Funny you should mention this. I just finished reading Jim DeRogatis'
excellent bio of Lester Bangs, called Let It Blurt, and it made me
really really nostalgic for the days when I just bought what Creem
told me to buy. I owe so much to that magazine, and there's never
been one like it since. I'd be a slave to a mag that was just half as
- Not a bad idea. Though I'm not sure if it's a necessary one, as they're
probably doing okay as an import. Still, in comparison to other magazines'
content and cover price, you do get a lot for that $8. Sometimes too much.
<g> I picked up the current issue of Harp (Cat Power cover) and while it
looks nice, the content and depth of the articles were (for my taste) kinda
lacking and fluffy. And then there's Mojo, where you might get a dozen
pages containing a warts-and-all history of some cult band. Nice if you dig
'em, too much if you don't care. I'd like to see a domestic zine that fell
somewhere between Harp and Mojo. Or even a decent American "rock"
zine for that matter. Now *there's* a dream job- owner and publisher of
Creem Magazine. Hhmmm, I wonder who my first "Creem Dream" would

>anyone have any opinions on Paste? (the magazine, you jokers)I prefer something a bit more sophomoric. There's a little too much music
for grown-ups in that mag.
They also misspelled Rilo Kily in their headline. Whoops.
