Sounds

 Germany

 
German monthly magazine from Munich. Started in 1966 mainly as a free jazz magazine, some years later switched over to progressive rock. In 1978/79 the magazine was a center point of a "new German wave". In 1983 the new owner Jürg Marquard merged two of his magazines, Sounds and Musikexpress, into new one – Musikexpress/Sounds. Several people from Sounds staff moved to the magazine Spex.

Zappa / Beefheart / Mothers "Bongo Fury"
By Karl Lippegaus, 1 p
