a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I found some of my dad's old zine collection a couple of years ago. Today I was writing about it for my next issue and I was wondering if anyone knew if Mark P (Sniffin' Glue) is still alive or not. Don't worry, I'm not planning on contacting him or anything, I was just wondering whether he's still with his band and still alive.
Looks like he still is & atv are still going (or were in the last decade.) after being reformed - can't find anything to say he's died but his website's gone and can't find any info newer than 2008.
zinewiki says "Perry got back into writing in 1996, providing the text for Erica Echenberg's photo book, And God Created Punk, published by Virgin. In 2000, Sanctuary Books published Sniffin' Glue: The Essential Punk Accessory, which compiled all the issues of Perry's original punk zine, along with newer writing and photos. Today Mark Perry still performs and releases music with Alternative TV." http://zinewiki.com/Mark_Perry (last updated in 2006)
