I thought it had made some great improvements over the last few years, and I'd even heard people saying that it was now a really positive part of the membership package. However, we played a gig on friday night where the usual information stall person had to have his arm twisted to even put the current edition out on display, as they were so embarassed by the cover and the general tone of the content. When he showed it to me it felt like I'd stepped back through a twenty year timewarp.
I think it could be a great magazine, that should be a figurehead for what is really a worthwhile organisation, but to be honest, I think it does neither EFDSS or its contributors any favours at the moment and seems adrift from where the rest of the folk scene is going (or has been for some time!)
