Caramel fanzine distro

Post by crystalball » Thu Jul 17, 2008 11:30 am

Hello! Me and Pop Kid have started a fanzine distro and we hope to keep adding stuff to it regularly. There are so many brilliant zines out there and we thought it'd be good to be able to see them all in one place. We are selling them at the price we bought them, plus postage. If you have any suggestions for other zines we should be stocking or if you're doing a fanzine yourself, please drop us a line: carameldistro@googlemail.com.

We've never done this before so if you have any comments, let us know!

Mine are free, M. I shall soon know if you are a running dog of capitalism.

Lovely little site, anyway.

Thanks!

We'll send yours out free with every order. From Land's End to John O'Groats, yours will be the fanzine everyone will be talking about.

Thank you D! Yeah, we're going to be selling them at gigs - that's how the plan started. We love a good fanzine stall and help is always very welcome. :)

Is that £1 postage added per item or per order? Great idea, btw!

That's per order, Dennis. I should probably make that clear!

Amy, thank you. I'll do my best to bring the distro with me to Brighton, for sure. Maybe I can get Pop Kid to come along too and he'll carry them, he's a boy.

Ok, I'll come and do the heavy lifting.

I'm quite excited about this, I think it's desperately needed. I'm going to buy up some fanzines from Sweden this weekend and add them to the distro next week - I'll let everyone know what I pick up.

It is a grand idea and it is needed - as people are often lazy and having one place to go is gonna mean more zines getting to people!

And I forgot to add - that I may have a few of Lostmusic zines 1 & 2 kicking about - your welcome to those (they were free) - to send with each order.

Lostmusic #3 should be ready for Indietracks. In theory.

Thanks, Trev.

Yeah, we can take the Lostmusic fanzines off your hands I'm sure.

Oh, Marianthi and Ian, what a wonderful service and a lovely little site!

If there are any decent ones in Boston, I'll send them you're way!

Congratulations--and to all the contributors as well.

We've got some copies of A Layer of Chips now, with a cd and a badge, and we'll be sending those out free with every order. Woody is well pissed off in this issue.

Did you get them? Excellent.

Woody taught you everything you know about stand-up, Jamie.
