Audion Magazine (established 1986) has a reputation for its different stance on modern music, ever willing to embrace the
unusual, and seek-out those that have helped shape the face of new-music, from rock/folk/jazz to the avant-garde. Audion doesn't adhere to trends or fashion, it exists purely for the love of the music.
