Even though I trashed two articles related to the publication in my rockcritics.com round-up of 2006 and recently published an article in my zine lambasting the freak-folk scene that’s based around it, I take no pleasure in saying that Arthur Magazine is probably going to disappear. I did like a lot of the content in Arthur otherwise and always thought it was a great model for indie publishing, even though from the L.A. Times article it’s obvious that they had problems keeping themselves alive financially. I just hope that it can somehow continue it online (which is something I pushed for when they started out).
