A shameless plug for this unlocked November 2020 birthday article.

35 Years of Sound On Sound -- It's a bit of fun.

Thanks to everyone who got us to issue 421 and for staying the course. We :SOS: salute you.

CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved across those 35 years. They passed so quickly. When does the midlife crisis begin?

It is an impressive milestone; I feel as if I've grown up alongside SOS for decades now (oh, wait, that'll be because I have!)

Wonderful job and thank you to all the staff for a brilliant read. The dedication and hard work is inspiring :clap: :clap: :clap:

SOS has increased knowledge so much and caused credit cards to melt so many times. :D
Congratulations on 35 years!

Thanks for the comments chaps.

What I find the most scariest thing is that the writer of the article, Chris Korff (aka Forum member The Korff) wasn't even born when we launched SOS in 1985 ! Eek!!!!! :o :shock: :o :shock:

Piggin' 'eck!
I remember buying issue 2 all those decades ago, with a young John Foxx on t'cover.
And I still have it.
All that took place back in summat called t' 20th Century,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85SQnF7I0gY
when "Midi" was something women wore, "synths" did not remotely resemble Gemma Chan (sadly). and Hovis was still delivered by a Boy and Bicycle. ;)
But you tell young people today, and they won't believe you.

Félicitations, Sound on Sound !
You certainly turned your Revolt Into Style...

That photo of the 1914 issue begs the question - what have you got against Geoff Downes? :bouncy:
