Suede, the NME and music news

The NME have an interview with Suede, who are talking about the NME. The interview ends up being about the changing format of music news. The discussion revolves around the availability of music news. The weekly newspaper was seen as a rapid and responsive outlet, this obviously now looks slow with web developments and cultural speed-up. It’s interesting that they note the influence that weekly music newspapers had on their tastes and music purchasing (as well as on their own fame). It does suggest the question concerning the way that new media might be shaping tastes in new ways. It is also illustrative of how music cultures have been reshape by transformations in media. This is not just about music downloading, it is also about the changing dissemination of music news.
