This here is a comment from the NME‘s publishing director Emily Hutchings, about the fact the NME‘s editor Krissi Murison is set to leave the title:
Everyone at NME is obviously sad to see a talent like Krissi go but due to her great achievements while working as editor she leaves NME in great health and the brand is stronger than ever. [Source: The Guardian]
Brand? BRAND?!! It’s a motherfucking music paper, you corporate assholes. Bangs wept, and they wonder why its sales are down, year on year.
Give it to me, you myopic pricks. We’d blaze a trail so brief and so glorious people’d be talking about it for decades to come.
