But can the guy who publishes the news stories on NME even string a sentence together?
there are better things to be doing on a saturday night that complain about it, but i'm ill :-(
c'mon,speak up.don't be shy.it's only teh internets!
They have been feeding me with leads for a (very) long time. OK, there is much which is down-market, moronic and awful about it. There are people who write for it who wind me up no end (like Mark Beaumont), but I nevertheless do read it and listen where a point is well made.
By virtue of trying so desperately hard to be cool it does, by accident, occasionally mention and feature decent music. Luckily for me I'm a massive style whore and trend victim so there is a small area of the venn diagram where NME and I overlap.
Then again, I almost exclusively love Artrocker's cover CDs but I still think it's a woeful magazine.
Anyway, yeah, I flick through NME in the shops sometimes for interesting band names I don't know. Then try to avoid the 'NME FOUND THEM FIRST' sloganeering.
Oh, dunno why the text is so big on their site, though. Do people link to, like, a special version of the site for visually impaired people?
wanna know what a barbequeue is.
Seriously, it's as if they've hired a bunch of kids from the Remedial English class to run the NME while the bigger boys are off swanning round a festival in Berkshire.
