NME No More!

During my early teenage years, I used to ride my sunshine yellow BSA Javelin through the mean streets of Abronhill in Cumbernauld with a Daily Record shoulder strap bag weighing me down with the up-to-the-minute latest news for the early risers, and then later on, the evening editions, magazines and weekly publications. Only one of my customers had the good taste of taking the NME, ensuring that once a week, a combination of shortcuts and Eddy Merckx style cycling was required to give me a stolen 10 minutes to hide up a close to read through the gig guides, “when will The Jam next play the Glasgow Apollo?”, and to catch up with Paul Weller’s Private Hell, and other headlines of interest. What was your memories of the NME, or were you a Melody Maker?
