Music Under Pressure

First Edition

This issue of Index on Censorship magazine is available for purchase as an individual volume.

For musicians, broadcasters, singers and their fans around the world, censorship is a fact of life – from legal threats against filesharers to restrictions on performing live. But some musicians and music lovers face more extreme conditions than others. In its latest issue, Index publishes interviews and articles by leading music writers and musicians on the challenges to free expression – whether digital, legal or commercial.

Featuring:
*Daniel Barenboim on his stand against censorship
*Radiohead's Colin Greenwood on how the net sets musicians free
*Will Self on banning the Sex Pistols
*Femi Kuti on confronting censors in Nigeria

Read about the songs they tried to ban, the musicians stopped for playing live, and the singers who are put on trial in the bumper Smashed Hits issue of Index.

Index on Censorship is an award-winning magazine, devoted to protecting and promoting free expression. International in outlook, outspoken in comment, Index on Censorship reports on free expression violations around the world, publishes banned writing and shines a light on vital free expression issues through original, challenging and intelligent commentary and analysis, publishing some of the world's finest writers.
