Too Much Noise


Too Much Noise was a 50's rock 'n' roll and rockabilly magazine, issued from 1984 to 1991, 35 issues in total. The magazine appeared irregularly, usually 3-4 times a year. First 23 issues were in A5 format, thereafter Too Much Noise was in B5 format. In September 1991, the most prolific assistant, Marko Tapio, was involved in a car accident and died in October. Marko was also responsible for a lot of Pink Thunderbird stuff. As a result, the top three magazines at the time (Brand New Beat - Pink Thunderbird - Too Much Noise) ended the collaboration and the result was Rumble. (Pasi Koskela)
