether your band qualifies
to be covered in SJM, email
us! Below you will find information on the various categories that
we generally feature musicians, art, etc. in as well as how to properly
submit materials. If what you're looking for specifically isn't here,
then email us with what it is you need and we'll get it to you.
Make sure you always contact Wednesday
Elektra about opportunities of being featured and/or covered in
Space Junkies Magazine. Do not contact any of our staff or contributors
prior to contacting Wednesday, if you would like a specific staff/contributor
to interview, review or cover your works for publication in SJM then
email Wednesday first and REQUEST the person you would like to have
cover you. If you do not contact Wednesday, there is absolutely no guarantee
that your coverage will appear in SJM.
Space Junkies Magazine is always looking for new, underground bands,
artists, labels, zines, radio stations, etc. of ANY genre to interview
for upcoming issues. Most
of our interviews (depending on which staff member interviews you) are
conducted through email or instant messenger. A few of our staff will
do one on one (person to person) and phone interviews depending on your
geographical location and schedule.
1. An official website (doesn't have to
be a domain name, but must not be a "fan" site - see #2 if
you don't have a website). This is so we can collect information on
your band to set a basis for our interview questions.
2. Press kit (if you do NOT have a website,
or if you want to ensure that you will be interviewed). Must be mailed
to Wednesday Elektra via snail-mail. We DO NOT accept EPKs, so don't
bother sending us one.
3. Notable information about your band -
what you're trying to promote/sell/release/show off, etc. So we know
what is important to YOU and what you'd like the basis of your interview
with us to be about. I.e. if you have an upcoming tour that you'd like
to talk about, or an album release, or perhaps you've worked with a
well known band and are proud of the fact and want all of our readers
to know, etc.
4. Photos. Can be emailed to us in jpg/gif
format or can be sent to us on a disc with your press kit. We use these
photos for publication purposes, keep in mind we're a web zine, so 72-150
dpi is fine for us. Do not email us excessively large image files.
5. The following information emailed
Your band's name:
Email address (of who we should contact for the interview):
Telephone # (not required):
Instant Messengers (AIM, Yahoo, ICQ, etc. - also not required)
City, State/Prov., Country:

Why you want to be added to our interview listings:
you are on our interview listings it's only a matter of time before
you are either contacted to arrange a person to person meeting or are
sent interview questions to answer. If you want to ensure that we will

(this will also get your album reviewed).
