VOX

 UK

 
British mainstream music monthly covering a wide variety of popular musics. Tons of record reviews ordered according to genres makes this a very valuable information source. One of the best of its kind & recommended. Now deleted. (rojaro)
Vox was a British music magazine, first issued in October 1990. It was published by IPC Media, and was later billed as a monthly sister-magazine to IPC's music weekly, the NME.

Vox came with a 32-page magazine insert, Record Hunter, for collectors.

HAVE YOU GOT CHANGE OF A ZAPPA?
