Unexpected news. Oddly, it’s exclusive to Dawsons but I can’t find hardly any stores on google maps and their online store isn’t open yet
If its in newspaper form I’m all over it, even if the writing is still shite.
Wan’t one of the supposed reasons for its decline was that things were not covered fast enough with weekly print as opposed to the internet? i’m sure bi monthly is the way to go then…
I think that is a great format for a music mag, so was quite surprised that The Pitchfork Review was a bit of a flop. Not sure NME could make it work.
There’s a lot of money behind NME nowadays
if you wanted to you could argue that almost anything in life was unnecessary
like this this post of mine
Also here’s a Figma board that’s worth a look to see where the money is coming from for various big music orgs https://www.figma.com/file/J8sUNwKITwX5yFzTb1KAWP/Music-Rights-%2B-Tech-Ownership-Chart?node-id=0%3A1&t=VuMbNs1B5E1MbAYj-1
It might do alright.
Theres enough good quality music magazines/papers in print for me already tho (many free!) so I’ll not be looking for it.
It’ll be nice for people to get bi-monthly updates on what Pete Doherty and the lad from The Others have been up to again though
Which magazines do you get?
Assuming you’re a https://www.goldflakepaint.co.uk/ reader?
Have dabbled. Big fan of the journal he worked on with Idlewild obvs.
I’m not a devotee but pick these up when I’m in shops/spaces that have them:
Loud & Quiet
The Thin Air
and maybe the odd ‘established’ newsagent distro magazine if theres something good in them. (usually if theres a cool CD etc - I get the digital copies of a few through library membership)
Bimonthly, there will be a new edition on the first and last days of each month
What the hell is Dawsons
Bringing back a defunct magazine sold exclusively through a defunct shop is an interesting move
Music instrument shop or it was don’t know if they are diversifying
Like Greggs but better.
I’m gonna bring back Alternative Ulster and sell it exclusively through Crazy Prices.
What a great bunch of lads
Why would I read anything else?
in fact - do they do a sub like Loud & Quiet do?
Imagine NI based flexi bonus (locals and visiting acts!)
