New Vintage Rock magazine hits shelves

Shindig! covers psych, prog, garage, beat, soul, folk...but we rarely touch on 50s rock'n'roll and rockabilly. Clearly a gap in the market you may surmise, and it looks like one that's just been filled by new quarterly Vintage Rock.

It's brought to you from the same people who recently launched the Burlesque Bible quarterly. Issue one has all you would expect from a glossy magazine: news section, features on the early days of Elvis, an interesting piece on the beginnings of rock'n'roll in the UK, 50 Best Rockabilly Tracks, lovely pieces on Jet Harris, Duane Eddy and Alexis Korner, some indifferent 'guide to' pieces for the beginners, a review of the Hemsby weekender, and much much more within its 116 pages. The only thing we seem to be missing is a music reviews section.

The magazine hits the shelves of WHSmiths today, costing £5.99. You can subscribe here. Their website isn't up and running quite yet, but there is Facebook page here nonetheless.
