Newspaper. Used - Very Good. Item #237458



(Eleven & 1/2-inch x Fourteen & 3/4-inch) Mild wear from near 40 years of loving use, luckily for all, the last decade or two was spent in a box and/or filing cabinet drawer. A few tears. New York Rocker was probably my favorite music magazine for the entirety of its run, 1976 - 1982, a total of 54 issues. Part of what made NYRocker so damned good was the fact that some of its key contributors were also some of the most best and smartest musicians within the NYC music community, in particular Ira Robbins co-founder of Yo La Tengo, workhorse Hobokon, NJ band formed in 1984 and still going, still making good music as I type in 2020. The same three members they started with appear on their more than a dozen studio albums. Somewhat less obvious, but equally important for my money is the NYRocker Book Reviewer Philip Dray who was for many years a member of the excellent NYC no wave/avant-garde jug band (the later is according to the discog site), The Scene Is Now. Prior to the decades Dray played in The Scene Is Now he was a member of formative No Wave band, Information with Rick Brown & Chris Nelson and writer for formative, legendary fanzine, No magazine.
