Clash is a popular music and fashion magazine based in the United Kingdom. Its magazine title is published 12 times a year. The magazine alternates between modern bands such as The Horrors, Florence & The Machine and Jamie xx as well as hip-hop artists like DJ Shadow, Kanye West and Beastie Boys, who have all had cover spots in recent issues. It concentrates on music and fashion, and often their effect on surrounding culture, as well as film and technology. However they do also have a common theme throughout their reviews of slandering musicians who don't coincide with their almost extremist views and ideals of music - possibly for comedic value and entertainment for those who read the magazine. The magazine won the Best New Magazine award in 2004 at the PPA Magazine Awards and has won further awards in England and Scotland. Most notably, Magazine Of The Year at the 2011 Record Of The Day Awards. At the turn of 2011, Clash Magazine took on an entirely new look, ditching the previous glossy feel and music led design, for an altogether more artistically led approach. The publication is based around the larger Clash brand, which extends to live events around the country and festival partnerships/parties, and the website ClashMusic.com. 2011 saw Clash partner Levi's and Spotify to bring Primal Scream to London's Electric Brixton for one of their final shows with the former Stone Roses member, Mani.
