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.
