Melody Maker Staff Choices Part One 24th - 31st December 1988

Melody Maker Staff Picks, 24th – 31st December, 1988 (part one)

It was 20 years ago today…well almost – time is indeed a cruel mistress.

One of the biggest impressions you’re left with looking back on these earlier issues, is just how much bloody copy they contain. I’m guessing wildly but I reckon there’s as many words in this single issue as 6 months worth of “copy” from the NME now. Not that I read the NME now but y’know…is this what’s called progress?

I’m going to put up some of the tracks mentioned in the coming part 2 and 3 posts. Interesting to speculate if Stubbs would still stand by that Joe le Taxi inclusion? As for Carol…what was she thinking?
