Literature, Music, and Culture
Mitzi was one of the first writers to come on board and her Take Note column soon became the most sophisticated and respected part of Axiom magazine. As well as her monthly literary run-down, she has also interviewed two internationally best selling authors, Helen DeWitt and Giles Milton and cartoonist, Adam Pasion.
Mitzi also took the bull by the horns by going to the Tokyo leg of Summer Sonic, where she camped out and saw some of the best bands around today. Since then she has interviewed several bands and has a finger on the pulse of the indie music scene.
Gaming and Otaku Culture
Rajib has been writing for Axiom since it first began in late 2010; contributing the monthly Picks section for the zine, Toothpaste, Rajib soon became the expert in computer gaming. He also secured the world’s first bilingual interview with the Vocaloid team, the people behind the animated pop star, Hatsune Miku. Besides this, Rajib takes a keen interest in Japanese popular culture, a knowledge base he refers to in order to write articles about the super-group, AKB48, or the most influential wrestling computer games in history.
Japanese Pop Culture
Having settled in Japan after stints living in the US, Australia and Sweden, English stereotype Mark uses his innate grasp of foreign cultures to assimilate himself into any civilisation and find the nearest British bar. A failed novelist, and a graduate from the most prestigious university in Sunderland, Mark whiles away his precious time on this Earth by writing about music, popular culture and pretty much anything else that is unlikely to win him the Pulitzer he so desperately craves.
