|It was through the pages of this title that I found out about more
underground and adventurous artists like Neil Hamburger, Fred
Lane, Raymond Scott, The Friends Of Dean Martinez, The
Coctails and so much more. The scale here was more on
WFMU side of things than just the Dr. D stuff I’ve grown up with.
In fact, this title became a guide for me as I use to circle many
titles from their vast review section for future purchases.
|After a successful run of 28 issues (the last one had a cover
story on Rudy Ray Moore and a feature on Josie & The
Pussycats), Dana bowed out and sold off the operation in
2002 (see below for the hand-off). Unfortunately, much like
Factsheet 5, the new guy dropped the ball and hasn’t been
heard since. A damned shame….and I’m sure Countryman
hasn’t heard the last of the bitching since either.
The Mag maybe history, but NOT Dana's
creative output, especially his recording
albums!! Go to the Dana Countryman's
Experience (HERE) for all the fun!!
If anybody has a copy of issue numbers 1, 5, & 8,
contact me at email@example.com. Hell, I'll except
xeroxed or PDF copies. Thanks!
