Vox was a British music magazine, first issued in October 1990. It was published by IPC Media,[1] and was later billed as a monthly sister-magazine to IPC's music weekly, the NME.[2]

Although Vox was seen as IPC's response to EMAP's Q magazine,[3][4][5] it was unable to match the circulation figures generated by Q in the 1990s [1] and was closed in the late 1990s as IPC had launched Uncut. Even though Uncut was first established as an entertainment magazine targeting men aged 25 to 45 with a mixture of movies and music, it soon moved into the space vacated by Vox in the magazine marketplace, becoming more of a music magazine aimed at EMAP's rival Mojo (now published by the Bauer Media Group).[6][7]
