yeh, they should be generally available after this weekend

probably best to do this via marianthi and ian's online 'zine emporium- but I'll be in a better position to sort all this shennanigans out from the middle of next week once I get back from nottingham

also, more people will have seen it by next week and they may advise you it's not worth the bother

Whoah! can't wait to read it, Andy. The cover looks fantastic.
Ace!!

I'm going to do another one, yeh, I have some great stuff I didn't fit into the last one (mj hibbett! phil wilson!), plus hopefully interviews with pocketbooks and horowitz and some other things and maybe I'll try for a cd to go with it too... but I might be talking out of my arse about that

and then I think that'll be it and I'm going to do something else

I'm sending a bunch of the first one to marianthi and ian at the caramel boutique so I'd suggest that as a contact

I read my copy back at the Travelodge on saturday night, then again when i got home 'cos drinking stupid booze made me forget everything i'd already read.

a double bonus.

It's great Andy, i like especially like the Besties/Bunnygrunt face off.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

I finally got around to reading the fanzine this morning, and I've got to say I really liked it. For what it only your first fanzine, it looks pretty professional. I want to start my own one pretty soon, and that'll be my first effort too, so yours is now a benchmark I fear.

I really liked the writing too, very strong; my favourite feature was The Boy Hairdressers bit. That seemed like a hell of a lot of effort and research for a very short lived band. Superb, well done.

Damian left his copy downstairs, so I read his. It was a top notch read! Loads of cool bands, well written, and managed to avoid the tedious cliché interview questions.

I owe you a quid.

in my best elephant man voice (not the reggae dancehall artiste):

*strange sucking noise* you've all be so very kind *strange sucking noise*

I've sent a bunch to the caramac cafe (?) if anyone's desperate for a fog
