History Spin (magazine)_section_0

Spin was established in 1985. Spin (magazine)_sentence_1

In its early years, the magazine was known for its narrow music coverage with an emphasis on college rock, grunge, indie rock, and the ongoing emergence of hip-hop, while virtually ignoring other genres, such as country, and metal. Spin (magazine)_sentence_2

It pointedly provided a national alternative to Rolling Stone's more establishment-oriented style. Spin (magazine)_sentence_3

Spin prominently placed newer artists such as R.E.M. Spin (magazine)_sentence_4 , Prince, Run-D.M.C. Spin (magazine)_sentence_5 , Eurythmics, Beastie Boys, and Talking Heads on its covers and did lengthy features on established figures such as Duran Duran, Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Miles Davis, Aerosmith, Lou Reed, Tom Waits, and John Lee HookerBart Bull's article on Hooker won the magazine its first major award.

Spin Alternative Record Guide Spin (magazine)_section_1

Main article: Spin Alternative Record Guide Spin (magazine)_sentence_7

In 1995, Spin produced its first book, entitled Spin Alternative Record Guide. Spin (magazine)_sentence_8

It compiled writings by 64 music critics on recording artists and bands relevant to the alternative music movement, with each artist's entry featuring their discography and albums reviewed and rated a score between one and ten. Spin (magazine)_sentence_9

According to Pitchfork Media's Matthew Perpetua, the book featured "the best and brightest writers of the 80s and 90s, many of whom started off in zines but have since become major figures in music criticism," including Rob Sheffield, Byron Coley, Ann Powers, Simon Reynolds, and Alex Ross. Spin (magazine)_sentence_10

Although the book was not a sales success, "it inspired a disproportionate number of young readers to pursue music criticism." Spin (magazine)_sentence_11

After the book was published, its entry on 1960s folk artist John Fahey, written by Byron Coley, helped renew interest in Fahey's music, leading to interest from record labels and the alternative music scene. Spin (magazine)_sentence_12
