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. wow, love the ‘faith’/’pornography’ vibe going on here (though i have trouble imagining n. & r. listening to the cure).

  2. Pingback: Arthur Radio Transmission #13: CLOUDS IN THE HERMAPHRODITIC MIRROR - ARTHUR MAGAZINE

  3. i read a 3-4 (?) page article about Bright Black Morning Light, and kept it as a cherished piece because it so intrigued me. i lost the magazine when i moved and it was tragic for me. i took great pleasure on re-reading the article on BBML’s outlandish way of life. i was sincerely jealous and inspired by the apparent peace they found in the life they made for themselves.

    is there any way i could get my hands on another copy of the article? i have SOME money.
    but would happily pay for the cost to ship it? please email me back even if Barring bad news.

    love and best,
    Isa DF
