Music ones or otherwise.
Just music then.
That's all i read.
I don't like it.
Maximum RocknRoll (sometimes)
Last Hours (if I see it at a gig, etc)
I quite like Wire/Filter on occasion, but, usually just read it in Borders.
I used to LOVE Punk Planet, Heart Attack and Fracture, but, now they're all RIP.
I've been looking for it for ages. Do you remember their mock up Kerrang cover?
I read The Wire every month, sometimes buy Plan B, bought Rock A Rolla a few times and buy Specialten (although it's not really a magazine).
suggests that Fracture is not around anymore.
I have the last issue somewhere, it was such a great fanzine, a true labour of love and totally free.
Just a pity that some record labels brought about their demise by failing to pay for advertising.
ruled. not so good anymore.
and I subscribe to The Economist, however they refer to themselves as a newspaper so I'm not sure if that counts.
...t'internet has somewhat surplanted them...
But I read The New Statesman (it's very good magazine if you ignore the occasional overly-socialist Alan Johnston/Ken Livingstone interviews) and Spin Cricket Magazine regularly.
plan b and dazed & confused semi-regularly. lots of other ones i just buy when i feel like it.
Especially when it was printed on that buttercream-coloured paper.
Such a lot of the bands I like now are ones I first heard on CWAS cover CD's.
or is that a paper?
I'd say it counts.
Im registering another vote for Boxing Monthly, but music wise it'd be Artrocker, NME (gets delivered and as much as Im growing to hate it more each week I cant be arsed cancelling it) then Fly which is probably the best and free.
I bought Blender when I was in USA, what a load of shit that is.
The Orphan Leaf Review
I like obscure semi-pretentious literary magazines.
Little White Lies (movie magazine) if it looks good.
and 'harrowing real life stories' (eg. pick me up, love it! etc) whenever I can get them.
The net is where its at....Which is kind of sad in a way.
best music zine ive ever read. just my kind of thing
Only Punk Planet betters Skyscraper.
Just a pity it's quarterly rather than monthly.
borrowed empire and total film.
Loud & Quiet (well one edition, now temp suspended)
and the internet
Nme & Rhythm, my monthly drummers mag!
That's about it.
I dont read any music publications. All shit.
I subscribe to Empire (films) and Four Four Two (football). And read the Sun.
although when it first appeared over here I think it was the American version, whereas now we get the British version.
Which is like Alex and Alexa trying to crack the same jokes as Simon and Macquita (sp?). 90% of it is cringingly bad.
Oh, and i read Psychologies when my gf buys it.
or Total Film, occasionally a music magazine.
It's rather good and usually has a great CD. See the recent Devandra Banhart-compiled one and the Neil Young covers album.
Cover to cover every month. I struggle with Music magazines, I bought this month's Clash the other day and it's pretty terrible despite looking nice.
arthur (is that still going?? i can never find it anymore!)
The Stool Pigeon
Plan B (got a 6 month subscription in fact)
The Wire (most months)
The Stool Pigeon (when I can find it, living out of london it's never at the stockists listed on the website!)
Specialten (whenever I can)
I collected VOGUE for a few years... I had about four years worth of magazines but when I moved house, realised that it would have been ridiculous to move them all.. so parted ways rather reluctantly.
Same with Wallpaper* (and in Australia, BluPrint which is an architectural digest, and DesignWeek)
Ummm... nowadays it's Marketing Week... Ocassional scan of The Economist and FT.
I'll pick up FACT and Stool Pigeon when I can... as well as One Week To Live. I'll even sometimes buy the odd electronic music geek mag.
And I find that I buy Grazia every now and then.
I don't buy Now or Heat anymore (did when they launched) because I find that when I go down the mega trashy magazine route, this is a sign that something is missing or wrong in my life. History and patterns have shown this. In fact, it's a great indicator and way of keeping check on myself!
Sometimes I'll buy iD...
Sunday papers are good. The Style Section in The Sunday Times is great... I feel unsettled if I don't read a Sunday newspaper.. it creates a certain edge to my weekend.
I'm also a fan of The Guardian Guide.
narc, the insider the crack (free ones)
dreamland sound on sound
Used to get this on a very irregular basis and I always enjoyed their reviews (usually a slagging off). Don't think they go into print anymore so I have to look at their web site. They seem to obsessed with Jodie Marsh recently
Stool Pigeon, Private Eye & my girl's copies of the NME and Heat.
But yeah, as someone else said earlier, the internet is much more useful, if less tactile.
is really good and free
Plan B is great
Got a nice zine called Freak Kingdom today, its not bad for the first issue and its free
