NME sales decline

New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 1,740 views

NME sales decline: they’ve been concentrating on the online market – and it shows, nme.com is about twice as good as the print version. I of course can see how their online readership’s going too due to my job working for THE MAN (though I’m not allowed to tell you) – I would be interested to know where the revenue is meant to be coming from website-wise, though.

One particular quote stood out rather: “with the rock and hip-hop crossover, NME has fortunately found a type of dance music that’s acceptable to cover.”. ‘Acceptable’ – what a lovely choice of word. (via No Rock And Roll Fun, which is an excellent weblog)

First review I’ve seen

First review I’ve seen of the new Nick Cave record. I’m not particularly fussed but I know some of you lovelies are.

I am, as they say, prickly at the moment, despite some good fortune yesterday, and so have been snappy on the forum and frothed into absurd irritation by the likes of the Pazz And Jop Poll. So it is probably not a good day for me to look at college radio directors’ lists of best ever albums. (via DJ Martian)

Many have toyed with the idea

Many have toyed with the idea of reviewing 69 Love Songs track-by-track…..Josh Blog is actually doing it.
