Shindig! Magazine’s New Title.

Shindig! Magazine -- Sept.-Oct. 2010, issue 18.

When you’re disconnected from the internet and not able to read the Electric Comic Book (which, in this day and age, should be never), may I recommend a title from across the pond called Shindig!. They’ve only existed for a short while (their latest pictured above, September-October 2010 issue is the 18th), and here in the states, it can be pretty pricey (the exchange from £4.95 turns into $10.00 in the U.S.).

However, I’d like to bring this magazine to your attention not just because they get to be a little more comprehensive with more unknowns, could-have-beens, and the occasional never-was bands, but in this particular issue they’ve added a second title packaged to the magazine called Happening! that covers new music, scenes, fashions, etc.. and it proves itself well worth the read. Plus, they’ve started offering a free zip-file of 21 tracks of songs with each issue, which you can check out here.

And in particular, this issue has a feature on the Remains, who are just about the greatest band from the early Beatles era still making a go of it today (who isn’t the Sonics, that is).

You can find it in most independent record stores, and a few choice book stores.

  1. Thanks for the coverage.

  2. Thanks for your kind words on my Remains piece. Theirs is a fascinating story of the fickle missed-it-by-that-much nature of fame. (I also wrote Shindig’s cover story two issues ago on Paul Revere and the Raiders.)
