RIP NME.

Friday 9th March will be the last print edition.

Will continue online - https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... c-magazine

Before the interweb, this was how I found out about concerts and tours.

Ah, sad news, I suppose there was little point to it with the internet.

<Globus> I built and installed the frames for their 60th birthday exhibition in the neo bankside building <globus>

Strange publication. Started as Jazz and then was for older pop (NME perceived as yoof) and then became the kiddies mag.

In the 90's and 2000's it was just a pretentious rag that raged against anything remotely popular while promoting plenty of shite just because they started with 3 guitars in a basement somewhere.

Did you lose interest when it was no longer a jazz mag?

Morrissey should buy it and relaunch it as a Britain First fanzine. For the lolz.

Always thought they were both a bit Try-Hard-Smash-Hits for the “Music is seeeeerious” crowd. But that was the 90s, all the good rock writing seemed to be in the monthly mags by then. And not always even there.

One of the sad things about a rapid divorce is that you leave things behind. I'd got a right collection of NME and MM mags which have probably hit the furnace.

Plus rare Oz magazines and a full collection of Private Eye from issue 1.

But life moves on.

I have Bill Tidy's book of the Cloggies though. The man in the black hat bears my name.

In the days they were relevant, the NME and MM were not mags. They were a weekly newspaper format. You know that, of course.

I do. I miss them. They were part of my life.

I'm very much in agreement with Frank Zappa's opinion on such publications.

Really enjoyed reading NME as a teen. Back then the scenes were almost unreachable. Import CDs were expensive and took weeks to arrive. Everything gained was treasured.

My window on the musical world in the late 70s-early 80s...(my OCD use of ellipses started out as a reference to the Three Dots from the "Thrills" back-page gossip column...)

Have a guess who sold me some rather dodgy records.

I did a mortgage for another.

We met the former at Anegada. A few years ago.

It's my history. There's nothing very obvious about me.

I used to love getting the NME and reading it on my way to school. Earliest one I remember reading showed the Alison Brothers reach number one with Are You Sure around 1961 I think.

Read it through the first half of the ‘80s. It was highly entertaining.
