I admit I used to buy it back in secondary school, but that's because I liked having something to read during breaks, and the only music mags back then I could actually afford were NME and Kerrang!, with Kerrang! not really being for me. I used to know a guy who used to buy it religiously and follow anything they were following. Back in the MySpace days, he took a picture of himself posing with an issue that celebrated an anniversary of The Smiths - "The Queen Is Dead". He literally had never heard any other Smiths song than "This Charming Man"... That's the exact audience that NME is for. I remember the picture got put on Encyclopedia Dramatica at some point, I'm not sure if it's there still.
A friends friend who added me on Facebook is a bit like that, she's really young though, so she has time though..."Opened a cloest door and a pair of trousers spinning around no wind or anything just trousers spinning." - WAYNE

If you're under 18, it's fine to be like that I think, just because everyone's a bit weird about fitting in and finding their place and finding their clique and all that at that age.
I used to buy Kerrang!. That was more my sort of scene. I think I bought NME once or twice, and couldn't be doing with it. That that particular time, it was getting it's all moist downstairs fetishizing everything that happened in the 1990's to a ludicrous degree, and condemning everything that happened after 1997 as artless and unworthy.

I've always liked Q magazine personally.

Rock Sound is the only music magazine I'm interested in now.

My NME days were back when the whole White Stripes/Strokes/Anything the Strokes likes hype was taking place, I didn't even have internet access (dark days) so it was my only source of music news. There were a ton of good bands covered but, as Chancock said, it was just solely because it was fashionable. It was pretty noticeable after a while. They used to have a list like every two weeks too. And don't get me started on the ''cool list''.
I always recommend Mojo but some people don't like the focus on older stuff, which I get. I could read a Dylan feature every month though.Self pity and conceit are not wrong. Your mother was in error.

Last FM, Youtube and Dailymotion mostly. Also general word of mouth. That said I prefer older music and chinese and Japanese music. The later of which is not much written about in the western press.
Smith & Wesson Special, the only bullet you need to know about.

I have to admit to buying NME and Melody Maker back when I was in college.We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, but violence is practiced in broad daylight.John Lennon

I used to buy the Australian Kerrang! (yes, there was one) when I was in school. It was actually about the bands I liked, and it was great for me as a musical noob because it introduced me to a lot of stuff that I ended up liking. This was 5, 6, 7 years ago though, it closed down in Australia.
This thread is good for me though, because since I stopped reading magazines and listening to the radio and stuff I havent got into much new music for years now. And I dont know where to look. My problem is that I dont really like whats "in" at the moment, the indie bands and electro and dance music and the terrible current r'n'b.
