MELODY MAKER
RECORDS

 Independent label: Pressed By PRS Ltd. Free E.Ps. given away with Melody Maker. Melody Maker was a British weekly music newspaper, founded in 1926. In 2000 it was merged into New Musical Express. Founded on the growing popularity of dance-band and jazz-style music in the UK the magazine beat the launch of television in the UK by two years. After the war, and staunchly following the trail of 'easy-listening' and jazz-oriented music, the weekly was slow to embrace the emergence of skiffle, rock n' roll and blues and soon found itself competing with the likes of New Musical Express [NME] and Beat Instrumental. The main feature which helped maintain its sales in the growing and ever-competitive 'music mag' market was its adherence to quality reviews of equipment and a willingness to report on reader's demo recordings. However, despite a glossy-cover relaunch in the 1990s the 'MM', as it was known, finally became merged with NME along with its core journalists under the umbrella of IPC Media. Distributed By Melody Maker.
