Does anyone miss it?
but I suspect I view it with rose-tinted spectacles.
If it were still going I suspect it'd be similar to how NME is these days and I'm not sure whether I now don't read NME 'cos it's genuinely got worse or 'cos I'm just too old for it and into less-mainstream music than I used to be.
By the end it was pretty rubbish.
having Fred Durst decorating a Christmas Tree on the cover, so NO, but also yes 'the earlier stuff'.
Comparative to NME as it is now, I miss it for sure.
But would life be different if they were both around now? Who knows.
I only read it properly after it changed to being A4 size, but I thought it was awful.
When I was 16 they printed a letter I wrote slagging them off for covering so much nu-metal. How lame of me.
I used to like their messageboard though.
From 1993-1998. I didn't regret it that much. I think it made my carbon footprint a bit bigger though. Oops.
from about '95 for a few years. I didn't much care when it closed. So no - I don't think I miss it.
I was a MM reader rather than an NME reader (Mr Agreeable tipped it for me), but it went shit. I do miss Select though, and I'm sure that's not just rose-tinted hindsight.
it was an xfm mag and always had a free cd in it
after Bang stopped. I miss Bang :-(
holly's demo hell in the melody maker? or was it in nme?
i remember my sister telling me she wasn't a real person. i hope this is not true.
Julie Burchill, Paul Morley, Charles Chaar Murray, Danny Baker and Ian Penamn wrote for it. It was good then: Lots of long essays with long words.
