The critically engaging Garageland magazine examines Nostalgia in its eighth issue (Summer 2009).

Financial crisis, cheating MPs and predicted hard times have caused an inordinate amount of rose-tinted looking back. Garageland comes over all misty-eyed and joins the masses by looking back (at looking back) with an eclectic collection of interesting, informative and provocative articles that examine the surprisingly complex subject of nostalgia. Content includes interviews with film director Terence Davies and artists George Shaw and Joel Tomlin. A yearning for a return to more politically engaged art takes in work by Laura Oldfield Ford, Skart and Gosga Macuga and a look at beauty contests features photos and comment by Ivan Jones and work by Erica Eyres. Elsewhere Andrew Gallix profiles LUV the queens of phantom bands and Lucy Harrison encounters ostalgie from residents of the former communist GDR. Alex Michon, best known as the creator of The Clash’s iconic clothes is our Nostalgia cover artist and the ever-popular film club looks at Tarkovsky’s Nostalgia and Todd Haynes’ Far From Heaven. Also in the magazine... fado, a look inside David Harrison’s studio, football, Tomma Abts, British Sea Power, Spartacus Chetwynd, fiction from Polly Gould and Tamarin Norwood, Nadia Hebson, Annabel Dover and psychometry, Proust, David Lynch’s Lost Highway and lots more
