Those of you who are old enough might remember Synapse magazine. When electronic music represented the brave new frontier of sound, Synapse was the leading source documenting this movement in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Zappa, Eno, Fripp, Stockhausen, Devo and other artists famous enough to be referred to only by their surnames, adorned their covers along with Tonto, , Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and more. It was the new music magazine I would’ve wanted to produce and write for. And notable writers did, among them Kurt Loder and David Fricke. Bruce Warren from Echoes affiliate WXPN and somevelvetblog just emailed me that an archive of Synapse magazines has been put on-line for you to peruse at Dangerous Minds. If you want some great interviews with artists who were the pioneers of electronic music, go and read. They’re on the Dangerous Minds website.
