NO SURPRISES. AGAIN: The worst kept secret in music, that the NME is going to be relauched as a smaller format magazine, has been confirmed - this week's edition will be the last tabloid music paper. They reckon the relaunch - and it is only the fourth or fifth in the last five years - will be accompanied by an investment in editorial content, which is much needed. But probably just means they're taking someone on to sub the 200 word pieces down to twenty five. Forthcoming Bowie piece to read: "He's old. He's good. But he was a bit rubbish in the middle."
MediaGuardian reports - still newsprint inside, because its not like anyone cares about anything other than the cover, is it?
