Subject: ROCK'N'REEL RE-LAUNCH
From: GUEST,ROCK'N'REEL MAGAZINE
Date: 03 Dec 06 - 11:27 AM

Rock'n'Reel is back!
www.rock-n-reel.co.uk

Rock'n'Reel….a music magazine covering the very best in roots, rock, blues and beyond.

The new publisher of Rock'n'Reel is Richard Ellin who was the commercial publisher of 'CD Review' and advertisement director…'Forte' (Trust House Fortes magazine).
Ellin was consultant to Mercedes on the re-launch of their consumer publication. He was involved in the launch of the Today newspaper and has also worked for the
BBC on 'The Radio Times'.

A fan and subscriber to the original Rock'n'Reel first published in 1998, Richard Ellin is committed to the magazine's long term future as a serious music journal.
Rock'n'Reel started life as a fanzine with modest ambitions and grew into a fully fledged magazine; this development will now continue with the relaunch
in December 2006. The new version of Rock'n'Reel will appear nationally as a one hundred and forty page glossy bi monthly with its own distinctive cover mount
CD entitled 'UN-HERD'

Un-Herd Volume 1 includes music by Canned Heat, Ani DiFranco, Steve Hackett, Eleanor McEvoy, Paul Lamb and The King Snakes, Colin Scot, Heartless Bastards, Die Hunns, Luke Doucet, Denison Witmer and more. There will be a further free CD in the Un-herd series affixed to the cover of each subsequent issue of Rock'n'Reel.

Never a magazine to kow-tow to the vagaries of musical fashion, Rock'n'Reel has attracted some of the best music writers in the British Isles.
Editor Sean McGhee returns with most of the original writing team who are equally delighted and excited to be working again on the magazine promising lots of exclusive interviews and interesting music features and off the wall photography.   

Rock'n'Reel has been completely redesigned in full colour with reader friendly layouts. The review section will be divided into categories of styles allowing readers to locate their favourite music in a more satisfying and absorbing way.

The first issue of the relaunched Rock'n'Reel includes interviews with Shane MacGowan, Donovan, Paul Rodgers, Flogging Molly, Christy Moore, Jacqui McShee, Arlo Guthrie, Andy Roberts, Dick Gaughan, Legendary Shack Shakers, James Yorkston, Spiers & Boden, Joe Brown, and features on Bob Dylan, Marc Bolan, Nick Drake, Arthur Lee and Syd Barrett … plus all the usual CD, live, DVD, book reviews and news.

A one year subscription to the magazine includes a five CD offer. The collection courtesy of Terra Nova and Osmosys Records gives the listener almost five hours of hard core folk, world music and comedy as well as left field contemporary sounds. The offer earns the subscriber seventy one tracks which include some very rare pieces by well known performers as well as gems from up and coming artists. Potential subscribers can take up the offer by either visiting the web-site www.rock-n-reel.co.uk
or by purchasing the first edition which includes full subscription details and an application form.      
Alternatively Rock'n'Reel is available nationally from WH Smiths and all good newsagents plus Virgin, HMV, Our Price and Borders stores. Distribution nationally is by Comag.

I thought one of the great charms of the old mag was that it was virtually impossible to read. It gave it a fine underground, faintly illegal feel.
The other good thing, which I hope continues, was Sean the editor's enthusiatic niceness. He always wrote great reviews, which means evryone's publicity handouts always had quotes from Rock'n'Reel saying great, magnificent, terrific etc.

We all will. Sean McGhee has more insight into what constitutes the living artform of folk music than the entire staff of the BBC, Folk Roots, the Arts Council, and The English Folk Song and dance Society - all rolled together.

What amazes me that a man of his great creative energy has not been talent spotted and recruited into a powerful position.

Not all all that surprising I suppose, given the establishments lack of ability to spot talent.

The invite to advertise folder came to me and I binned it because the picture on the front of Shane MacGowan was the most revolting thing I have seen in a long time. Why on earth did you choose that one? I didn't feel encouraged to either use, read or subscribe to the mag I'm afraid. All because of that picture.

Re the pic of Shane MacGowan on the cover of Rock'n'Reel. I chose it because it possesses, in the words of Yeats 'A Terrible Beauty'.
It reminds me of a amalgamation of Brendan Behan, Ronnie Drew,Shaney Mac and the spirit of the rough edge of the Irish ballad tradition...
Quite simply it's a stuning cover shot and a superb and evocative photo.

I picked up a copy from the Leeds branch of Borders today.

The first thing that hit me was how glossy and professional looking it was and I was a bit conderned that it wouldn't be as eclectic and interesting as in days of yore but, in fact, Sean and his team have stuck to their guns and produced an issue that is as well written and genre crossing as it ever was.Tremendous! (By the way, if I can stick my oar into the cover controversy, I think it's a deliciosly provocative portrait of one of the great folk icons.)

The free cd is a joy too. It's not all to my taste but even the crap stuff is interesting and it's introduced me to some stunning performers that I'd never previously heard of (Jon Auer, Dennisn Witmer, Die Hunns).

This first issue of the reborn R'n'R has set the benchmark confidently high. I truly hope it sells in decent quantities. Sean and Richard Ellin deserve it.

You can buy it online too: www.rock-n-reel.co.uk (click on the graphic at the bottom of the page, some people couldn't find that). That includes taking out a subscription, which I've done, for a year (6 issues) or just one copy.

There were some problems with the online oredering system, but I expect that's been sorted by now. My copy arrived today anyway.

I'm just listening to the 5 CDs than come with the first issue. 6 in fact, as one of them's a double. I haven't even read the mag yet. Yes Greg, there's a nice review of Trip to the Lakes!

I beg to differ! We did try VERY hard. Around a hundred different shots in total. The photo was taken live at Morecambe Wasted festival 2005 and is part of around 15 pics of MacGowan (not McGowan-spelling!!) taken that days. Some others are included in the feature. I've explained why I liked the photo so much earlier, but it's certainly provoked a response! You won't forget it in a hurry!
Am pleased to report the relaunched magazine is flying out of the shops! something that has pleased and truly surprised me after a four year break. The amount of goodwill and welcome back messages I've had has been overwhelming.
Watch out as well for an interview with Sean McGhee on the Bob Harris show sometime next week!

Good to have Rock 'n' Reel back again. I recommend those that want to get hold of a copy to buy a subscription. I suspect that this provides a degree of financial stability for the publishers and gives them an idea of sales figures (but what do I know, I'm a care service manager, not a marketing person). However, I got the first edition v. quickly, and 4 free cds to boot (one of which was a double). Good luck for the future; long may you be with us!

Hope you're not disappointed! Although I doubt you will be. Here's a review of the mag from Jacey Bedford of Artisan/Britfolk

I just had time to sit down and read my advertiser's copy of the new
bi-monthly Rock n Reel magazine and I must admit I'm impressed. The
whole thing seems to strike a nice balance between magazines at either
end of the folk spectrum. On it's first showing I'd say was a serious
contender for being a candidate for a music magazine that serves the
folk world well while covering the wide middle ground between very
traditional and very rootsy.

It certainly doesn't seek to be a copy of either of the two major folk
glossies, but I think it's going to find a big audience.


The first issue under new management - still edited by Sean McGhee with
the usual Cumbrian editorial address, but now published by Richard Ellin
of the Welsh outfit, 'Hand to Mouth Publishing Ltd.' - has articles
about Shane MacGowan, Flogging Molly, Nick Drake, Christy Moore, Arlo
Guthrie, Spiers and Boden, Jacqui McShee, Joe Brown, Dick Gaughan and
Donovan with a healthy hunk of reviews of albums from artists such as
(picked at random) Chris While & Julie Mathews, Sparks, Joe Bonamassa,
Groundhogs, Steve Earle, Rainbow Chasers, Jon Boden, The new Radio
Ballads, Seth Lakeman, Liam Clancy, The Boat Band as well as Deacon
Blue, Sean Lennon, Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel... Show of Hands, in
other words an eclectic mix grouped in categories of Roots, Rock, Folk,
Blues, Singer Songwriter, Country, World, DVDs Books and Live. Dipping
into the reviews at random they seemed intelligently analytical without
the cringeworthy snarkiness of some of the fRoots reviews.


I was surprised to find myself reading some of the articles with
interest that hadn't at first seemed very appealing to me. The articles
about Shane MacGowan and Joe Brown, for instance, both presenting a
fascinating insight into two completely different worlds. And I
thoroughly - and perhaps predictably - enjoyed the Dick Gaughan and
Spiers and Boden articles.


It was also nice to see that the advertisers reflected the content of
the magazine - not specifically act for act, but type for type. There
have been times when the advertising content in fRoots looks like it's
been hijacked from a different magazine, but Rock n Reel seems to have
found its centre. I hope it keeps it.


I always liked the old Rock n Reel magazine, right from the very first
A5 hand-collated and stapled issue which I managed to get because we
were playing a folk club in Cumbria the week it was released, but it's
publishing schedule was - latterly - a little hair-raising until it
disappeared up its own fundamentals. This new revamped issue, with a new
publishing team, is out bang on time. I'm going to subscribe.


Oh, yes, I forgot to mention the covermount CD, which I haven't had time
to listen to yet... There's a covermount CD with every issue and
there's a four compilation CD offer for new subscribers.

Finished the magazine and it is great. Wonderful interviews and excellent reviews. If you love folk, in all it's diversity [and I apologise for using that overused word], - traditional, folk rock, folk punk, singer songwriters, etc, - then you will love the magazine.

I have also finished playing all of my 5 free CDs, which were fascinating. It's opened my ears to whole lot of new artists of whom I was not aware.
