Iconic photography, great bands
Not long enough
NME - The fact that the NME is the only weekly magazine covering indie music still in existence does tend to recommend it. The fact that they've ended their feud with Morrissey is an even bigger recommendation. The fact that it is responsible for me finding some of my favourite bands of the moment such as The Libertines, the Killers, the Moldy Peaches and Interpol means that I certainly don't mind buying it for the reviews.
On the whole, while I wish the magazine had more written content, more in-depth interviews and less focus on Pete Doherty's messy personal life, it really does keep you up to date with what's current in indie music and for that it must be praised.
