Do you think it'll ever revert to its old position and style again? I don't mean newspaper jobbies, but do you think it'll ever stop appealling to children, and return to what it used to be?
I know its changed a lot through the years with different editors and such. But I think now, their sales will probably be higher than any time. They tend to put Radio 1 indie bands on the cover now. THE KOOKS! THE FRATELLIS TOUR MADNESS! FALL OUT BOY EXCLUSIVES! And because SO many people are now into guitar-based music, they must be making shitloads.
Even comparing today's issues to ones I bought in 2004, the articles seem to be worse. Flicking through the 04 issues, you can find at least 2 really decent long articles every three or four pages. They even addressed interesting stuff, and had people like Morrissey and Mark E Smith writing the odd article.
