Thread Name: music magazines
Subject: RE: music magazines
used to read The Wire, and probably would start doing so again if my local WH Smiths stocked it. But I wouldn't want to subscribe: I find, generally, that when I read a magazine regularly, then the sort of "stock phrase" house style of the mag starts to mildly irritate me. The Wire is much better written than most music magazines, but even The Wire reached that point eventually. If Ben Watson still wrote for it, I might start buying it again, but that's highly unlikely to happen!
I order fRoots occasionally (direct by email) when it's got a piece on someone I want to read about. The recent Shirley Collins and Tom Paley issues being cases in point.
I've enjoyed reading the (pop) magazine Stool Pigeon where I've seen it.
Hmmmm, maybe I should start a music mag, seeing as I've just been made redundant...
