      I think that you are wrong on this point.
      Many readers (me among them) enjoy "pop" articles
      in the Wire.

      There are other publications with a more
      in-depth approach towards modern

      Yo La Tengo is pretty useless, but I can see why they
      would put them
      on the cover instead of Kagel, who was in the same
      issue. On the
      other hand, if some indie schmoe picks up the Yo La
      Tengo issue, are
      they really going to like the Kagel, Asmsus Tietchens,
      The Ex, etc
      that was in that issue? I think the magazine has
      pretty much found
      its audience, so they shouldn't be afraid of putting
      more obscure
      artists on the cover. People who like the magazine are
      going to buy
      it regardless of who's on the cover, and the few extra
      sales they may
      get from a Yo La Tengo, Radiohead, Mercury Rev, or DJ
      Shadow cover
      are probably not going to have first time buyers
      coming back for more
      when they find out it isn't like Spin.
