The Music Mag
What Is The Music Mag?
The Music Mag is the go to place for all things music. We believe that music is much more than just background noise but something that can tell a story, communicate and express emotions beyond words. We aim to share and bring light to music old and new with our music reviews that focus on both live events and new releases. Our blog covers all genres and topics relating to music ranging from underground artists with an interesting backstory to the latest music news on whats happening with your favourite artists, genres and festivals. So have a look around, The Music Mag is a place for all lovers of music. Modern music has become very diluted with cookie cutter pop music thats pumped out by labels. This has made us massive fans of the alternative music scene, enjoying everything alt. Alternative rock, alternative indie or alternative metal, we love it all.
The musicians that came from this city and its surrounding boroughs have become innovators within their own genres while keeping their attitude and sound distinctly Mancunian, and no one was the living embodiment of this fact than the late, great music producer Martin Hannett. He was the producer behind two albums from two bands that went on to influence subcultures in their own city and beyond: Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and Happy Mondays, ‘Bummed’ without having to go to London to produce such albums.
Avril Lavigne rose to prominence back in the early 2000’s when she released her debut album ‘Let Go’. The tracks on this album would turn her into a global pop punk princess. Featured tracks from the debut album included ‘Sk8er boi’, and ‘Complicated’.
