The Downbeat Magazine - Issue 1

ISSUE 1 IS BACK! DUE TO DEMAND WE HAVE REWORKED AND RE PRINTED OUR FIRST ISSUE** With more pages and content, for the collectors our there, this is a new 'OLD' issue.  


OUT NOW, Issue 1 - The Downbeat Magazine.  


Taking its name from Newcastle's Jazz and R&B club, the Downbeat Club.  The Downbeat, in its 60s heyday, was the place to go to for Beats, Mods and Jazz lovers of the North East.  Here's a few 'teaser' pics showing some of the content in the magazine.  


The Downbeat magazine, in each issue, will feature music, art, sub cults, film and fashion and encompass all of our passions in one place. Expect to see interviews with people we admire and respect. The magazine will predominantly have a 60s flavour but not always! And we will feature an article on the North East's musical heritage each issue. Our first issue features articles written for us by John Hellier, Mike (Mickey) Tenner, John Leo Waters and Roger Smith plus a host of other contributors.  We have no advertising in the magazine so it is stuffed full with editorial. 


The Downbeat is in A4 format and printed on 130 gsm glossy paper, it would not look out of place on the smartest of coffee tables...  It's been hectic but we have had a great time putting this magazine together, we hope you enjoy it!
