The word 'freak' can be defined as 'a young person devoted to the counter-culture or alternative society,' 'an offensively eccentric or crazy person' or 'a monstrosity, often as exhibited in a show.' That said, people on the pages of my magazine are not necessarily freaks. They are 'phreaks,' a term which is a contraction of 'phone freak' and means something along the lines of hacking into communication systems. An alternative fashion, arts and culture publication, Phreak urges its reader to take a phreaking break from all the bullshit happening online and opt for a night-time stroll down subterranean Eastern Europe. Phreak issue one features Amo Bagratuni's captivating take on Armenia's devastating conflict and looks back on Riga's Untamed Fashion Assembly — a riotous celebration of trashion that Andrew Logan frequented in the 90s. It takes a look at George Nebieridze's nauseating visual tales of ordinary madness and re-watches Andrzej Żuławski's mind-bending films. Bárbara Sánchez-Kane tells Phreak why she does not want to paint inside the 'fucking lines,' and Adrien Flores shares the tales that teeth have told him. The magazine has compiled a Decameron of its own; proposing clubs as an ultimate form of togetherness, a social glue (and a numbing agent) that binds these phreaks together.

P.S. Phreak will not be responsible for nightmares, nausea or obsessive thoughts its pages might induce.
