Has anyone seen the issue? Whaddya think?
almost a year after it was posted?
but I read a bit of it.
Sadly the NME seems to have rubbed off on the Mighty Boosh rather than the other way around. Noel edits the letters page, he is cruel and just not funny.
He may have been trying to be funny but it really didn't work. Some girl wrote in to complain about being trampled on at a gig and he was quite a knob.
I love the boosh. I was saddened.
I've not bought it. Having wasted £5 on the damn tempting thing this year already, I'm not prepared to sacrifice another £1.60, or whatever it is they're scrounging off music listeners these days...so I'm not at liberty to comment on the actual editing.
But I am at liberty to comment on their involvement at all. It just seems more than slightly ironic that a duo concerned with Nathan Barley could bring themselves to write for ANY music magazine. When I saw the issue in Co-op my immediate reaction was "CASH IN! CASH IN!" and I expect it's exactly that - whether it's a cash in on the behalf of the Boosh or NME is another discussion. One of them's a sinking ship and unfortunately it's taking the other one down with it.
I blame Peaches Geldof.
