Continuing in the tradition of me scanning a bunch of pages from an old magazine and whacking some tunes together in the pursuit of content. You’ll be pleased to know I’ve been fully Moderna-ed and might actually post more than 4 articles this year.
From August 1991, Kraftwerk are the cover stars, not that it might be entirely obvious as the text is all over the place and someone’s been overdoing the Deluxe Paint IV on their copy of The Robots / Robotnik from 1991.
Not the first edition of the magazine to become available to the public, I don’t seem to have that one. Or have it to hand at this point in time at least. Popular music in 1989 was slowly becoming more electronic due to the influence of club culture and DMC were wise enough to put the previously DJ only magazine on to the shelves of John Menzies & WH Smith for the great unwashed to devour and dream big of an Ibiza holiday next year. Don’t want to dwell too much on the content of the magazine as I’m mostly looking for music of the era in the little chart boxes, but I do have to mention the cartoon.
