I remember this mag - it was a staple a Chez lumsden as a kid - I would get this and my friend would get C&VG or Crash and we'd swap - 85p being a lot in those far off days.

the only cassettes I own I bought at car boots as little bits of tat to put around my office at home - it's not a living working format to me.

the frey cover actually reminds me of an specific old xmas cover from Crash - is it some sort of re-work? And snow on the logo - now that's the sort of class we love here at chez Lumsden! (mind you havent seen it in flesh yet).

when will us pleb-like mere mortals (ie: non-subscribers) be able to stroll into smiths and grab greedily for a copy ? I can't wait - last year's xmas issue was simply amazing.
