Founded in 1989, Ptolemaic Terrascope magazine was one of the most well respected, widely read, frequently quoted independent music journals in the world. Throughout nearly three dozen issues, the Terrascope championed the finest offerings from the world of folk, freakbeat and psychedelia, to Krautrock, prog, punk, free jazz, electronica - and nearly every genre in between. Published by Nick ('The Bevis Frond') Saloman in London, editor Phil McMullen assembled some of the finest artists and critics around from his country retreat in the rural West of England and presented exclusive interviews with pioneers in each of the aforementioned musical styles, as well as discovering many new and upcoming artists along the way. Highlights from past issues include interviews with Captain Beefheart, Spirit, Charlie Watts, XTC, Paul McCartney, Caravan, Robert Wyatt, Country Joe McDonald, Frank Zappa & The Mothers, Jefferson Airplane, The Kinks, Quicksilver Messenger Service, David Ackles, Ian Matthews, Arthur Lee & Love, Vivian Stanshall, Bardo Pond, Man, Neutral Milk Hotel, Guided by Voices, Olivia Tremor Control, Hawkwind, the Ramones, Tiny Tim, the Incredible String Band, Tom Rapp & Pearls Before Swine, Mick Farren & The Deviants - and many, many more. In essence, almost the entire history of rock and roll from the Sixties to the present day has been discussed, dissected, interpreted, and evaluated within its pages.
