Thanks, John and Co., for all the love and friendship down the years NICK GODFREY, PRECIOUS RECORDINGS OF LONDON 25 years, eh? Approximately 22 more than us, then ..thanks for your all dedication, enthusiasm and support – it really is hugely appreciated. Big congratulations – and don't forget, let's keep on making it precious DOUG HOEKSTRA, SOLO ARTIST (3 Pennyblackmusic interviews between 2002 and 2021.) Happy Birthday, Pennyblackmusic! Here’s to the next 25, fighting the good fight and shining a light on the heroes and heroines of independent and/or outsider music. I am fortunate to have been featured in the magazine as part of this community, but this goes beyond nice (and appreciated) reviews to years of wide-ranging conversations with the estimable John Clarkson, the man steering the ship. As a magazine, Pennyblack reflects these connections that matter, between artists, writers, and all those with a passion for the something more that life offers in its very best moments. Well-done and good karma to you. JOHN HOWARD, SOLO ARTIST (3 Pennyblackmusic interviews between 2018 and 2022.) Happy 25th Anniversary Pennyblackmusic Magazine! Fantastic achievement.

Thank you for supporting Morton Valence through thick and thin! And for standing up for music such as ours that isn’t necessarily designed for mass consumption, and putting us shoulder to shoulder with some living legends on the virtual pages of your fine publication. And of course for having us at your legendary gigs!! We can’t wait to see you soon, hopefully at the next one!! Many happy returns, and here’s to the next 25 years.

While I am grateful for the continuous coverage of my musical endeavors by PBM, I am more-so impressed that this international publication has been around for such a long time… Truly a rarity in today’s music industry!

Here is to another 25 years of success!
