Sounds was a long-term UK weekly pop/rock music newspaper, published from 10 October 1970 to 6 April 1991. It was produced by Spotlight Publications (part of Morgan Grampian), which was set up by Jack Hutton and Peter Wilkinson, who left Melody Maker to start their own company. Sounds was their first project, a weekly paper devoted to progressive rock and described by Hutton, to those he was attempting to recruit from his former publication, as "a leftwing Melody Maker". Sounds was intended to be a weekly rival to titles such as Melody Maker and New Musical Express (NME). It was well known for giving away posters in the centre of the paper (initially black and white, but colour from late 1971) and later for covering heavy metal (especially the new wave of British heavy metal (NWOBHM)) and

  • Das britische Musikmagazin Sounds war eine wöchentlich erscheinende Zeitschrift für populäre Musik, die 1970 zum ersten Mal erschien. Um 1980 wurde Sounds für seine Berichte über harte Gitarrenmusik (Hardrock, New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Punk, Oi!) bekannt. 1981 erschien zum ersten mal die Heavy Metal-Beilage Kerrang!, die als Spin-off eigenständig wurde und bis heute existiert. Lange Zeit galt das Magazin neben dem Melody Maker und dem NME als eine der drei wichtigsten Pop/Rock-Publikationen in Großbritannien. Beim Sounds wirkten einige heute prominente Federn mit wie Gary Bushell und der Comiczeichner Alan Moore. 1991 wurde das Magazin wegen sinkender Verkäufe eingestellt. (de)

It was well known for giving away posters in the centre of the paper (initially black and white, but colour from late 1971) and later for covering heavy metal (especially the new wave of British heavy metal (NWOBHM)) and Oi! music in its late 1970s–early 1980s heyday. Sounds was the first music paper in its coverage of punk; while maintaining its reputation for getting there first, John Robb covered the Manchester music scene for Sounds and came up with the term "Britpop". The paper's editors realised the importance of its regional audience and had freelancers across the UK contributing gig reviews and articles about up-and-coming local bands. Keith Cameron wrote about Nirvana after Robb carried out the first ever interview with them. One of the "trinity" of British music weeklies, along with NME and Melody Maker, Sounds folded in 1991 after the parent company, United Newspapers, sold all their music titles to EMAP Metro. Morgan-Grampian had been acquired by United Business Media – then known as United News and Media – in 1987, first as part of the United Advertising Publications (UAP) division and later as part of the then CMP Information portfolio. A legacy of Sounds was the creation of the heavy metal/rock magazine Kerrang!, which was originally issued as a supplement before being spun off as a separate publication. Contributors included Garry Bushell, Geoff Barton, John Robb, Mick Sinclair, Caroline Coon, Antonella Gambotto, Vivien Goldman, Jonh Ingham, Alan Moore (aka "Curt Vile"), Lizo Mzimba, John Peel, Barbara Charone, Edwin Pouncey (aka "Savage Pencil"), Cathi Unsworth, Jon Ronson, Ian Ravendale, Jon Savage, Sylvie Simmons, Penny Valentine, Marguerite Van Cook, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mat Snow, James Brown (who went on to form Loaded), Andy Ross (who wrote as 'Andy Hurt' and went on to form Food Records) Steve Lamacq, Dave Massey (who wrote for all of the 'trinity' and went on to become a successful A&R executive), Chris Roberts , Kev F. Sutherland and Russ Carvell's UT strip, Photographers Andy Phillips, Virginia Turbett, Paul Slattery, Ross Halfin, Janette Beckman. (en)
  • Sounds fue una revista británica de música, publicada semanalmente desde el 10 de octubre de 1970 hasta el 6 de abril de 1991. Era conocida inicialmente por dar posters (al principio en blanco y negro, pero en color desde 1971) y después por encubrir música Heavy metal (especialmente la nueva ola del heavy metal británico (NWOBHM por sus siglas en inglés) y música Oi! a finales de los 70. Sounds fue la primera revista musical en su encubrimiento del punk y a finales de los ochenta mantuvo su reputación por estar ahí primero cuando John Robb encubrió Mánchester y cuando Keith Cameron escribió sobre Nirvana antes que nadie. Fue la primera revista británica en poner a Nirvana en la cubierta. Fue una de la trinidad de revistas británicas semanales, junto con New Musical Express (NME) y Melody Maker, hasta que finalmente se terminó en 1991 cuando United Newspapers (compañía responsable de Sounds) vendió todos sus títulos a EMAP. Irónicamente su circulación estaba empezando a aumentar gradualmente en sus últimos meses de vida. Un legado de Sounds fue la creación de una nueva revista de Heavy metal y Rock: Kerrang!, que fue originalmente creada como suplemento antes de ser una publicación separada, que continúa hasta estos días. Algunos colaboradores eran Keith Altham, Garry Bushell, Geoff Barton, John Gill, Tommy Udo, Barbara Charone, Caroline Coon, Andrew Courtney, Jonathan Knight, Antonella Gambotto, Jerry Gilbert, Vivien Goldman, Jonh Ingham, Alan Moore (alias "Curt Vile"), Jon Newey, Mick Middles, John Robb, John Peel, Edwin Pouncey (alias "Savage Pencil" o "Lápiz Salvaje"), Penny Reel, Cathi Unsworth, Jon Ronson, Robin Gibson, Jon Savage, Peter Silverton, Sylvie Simmons, Steve Sommer, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mat Snow, James Brown, Steve Lamacq, Keith Cameron, Leo Finlay, Ann Scanlon, Sandy Robertson, Dave McCulloch, Jane Suck (nee Jackman), Phil Sutcliffe, junto con los fotógrafos Penny Valentine, Janette Beckman, Steve Gullick, Leo Regan, Steve Double y Gus Stewart.

  • Sounds fait partie dans les années 1970 d'un des trois principaux hebdomadaires musicaux avec le Melody Maker et le New Musical Express. Face à ses deux rivaux plus anciens et aux choix musicaux plus conformistes, Sounds choisit de se consacrer au heavy metal. Par la suite, il s'ouvre à d'autres courants musicaux et notamment à la vague du punk rock. En 1977, Sounds est ainsi le premier magazine à écrire sur la scène punk et reste fidèle à ce mouvement, puisque son rédacteur en chef, Garry Bushell, est un des rares journalistes anglais à s'intéresser à la scène Oi! qui prend de l'ampleur en Angleterre au début du thatcherisme. Le New Musical Express accuse alors Bushell d'être un fasciste et ce dernier est obligé de contre-attaquer par un procès et une lettre qu'il publie dans son journal ou il affirme être « un socialiste, un syndicaliste et un patriote ». Le premier numéro de Sounds a été publié du 10 octobre 1970 et le dernier est sorti le 6 avril 1991 au Royaume-Uni. (fr)
  • Sounds era il nome di una rivista musicale britannica, che uscì settimanalmente tra il 10 ottobre 1970 ed il 6 aprile 1991. Divenne nota inizialmente per l'inclusione di poster nel mezzo del giornale (all'inizio in bianco e nero, poi a colori dalla fine del 1971), e poi come rivista specialistica della musica heavy metal (e in particolare della New Wave of British Heavy Metal o NWOBHM) ed Oi!, tra la fine degli anni settanta e l'inizio degli ottanta. Sounds fu la prima rivista ad occuparsi di punk, e verso la fine degli anni 80 mantenne la sua reputazione per essere stata la prima a vantare tra i suoi collaboratori John Robb e Keith Cameron con la sua biografia dei Nirvana. Fu anche la prima rivista britannica a dedicare una sua copertina ai Nirvana. Fu uno dei tre settimanali musicali britannici più diffusi assieme a New Musical Express (NME) e Melody Maker, ma smise di uscire nel 1991 dopo che la compagnia madre, la United Newspapers, vendette tutti i titoli alla EMAP e chiuse Sounds. Ironicamente, le vendite della rivista avevano cominciato ad aumentare proprio pochi mesi prima della sua chiusura. Un'eredità di Sounds fu la creazione della rivista heavy metal/rock Kerrang!, che era nato originariamente come un inserto prima di acquisire una propria autonomia, e le cui vendite durano fino ad oggi.

Era bastante conhecida por trazer posters no meio do jornal (inicialmente a preto e branco, mas depois dos fins de 1971 passou a ser a cores) e posteriormente por cobrir o Heavy Metal (especialmente o New Wave of British Heavy Metal) e música Oi! nos fins da década de 1970 princípios da de 1980. O Sounds foi o primeiro jornal musical a cobrir o fenômeno Punk e nos finais dos anos 80 mantinha a reputação de descobrir os novos fenômenos musicais depois de John Robb ter coberto a "Onda de Manchester"e Keith Cameron ter escrito antes de todos acerca dos Nirvana.

  • Sounds — британский музыкальный еженедельник, выходивший с 10 октября 1970 года по 6 апреля 1991 года. От основных конкурентов — New Musical Express и Melody Maker — Sounds отличался более скромным оформлением, а также ориентацией на более жёсткую музыку: сначала — на хэви метал (особенно NWOBHM), затем на Oi! — в годы расцвета жанра, когда он практически не имел других союзников в прессе. Sounds всегда несколько уступал в популярности NME и MM, но в чём-то время от времени опережал: именно здесь появились первые объективные статьи о панк-роке, обзоры (тогда ещё набиравшей силу) манчестерской сцены (статьи Джона Робба, The Membranes), первое интервью с Nirvana. Еженедельник прекратил своё существование в 1991 году, когда компанияUnited Newspapers продала все свои издания EMAP Metro и последняя решила его закрыть. По иронии судьбы это произошло в тот момент, когда тираж Sounds в течение нескольких месяцев неуклонно возрастал. Именно благодаря Sounds был создан «металлический» журнал Kerrang!, поначалу выходивший в качестве приложения. В числе известных музыкальных специалистов, сотрудничавших с Sounds, были Гарри Бушелл, Джон Пил, Джефф Бартон, Томми Удо, Кэролайн Кун, Джон Робб, Джон Сэвидж, Стив Ламак, Кейт Кэмерон. (ru)
