I guess I just don’t get why people do magazines like this. (Note: READ is definitely not a zine. They even list an “editor-in-chief.”) READ is a long, long magazine. One-hundred pages in all. You’ve got lots of band interviews (the Sillies, the Briefs, Prevent Falls, Superdrag, etc), tons of music, book, and zine reviews. They do have a great story by Razorcake’s Sean Carswell, but I had read it before. There’s also fifteen-page story about Russian immigrants. The whole tone of the magazine was confusing. At its best, it had some funny writing and good stories. At its worst, it seemed constrained by attempts at “professionalism,” which made a lot of stuff seemed pretty forced. Je suis perplexe!
