UP FRONT WITH FANGO'S CHRIS ALEXANDER
FRONT is one of the most popular "younger men's" magazines sold in the UK today. It's a bit like a punk rock version of MAXIM. The editors solicit "semi-deranged-yet-genius" readers", as it is indeed a melange of slacker culture and the New Hip. In between the HDR-drenched images of Sk8ter dudes, audio/visual releases, electronic gadgets and pics of hot chicks with tats, there is sometimes a morsel of monster to be discovered. In Issue #162, for insance, there is a two-page spread featuring Chris Alexander, the editor of FANGORIA. Mr. Alexander sounds off with a few fearsome factoids regarding classic horror culture, all served up in the brevity of byte that resonates with today's average attention span.
