Founded last year by writer and editor Luisa Le Voguer Couyet and photographer Scarlett Carlos Clarke, Hate zine cuts through society’s dredge. Going against the homogeny of our current media landscape, Hate continues to tear apart the boundaries of what’s an acceptable discourse. This is the shit that matters.
Featuring contributions from the likes of Tim Noble, Pam Hogg and Martin Parr, Hate addresses issues such as mental health, sex and gender through promoting individuality, creativity, authenticity and tongue-in-cheek exploits. Now gearing up for their forth issue, Luisa and Scarlett are throwing a huge South London blowout to fund the new publication.
Taking over Brixton Windmill tomorrow night, the duo have curated a killer line-up featuring live performances from the likes of Tear and Fish, as well as DJ sets from Zine Malik (aka Spector’s Fred Macpherson & Swim Deep’s Cavan McCarthy) and Fat White Family’s Lias Saoudi – and at just £3 on the door, you wont find a better deal at Brixton market.
Here, the duo spin together their ultimate mixtape. So grab your dancing shoes and leave your inhibitions at the cloakroom.
The Last Of The Famous International Playboys by Morrissey
“I’m a bit obsessed with Morrissey I really want to give him a copy of Hate so if anyone could help with that, that’d be great!”
Something On Your Mind by Karen Dalton
“My friend Jemma introduced me to Karen Dalton, there is something slightly heartbreaking about her, but this song inspires a strange kind of hope within me.”
Suzy Q by Tonight
“It was my birthday party last weekend, and the only bit that wasn’t overwhelmingly stressful was when me and my closest friends were crammed into my tiny bedroom blasting this.”
Death of a Ladies’ Man by Leonard Cohen
“Surely the biggest Ladies’ man of them all, thank god for Leonard Cohen, RIP.”
Needles & Pins by The Ramones
“I fucking love the Ramones. You can’t listen to this quietly.”
Pretty Pretty Baby by Armand Schaubroeck Steals
“I met Armand Schaubroeck when I was in New York earlier this year with Fat White Family, he was really cool and subdued and had this mischievous grin on his face as he showed us around his House of Guitars. I love the way this song begins, the drums are great.”
Dear Prudence by Siouxsie And The Banshees
“Brilliant song, inspiring women.”
Debaser by Pixies
“I’m really shit at writing about music, there’s only so many times you can say ‘I love this song’, but I do…”
September by Earth, Wind & Fire
“I watched Earth, Wind & Fire in the rain at the incredibly tough post-Brexit Glastonbury this year with my best friend, this song redeemed all the sweat, mud and tears haha, oh god…”
Take a Chance by Mr. Flagio
“I heard this song over five years ago and I’m still obsessed”.
Beam Me Up by Midnight Magic
“One of the best songs to dance to”.
Don’t Leave Me This Way by Thelma Houston
“I love the film boogie nights and although this song isn’t in the film it got me listening to a lot of 70s disco, soul and funk music. This one stood out.”
Lost In Music by Sister Sledge
“Sister Sledge are one of the staple disco bands of their time and choosing a particular disco song to play is difficult but lost in music always makes it onto my playlist.”
Hate’s xmas fundraiser takes place tomorrow from 7pm at The Windmill, 22 Blenheim Gardens, Brixton, SW2 5BZ. £3 on the door.
