The Wolfmen, infused with the infinite panache and iconic bite of Marco Pirroni and Chris Constantinou, have just released their wonderful new single Jackie, is it my Birthday? featuring Sinéad O’Connor, which is not the only exciting news as they have also given Plectrum a great write up in their blog, Bocca di Lupo.

“There’s a triple-whammy of Wolfmen goodies grabbable over at our favourite new webzine (and bi-monthly magazine) Plectrum – The Cultural Pick.
Plectrum is both a website and hard-copy magazine keeping a contemporary eye on all areas of the arts – fashion, film, music, books and performance. A kaleidoscopic mix where Beatle Boots and Biba, Nigel Waymouth and The Wolfmen appear on the pop-culture playlist. So what was Plectrum’s take on Jackie ?
‘Surreal, transcendent, glamorous pop’
Is just one line from possibly the review of the year. It’s a must-read and is viewable right here
And, as a Bocca bonus, check out Plectrum’s Guy Sangster Adams in-depth interview with Wolf-meisters Marco and Chris. A pitch perfect contextulisation, threading together and time-lining Ants history, Wolfmen formation and current collaborators and projects.
You can dig in here and watch the video interview via the Plectrum Broadcast Player”

Burro, one of the most influential and innovative British menswear labels, has created a new ‘We Like’ section of their website, in which Plectrum is very pleased to have been included, not least because we rather like Burro too!
“Plectrum The Cultural Pick is a diverting magazine and website edited by curator of popular culture Guy Sangster Adams. The printed version comes in an ingenious folded format reminiscent of a rolled up newspaper .Within it’s folds Plectrum enthusiastically covers art, fashion, music, books, film and performance. Nicely put together, knowledgeable and well written we like it.”
