With a feeling of celebrating that the festival season is upon us, mixed with slight incredulity that we've made it to our 10th issue, there's even more to get excited about : the release of Peter Gabriel's new album 'OVO', his first since the 'Secret World Live' in 1994. This event, alongside the release of some great new music from Real World Records and the anticipation of the upcoming WOMAD festivals, have combined to generate even more than the normal amount of industrious activity here in BOX.

Naturally we've devoted a substantial part of this issue to 'OVO'. We have an interview with Peter Gabriel on the making of the album and it's great to see some new photos - these from Anton Corbijn and Stephen Lovell-Davis.
