Don't go wasting money on those Brand X MagazinesSkint after buying MBUK? Good! Don't want you wasting money on crap bike magazines. But it does worry us sometimes, that the little bit of music Jamie provides in the main mag isn't enough and you might go and buy a music mag instead of ours.
(You have just heard a Bank Manager scream. Not a pretty sound).
Just in case you're tempted that way, here an alternative that some of the guys on mbuk.com contribute to - and it's FREE!
Soulmusic is an online alternative lifestyle magazine produced by a group of uni students from the deepest, darkest depths of Durham University (when they're not knocking back the sherbets down the union).
Tooled up by an ever-changing team of contributors, Soulmusic offers more than enough depth and variety to keep its regular following entertained.
Every issue contains honest music reviews, amazing photos and inspiring writing, all put together on a simple Apple Mac in James Hilton's home.
The magazine is available for download from the Soulmusic website which saves on printing costs and makes the magazine available to a much broader audience.
There's an issue out every couple of months, and they've asked me to say they're always lookiing for contributions. So if your a budding writer or photographer, why not email email@example.com some of your stuff and see what happens/simon
