Like a phoenix from the musical ashes, Groove Guide gets resuscitated

Rumours that Groove Guide lives to fight another day are entirely … true. 

On Monday, Tangible Media announced it was to close the much-loved but struggling street-zine. There was an outcry, teeth were gnashed, wailing took place and a few suitors came out of the woodwork when it became apparent it was on its deathbed.
