The Trireme -
unnamed small music mag

This month's Trireme Award, for "the worst terms since I was last chained to the oars," in the words of one freelance, is a retro 1980s-style summer special. It goes to an unnamed "small music mag, part staffowned and in the business for at least three decades". (It's not too hard for a journalist to look them up, given that information!)

In any event, they pay the princely sum of 40 for a 300-word review, around 13p a word, a "rate unchanged for 30 years." As our freelance contributor commmented, "XXXX".
