Sounds was a long-term British music paper, published weekly from 10 October 1970 – 6 April 1991. It was produced by Spotlight Publications, which was set up by Jack Hutton and Peter Wilkinson, who left Melody Maker to start their own company. Sounds was their first project, a weekly paper devoted to progressive rock and described by Hutton, to those he was attempting to recruit from his former publication, as "a leftwing Melody Maker". Sounds was intended to be a weekly rival to titles such as Melody Maker and New Musical Express. It was well known initially for giving away posters in the centre of the paper and later for covering heavy metal and Oi! music in its late 1970s-early 1980s heyday. Sounds was the first music paper in its coverage of punk and in the late eighties was maintaining its reputation for getting there first, when John Robb covered the Manchester music scene and came up with the term 'Britpop' whilst writing for Sounds. The paper's editors realized the importance of its regional audience and had freelancers across the UK contributing gig reviews and articles about up and coming local bands.
