Sells guitars/instruments, closed down all their shops last year so this is an interesting move
(Fetches hat and umbrella) ‘And now to Dawsons, to pick up my bimonthly copy of the NME!’
“They’re up Dawsons Creek without a paddle!”
*work in progress
Nope, could be an interesting idea though. I write for it but still have to go and hunt one down in the wild when it comes out!
Less petrol used than vinyl
You should run that one up the flagpole.
I miss lots of issues cos im not into town very often anymore and now Starr etc is moved less chance of me being in.
Might help with costs at least even if it was what like a £1 an issue and postage. £20 a year?
A record will get played for decades, this will get thrown in the recycling at the end of the week
Pretty wasteful to get music articles and reviews pressed to vinyl imo tbh
Yeah. I keep some magazines for years (Huck, Delayed Gratification, special editions of New Statesman, etc) and recycle them.
Vinyl takes a 1000 years to decompose.
I adore magazines. I find reading online suboptimal. Partly because you don’t stumble across reading something that’s been given space by the editors or read all the album reviews rather than just clicking on familiar names.
Print media lol
NME now taking sponsored ads from Viagogo. A new low.
If you’re not aware of the Fan Fair Alliance, they’ve been calling this out
I love flicking through magazines/papers. For so many reasons, but discovering without having to search out being one of them.
I’m still plotting a one off / annual DiS magazine with maybe a hardback book and newspaper edition option.
The relaunch of NME in print arrives a couple of months after BandLab Technologies raised USD $25 million in its Series B1 financing round, valuing the company at $425 million.
Had a lot more to say than is in this article, but spoke to New Statesman about return of the NME to print
interested in what this says but paywall =
