End of the NME Magazine

You will have probably seen in the media that the NME magazine is being discontinued (however, the website is remaining). I haven't bought it for years because most of the bands I enjoyed reading about haven't really been active. I bought it religiously from around 1995 to 2002 and in fairness I can say that it did introduce me to a few new bands/material i.e. I bought an album by Gomez on the strength of one single and the NME reviews. To be honest, the only outright bad thing I remember looking back is that it once went through a couple of months of featuring an inexplicably high amount of Oasis.

They always seemed to feature a decent amount of Pulp as well, even during the relatively quiet periods. Also, Pulp were regularly featured on the free tapes/CDs they gave out with the magazines.

Anyway, it would be nice to hear peoples' reflections. I'll leave you with this...

Yeah... It really used to mean something didn't it? Indispensible during the Country House / Roll with it incident. Probably stopped buying it around 2003. It's been a ghost of itself since it went gratis though - I've picked up a fair number during my commute and apart from the interview with its cover star there'd be maybe 4 A4 pages of music at most.
