THE WRITE PLACEYOUwrite -we decipher
A N E D I T O R S I D E A ) Summer is here, or it will be by the time you read this. Rain beats on the &of of our office with its usual cheerful sound (we picked these rooms for their acoustics). So it's a good time to look ahead. We have issues comiw'up thw should make your eyes, let alone your ears, pop: the next Wires will shake the music world. Well, something like that. But be assured that we have some remarkable material for you.
If you'd like to help us out, there's a simple method: take out a at's subscription. 16 notes sounds like a lot to fork out in one go,but consider - it's the same as three LPs, one book or one dinner at your local trat, And we reckon it's better value than any of those - 12 issues of the most exciting music mog sent straight to your door (you get it quicker that way, too). No more worries about missing a copy. You can take advantage of the book offer we're mnnirlg just now (see page 48). And we make an excellent present for friends who wan* to get into the music. l
There's more rejoicing in the office over one new s u b s c r i k than there is over 100 newsstand sales. Join the elite!
