In my younger years Hot Press was, or wanted to be, the slightly edgy goto place for info on music, gigs etc. It also forayed into slightly edgy politics-- remember the Haughey interview.

I hadn't seen it for decades until recently.
To my disgust it is now full of bland asylum seeker stories and attacks on Direct Provision.

When did that happen?

The Hot Press was always like some 60 year old geezer in a Rolling Stones T shirt..

What's the target audience..?

I can't imagine any young person reading it..can you?

Hanging on desperately for the promised newspaper dole would be my guess..

It was kind of relevant in the 80's. But that kind of leftism nowadays? That's not anti-establishment. That is the establishment.

Hot Press was actually superb in the '80s. World class. John Waters was a leading light FFS.
