Crossroads was started in November 2001 as a bimonthly of roots and old school rock music. It was a first of satellites around general rock monthly magazine Compact, which was established in 2000. In 2003 Crossroads and Compact , both directed by Christophe Goffette, merged. Later in 2004 Compact Crossroads merged with movie magazine Brazil (named after Terry Gilliam film). The issues #25 (October 2004) to #33 (June 2005) had both titles on the cover, Compact Crossroads and Brazil. From the issue #34 to the final common issue #56 in 2007 only the name Compact Crossroads appears on the cover. In October 2007 the movie magazine Brazil relaunched with numbering starting from #1 again and the Crossroads changed his title to Xroads. In June 2011 after issue #41 (#98) the Xroads suddenly ceased. In September 2020 the magazine reappears as a mook quarterly Crossroads with issue #99. (, wikipedia)
