Number One was a British pop music weekly magazine which ran for around nine years, mostly during the 1980s.

Aimed, mainly at the teenage market, one of the most popular aspects was that it published the singles and albums charts every week. However, the magazine was in direct competition to another popular magazine at the time – Smash Hits.

Smash Hits had a bigger circulation (almost tenfold), more features and articles and was of a similar price, so it was no surprise when Number One eventually shut up shop around 1992. The final issue carried details of the features and interviews that would appear in the next issue, but was never published.

History lesson over.

Here’s a review from Stuart Butler of the Trashcan’s gig at the London ICA (The Institute of Contemporary Arts) from way back – 28 June 1990, to be precise.
