About Jay Babcock

I am an independent writer and editor based in Tucson, Arizona. In 2023: I publish an email newsletter called LANDLINE = Previously: I co-founded and edited Arthur Magazine (2002-2008, 2012-13) and curated 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 somehow 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. From 2010 to 2021, I lived in rural wilderness in Joshua Tree, Ca.

  1. I was considered too old when they started at the Cherokee . ’77 . 30 yrs now and the “new punks “are dying . He was such a straight kid and worked to be crazy. I intend to carry-on AD INFINITUM!!! NELSON SLATER and STEAM AGE TIME GIANT

  2. Kudos to you, Arthur Magazine, for letting the outside world know about this most underrated Man & his performance art. The Cramps were wearing all of their lo-fi & underground Psychotronic film influences upon their sleeves before ANYBODY. I have been reading your mag for years now & thanx for representing all that is still pure psychedelic kulture.
