The Music Press

Recommended Posts

This might be a generational thing, but I really miss the "serious" music newspapers...

I long for the days when I could nip down to John Menzies and get a fresh copy of "Sounds" or "Melody Maker" or (God forbid), the "New Musical Express" and leafing merrily through it's finger-blackening pages to further increase my vast knowledge of utterly useless music trivia...

Being a forward thinking  type of person I also invested my meagre earnings in a subscription to the new fangled ("Kerrang!") magazine, a truly groudbreaking publication, conveniently aimed at patchouli-sodden, long haired, denim clad, Marillion loving pathetic individuals like myself...

Since the unfortunate demise of "Sounds", I took "Melody Maker" for a while, but now there seems to be no more specialist newspapers anymore, which is a shame...

I understand that "times have moved oan ya slavering hoor etc", but I'm not really finding anything online that's that interesting either...

Nothing of interest for me.  Not yet found any decent podcasts. 

The only thing one that I do follow is a fella called Noisey on YouTube.  He interviews all manner of musicians.  Some of his videos have been pretty good.
