that new magazine. What do you think?
I bought issue two last week. It's okay, it all seems to be written by about 2 guys, which is made really obvious in the reviews section where every review seems to be followed by 'Barney Jameson' (I think he's called).
It has some good reviews and interviews, but it also has shitty 'comedy' Loaded-style bits where the staff ride speakers down hills and write about how 'crazy' they are. These bits get more words dedicated than their interview with the Deftones... And they have a Vice style 'interesting people we met this month' bit, populated by some of the dullest-looking people I've ever seen. And there's some really grating fact-errors, like the Levellers being an Irish band, but I suppose that's what happens when you only have two members of staff!
So yeah, it's okay for a thumb-through but they need to reign in the 'wow aren't we wacky' journo-exploits sections a bit, and get a decent spell-checker. They love DiS though, it seems...
