Spin Increases Size, Rakoff Channels Joanna Angel And Chuck Klosterman In Fetish Column

Via executive editor Doug Brod‘s editor’s note:

You may have noticed a few things different about the magazine in your hands. First, Spin has grown up — in size that is. Our new format means that not only is there more to read, but there’s also a bigger showcase for our arresting photography. … Elsewhere, we offer an argument-starting list of the 25 greatest live bands, Audioslave’s Chris Cornell talks candidly about his demons and desires, and in his first piece for Spin, humorist David Rakoff takes an unforgettable trip to a fetish party.

Yet they insist on putting a non-musician on the cover.
