Spotlight: Face The Music Germany 50th Edition
1,627: My good friends Patrik Guttenbacher and Marc Haines over at Face The Music Germany have recently joined ELO in celebrating the 50th edition of their excellent magazine in tandem with the 50th anniversary of the Electric Light Orchestra. Although my German is at best basic, the fact filled, glossy copy of the FTM Germany #50 magazine that arrived at KJS/ELOBF HQ here in Wolverhampton last week instantly impressed with a front/back cover montage citing all former members of ELO as well as featuring a wonderful pictorial history of all the ELO spaceships, two in depth analyses of Paul McCartney's "Flaming Pie" Deluxe and Collectors Editions, an extensive overview of the press coverage for the Jeff Lynne's ELO most recent album "From Out Of Nowhere" and much more.
The professionalism of Face The Music Germany makes you wonder what Face The Music fanzine would look like today if it hadn't have gone online back in the day (causing some consternation amongst subscribers at the time) and had continued with its original remit of covering all things ELO & related as opposed to essentially becoming an extension of the Sony marketing regime. It's ironic that whilst Yours Truly KJS enthuses today over FTM Germany that ftmusic.com appears to have sadly gone offline at the time of writing.
