Dear Collegues, Editors,
we hope that after 3 years of delay finally the catalogue is going to be published soon. However, due to economical reasons we only can send prints to Hungarian artists, for international people we’d send it in pdf.
Please send us your email addresses! to: multiplika2000-gmail-com
három évnyi késlekedés után jó reményeink vannak, hogy még idén ki tudjuk adni a katalógust. Megkérünk mindenkit, hogy küldje meg a postacímét, ezzel megkönnyítve a postázási, borítékolási munkánkat!
Here's a batch of Guttersnipes to warm your cockles whilst the winter kicks in. You can find a bit more background and another edition here, and you are strongly advised to crank up the Youtubulator and watch this superb blast from the past - a BBC, Open Door documentary focussing on this excellent fanzine. I will look to update this blog soon with the inclusion of all those obscure names and whatnot that might go some way to increasing the likelihood of the hidden gems appearing in web searches.
Journalist Tries To Sell Bog Paper!
An excellent fanzine here from Dean Poole, 'the phantom one-finger typer' of Penarth. Quantitatively and qualitatively spot on stuff all round with: interviews - What is Oil?, Stripey Zebras (interview by Jah Ovjam), Crass, Robert Lawrence; cassette reviews - Down Under (VA), Dharma (At Forden), A Bagful of Angst (VA), Soundtracks to Imaginary Films (Robert Gillam), Optimism/Squirrel/Absurd (Bendle), A Compilation of Greats (VA), Flexed Burial (Jim Hydraxis) + elsewhere there's Dean on Independent Cassettes; vinyl reviews - Disorder, Flipper, Crass, The Dead Kennedys, The Exploited; articles from Smear, (of Conventional Tapes) fame gives us Confessions of a Con Man, and The Get + a live review of 86 Mix/The Get/The Apostles/Cold War/Stripey Zebras/What is Oil?A4 scanned at 400 dpiNew System #1
A Paper Alcohol Publication"Hi Kids! This fantastic work of literary art is the responsibility of: Tim, Doc, Neil, Chris, Kathie etc etc". Neil being Mr. Jeffcoate, the convener of the Northampton based Paper Alcohol Collective. Again, being rather more concerned with 'issues', DYKVR? is something of a departure from the standard interview/profile/review type fanzine. Issue 2 has articles such as, Troops Out of Ireland, Compulsory Cultural Monotony - Notes on Jealousy, Anti War, What Office Workers Say, Anarchy & Action, and Cruise Missiles - Nuclear Suicide. There is also quite a focus on bootlegs featuring Bob Roke's, Years on Earth, Ludus, Adam & The Antz, Northampton Under Glass (Antibodies, White Rabbit, Social Disease, The Russians, Where's Lisse, Directorix, Religious Overdose, The Syndromes), Bauhaus, and Theatre of Hate. There's also a light dusting of collage throughout. Intriguing stuff!A4 scanned at 400 dpiDo You Know Vanessa Redgrave?
Now here's a lovely item - a screenprinted collection of Poison Girls' lyrics compiled by the band in response to the then growing interest from punters and journos alike. This first edition was limited to 150 copies and I am immensely indebted to Edwin Pouncey, to whom this copy was presented by the band, as it was from he that I came to possess this fabulous artefact. Besides the lyrics, WWiT also gives details of the venue and date where each song had its first airing - fascinating stuff I'm sure you'll agree. Words Written in Trust
What Vision is Left and is Anyone Asking? OK, here's issue 3 of Blast out of Belfast and to be totally clear - I make no political point. The head honcho is Solomon Po working alongside a clutch of cartoon creators. This is something of different kind for ee - I have a rake more Blasts so if this proves popular I'll post some more. Cartoons: Harlequin - Lightning, The Womb Room - Maco, Sk'duddle O'er Binguddey - Scally Wag. Mind you, it's not all cartoons - there are a few interviews: Davy Francis (A Legend in his own Lunchtime) is quizzed by Lightning - as is Pat from behind the counter at Just Books in Belfast. Crass (Lightning and Scally Wag talk to G) + a page of photos from the Anarchy Centre gig, and there's also the remnants of a misplaced interview with Poison Girl, Richard. Also there's a bunch of correspondence in Spout Your Load. A3 folded scanned at 400 dpiBlast #3
