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
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
are probably not going to have first time buyers
coming back for more
when they find out it isn't like Spin.
