I’m gutted. I’ve just learnt that Volume Mag will soon be no longer. Issue number 33 will be the last. This was a worthy addition to the local musical scene, full of interesting stuff, reviews, eclectic shit. Of the 32 issues that came out I guess I got to scan say 20 and there wasn’t one I could point to and say I wasn’t edified in some way. Clearly it can’t have been making $’s for its masters, media moguls APN Group. ‘No money in it’ is probably overall the theme-song for N.Z Music as a whole. In its seven month existence head honco Sam Wicks and his team of writers did a splendid job and deserve our accolades. Let’s hope someone takes this ball and runs with it.
