Vital Weekly is the oldest e-mail magazine, which appears 48 times a year and has the latest experimental music reviews.

Vital started in 1987 as a paper magazine. Its simple xeroxed form ensured free copyright; everybody was encouraged to make and distribute copies. Until 1995, 44 issues were made, and with the arrival of the Internet, Vital changed into a pure review newsletter; since then, it has appeared online weekly, still as a free service and still without copyright.

Vital Weekly is a labour of love and devotion. No advertisements, so we depend on your support! Check the links in the sidebar to donate via PayPal or Patreon.
