The occultural stew is hot !
"As usual with this excellent Portuguese anthology, we find ourselves positioned in a gap between the old and the new on many levels. The occultural, post-industrial (as in the music/subculture, not as in general history), avant garde environment swings easily between play and philosophy, between genuine transformation and abstracted discourse, between pure experimentation and thorough thinking. Most of it is still fairly fresh, I have to say. If there’s some kind of code that unites these disparate voices, it’s an antithetical stance against the passive collective, expressed in eloquent experiments. Single voices spewing out disdain or frustration in honest, poetical and sometimes scary bursts."
By Carl Abrahamsson

"I've dipped into Antibothis and what I've read so far is brilliant. It really
does cross over with so much that I'm into. Finding stuff about the master
musicians of Joujouka, Nigel Ayers playing with dictionaries and Google, Chad
Hensley's piece on necrophilia - it's all disturbingly good work". David Hine, british comic writer.
"We highly recommend you order ANTIBOTHIS", V. Vale, Re/Search Books. U.S.A.
"ANTIBOTHIS is a mighty fine journal!", Antero Alli.
"Antibothis offers 112 fat pages of food for thought, a veritable feast of heretical initiations and countercultural discourse, offering both options for personal spiritual development and alternatives to the alienated, atomised, deracinated and homogenised consumer culture of today, which sits poised on the brink of economic and ecological devastation. Mainstream culture is the problem – Antibothis is striving to be part of the solution". Simon Collins, Judaskiss, U.K.

"thèmes "borderline", proche d'une certaine contre-culture américaine qui s'incarnait dans les années 80/90 autour de personnages comme John Oswald (Plunderphonics). Entre littérature expérimentale, engagement politique et démarche artistique où le collage et le détournement ont une grande place". Musiques e Cultures Digitales, France
