Chart Attack first went online in 1996, before AOL was a punchline and when jokes about porn taking a long time to load actually made sense. We’ve come a long way.
If you’ve been keeping up with Chart Attack over the past two years (or longer), you’ll know that the website has changed a lot. For about two decades, Chart – first as a magazine, then as a website – mostly covered the dire landscape of Canadian alternative rock, but in 2011 it was about to close its doors permanently. Instead, the name and website was handed off to a team of one semi-competent music junky: me, Dan. A year later, this team grew to two, with Jordan coming aboard to write all day and criticize my sandwiches.
And with the help of a changing roster of contributors, Chart Attack has thrived. But there’s also a lot of room for improvement, and we’re finally able to take a big step forward. That is, we’re going to bring someone new aboard as a full-time Editor-in-Chief.
