Abstract The interlayer magnetoresistance of a quasi-one-dimensional Fermi liquid is considered for the case of a magnetic field that is rotated within the plane perpendicular to the most-conducting direction. Within semi-classical transport theory, dips in the magnetoresistance occur at integer 'magic angles' only when the electronic dispersion parallel to chains is non-linear. If the field direction is fixed at one of the magic angles and the temperature is varied, then the resulting variation of the scattering rate can lead to a non-monotonic variation of the interlayer magnetoresistance with temperature. Although the model considered here gives a good description of some of the properties of the Bechgaard salts, (TMTSF)(2)PF6 for pressures less than 8 kbar and (TMTSF)(2)ClO4, it gives a poor description of their properties when the field is parallel to the layers and of the intralayer transport.
