Looking for new reviewers!


We’re looking for new reviewers to join our merry crew. If you like writing about alternative music, then we’d love to hear from you! The position is unpaid, but our average hit count is about 100,000 a month (so that means quite a lot of exposure) and you’ll get access to some of the best new music around. The site is currently undergoing development so that it’ll be faster, leaner and generally more pleasing to look at, but that all takes time and effort, so the more writers, the better!

Please send samples of your work to ripper@twobeatsoff.co.uk. We expect two reviews a month, but we’re pretty flexible. While you’d start off on reviews, we’re happy to discuss putting together other features and possibilities.

xoxo – Ripper

Reviewer slot open!

For a number of different reasons, Rosalia has decided to step down as a regular contributor. You will still see a few articles from her, but she can no longer commit to the regular reviewer position. As such, we have a slot open!

If you’re interested in writing reviews for TwoBeatsOff (with scope to get involved with other aspects of the site), then please send a sample of your work to ripper@twobeatsoff.co.uk. The position is unpaid, but you’ll get the opportunity to have your work displayed on an up-and-coming zine that averages around 60,000 hits a month (that’s more than Christopher Gutierrez of askheychris fame is getting at the moment!) and get your hands on new music from some of the best new punk, ska, hardcore and alternative bands around right now.

We are open to giving more than one person the position if we get a lot of brilliant stuff, but we are essentially just looking for one more person at the moment. There will be more advertisements for positions once the site redesign has been fully implemented.

Just to let you know what’s going on…

Hey everyone!

I’m afraid the new build is taking me much longer than expected. I’m not exactly a pro at PHP and WordPress themes but I’m getting there and it’s a learning experience. We’re getting reviews out pretty regularly still, but we are sorry to any bands that have sent us their release and it’s taken us a while to get round to it. I’m going to be at Reading Festival next weekend so I’ll try and update the site with some new content before I go.

Even with three new reviewers, we’ve still got a lot of releases to cover! So if you’d like to contribute to TwoBeatsOff, then please, drop me an email (ripper@twobeatsoff.co.uk) with a sample of your writing.

Stay classy,
xoxo – Ripper

New writers request!

Hello, all!

As you may have realised, Kitteh and myself are basically the only two working on this zine at the moment. While we love it with all our hearts, it can get a bit difficult to get material out on time with just the two of us working on it and we’d love to be able to get the ball rolling on some other projects for the site. Therefore, TwoBeatsOff is looking for a few good reviewers. We don’t do news articles, like other websites, purely because there are so many other sites working on that. We do, however, do reviews, interviews and features based on the alternative scene.

So, we are specifically looking for REVIEWERS at this point in time, who may then get to work on interviews and features after I’ve seen enough of your work. The position is unpaid (we’re not exactly earning any money except site upkeep ourselves), but we get a lot of hits a month and if you’re blogging about music anyway, why not post it somewhere with a little more exposure? We can promise sweet new music to listen to, at the very least.

Email me at ripper@twobeatsoff.co.uk if you’re interested with some samples of your writing.
