ARTHUR LABEL OF THE YEAR, 2005: THE NUMERO GROUP.

$88.00: A one year subscription to the Numero Group.

“Get all six 2006 records for one low price. Next year’s schedule is shaping up to be our deepest dig yet, with three Eccentric Soul releases, representing Miami, Detroit and Chicago, an incredible hippie-folk collection of Joni Mitchell’s unheralded competitors, a treasury of funky gospel, and a disco-rap bomb from Brooklyn that you might as well glue to your CD player. This offer is good only until January 31st 2006. You’ll regret passing it up in June.”

About Jay Babcock

I am the co-founder and editor of Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curator of the three Arthur music festival events (Arthurfest, ArthurBall, and Arthur Nights) (2005-6). Prior to that I was a district office staffer for Congressman Henry A. Waxman, a DJ at Silver Lake pirate radio station KBLT, a copy editor at Larry Flynt Publications, an editor at Mean magazine, and a freelance journalist contributing work to LAWeekly, Mojo, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Vibe, Rap Pages, Grand Royal and many other print and online outlets. An extended piece I wrote on Fela Kuti was selected for the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 anthology. In 2006, I was one of five Angelenos listed in the Music section of Los Angeles Magazine's annual "Power" issue. In 2007-8, I produced a blog called "Nature Trumps," about the L.A. River. Today, I live a peaceful life in Tucson, Arizona with Stephanie Smith. https://linktr.ee/jaywbabcock
