Consumable stopped publication in August, 2001. Take a look: remember this was mostly an emailed publication, plain text, sometimes photos, but no flashy websites and certainly not loads of advertisements.
Here's an example of what a subscriber received:
(My bit's at the end, about Sisters of Mercy.)
Amazingly, a lot of the publication is still available online: http://www.westnet.com/consumable/
Here are a few of mine:
- Malcolm McClaren, "Paris"
- Peter Finger, "Between the Lines" (amazing guitarist)
- Jimmy Somerville, "Dare to Love" (read this in the context of the European age-of-consent, which is 16, not 18 like here in the USA)
- Buzzcocks, "All Set"
- and more if you search for them...
So yeah, I've been doing this for longer than you knew. Under various names. Who'da thunkit?
