DiS can reveal that seminal American rock rag, once edited by Lester Bangs and contributed to by Cameron Crowe, Creem, is soon to be back!
Totally by accident we stumbled across creemmagazine.com where new and classic samples sit side by side. A message there reads "Lock the doors, hide your children, we're back! We're back to show kids around the world it's OK again to pick up guitars and make some fucking noise"
We obviously didn't believe it. So we got in touch with the peeps behind the mag who said:
"Yes, indeedie CREEM be hitting the streets again soon. We really just wanted to throw a couple things up there on the website to mark our turf. We have been busy going thru the boxes in Boy Howdy's basement looking for the archives, now it's time to find the new recruits and get on with it. Keep an eye on the dot com and we'll let you know what's going on."
Sounds good to us. Long live rock crit!
DiScuss: How do you feel about this? Is this extreme back in the dayness, hardcore 70s retroism, nostalgia raping? How many established mags will this kill? (I can think of one in particular we'd be better off without) Will this be better than the likes of Careless Talk and new monthly BANG?
