The top 20 most widely read stories in Outsideleft in September 2023

September was an exciting month at Outsideleft, deviating slightly, and you know how much we love deviation -  deviating slightly from our normal fare of unknowns and unknowables, Alan Rider scooped two big, massive and idiosyncratic interviews. The founding member of The Cure, Lol Tolhurst, mainly discussed his new book of Goth; and an interview with Alaura O'Dell formerly of Psychic TV, which sort of, if these things could actually happen, would have melted our servers like a run on the FTX cyrptocurrency exchange. Truly, that big. And as we look down this list of hits, so much great stuff in one month. Don't ask how we do it unless you love idk's.

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
