PASTE Magazine Carries the Torch for Resonance and No Depression
Subscriber Lists Go to Paste as Other Independent Publishers Fold
Decatur, GA (June TK, 2008) -Paste magazine (www.pastemagazine.com), the fastest-growing independently published entertainment magazine in the country, recently assumed subscription lists for the closing pubs Resonance and No Depression. Though the financial burdens of operating an independently-published magazine became too much for the 14-year-old Resonance and 13-year-old No Depression, faithful readers have been taken care of through the agreements. These are the second and third subscription lists Paste has picked up in its six year history.
“We’ll miss No Depression and Resonance. The visionaries who founded
these magazines were an inspiration for Paste,” said Paste publisher
Nick Purdy. “Before we published our first issue, Grant Alden of No
Depression sat down with us to offer advice and wisdom. He and Peter
laid the groundwork for creating a music magazine that focuses on good
music and good writing, without celebrity obsession.”
Since its first issue in the fall of 1995, which contained features on the likes of Johnny Cash, Steve Earle and Shane MacGowan, No Depression has journeyed alongside its readers through the emergence of a genre of music blending rock, punk, country and folk that became known as alt-country or Americana. Resonance, based on Seattle, covered a wide spectrum of music featuring plenty of coverage of inventive indie rock and pop - sans celebrities, hype and fads.
Voted “Magazine of the Year” by the PLUG Independent Music Awards for the third consecutive year in 2008, Paste is rapidly emerging as the go-to source for devoted music and culture aficionados and is stepping up to the proverbial plate to ensure that the void left by the loss of No Depression and Resonance is filled.
