Press Room: Review

Links Worth Listening To

Michael Deacon, Daily Telegraph, 29 Mar 2007


A groaning library of journalism from which the rock swot may take days to re-emerge, sweaty and square-eyed. The site houses more than 10,000 interviews and reviews salvaged from the major music magazines of the past 50 years. There are a fair few audio files of interviews, too, allowing the listener to thrill or shiver to the beyond-the-grave pronouncements of Johnny Cash, James Brown and the Ramones. You'll need to subscribe, though: £15 for six months' reading, £25 for a year's.
