Do you read music magazines? (Dissertation help please!)

Recommended Posts

done. I'd have put classic rock on the list of magazines though, which was one of the few to show an increase in it's ABC figure year on year I believe.

I did this as I regularly read NME despite loathing a lot of what is printed in it (I enjoy having a weekly music press and despite all the shit, there's some occasionally great journalism). I also sympathise with your plight as I'm doing a dissertation on independent subculture so covering some of the same areas.

Could have done with an 'undecided' option in the next election area though as I voted in the last one but don't know who I'll vote for in the next yet. I just filled it in on the 'other' section.

I'd also have liked to have seen clarification of what I'd selected as I voted SNP in the last election which was dangerously close to BNP and I would not like anyone to believe I was a BNP supporter due to scattershot clicking!

All in all a good survey though.

Thank for the responses. Yep, it's Publishing with Journalism although the main body of the dissertation is to link politics and music, in particular the NME and it's fight against far right politics and compare it to other magazines on the go. I realised I missed a few key ones when listing (Rock Sound, The Word), so apologies. To do this I also was interested in seeing if NME readers share interests/values when it comes to politics but to analyse this I need to compare this to that of readers of other music magazines.

Someone responded with the question "its none of your business" to the who did you vote for question. I just want to point out you don't have to leave your details and there is an option for I'd rather not say (or of course you can just ignore the question completely if you'd rather I think)

cheers!

I filled this out. I'd be quite interested in seeing the results if you could post them? In fact, I'd be quite keen to read your dissertation...

Done. I used to buy loads of magazines but don't really buy any now I have the interweb. Surprised there wasn't a question along those lines but maybe you don't care.

i used to buy the nme and melody maker religiously (and before that record mirror and sounds), i still occasionally buy nme and always regret it as most of whats in it usually involves hamming up some 2 bit indie band to be 'the best new band in britain'

i miss melody maker and record maker but times change and i mainly use the net to seek out new music these days

Select was actually quite good, sort of like Vox but not shit.

Yeah.

I also think Select was a bit of an influence on Vice.
