Okay, so i'm becoming obsessed with finding independent craft fairs--stop me. there's one at old pine community center on saturday dec. 13th and it's part of a benefit for the rock-n-roll camp for girls so I have to do that--how can i not? it's like from 2-6--you busy? there's also the punk rock flea market on the 20th--you still up for that one? let me know. i'm gonna do 'em both, but it would be more fun with you:)
OOH. Looks like I can't send you a message until we're friends. Anyway, I can definitely send you 'little' no. 6 The War Between Words & Numbers. If you deal with Paypal, I can send you an invoice for it.
I'd also be interested in doing a trade if you like... your zines look really cool and I make some zines myself. They have vague descriptions on the zines.wordpress.com blog - She Said, Tea & Biscuits, Don't Panic, etc. Let me know. Oh p.s my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for the zines! Sorry for the late reply but a bad case of 'man flu' has meant low functioning for me at the moment! I'm really enjoying working my way through at the moment. Also I got sent the Zine Yearbook and was pleasently surprised to see an introduction from you at the start! Nice work on that and I'm very happy to have some of the UK Zine Yearbook included!
I speak very minimal German as I learnt French at school, though it would be a help to learn German as a lot of scientific papers are in German!
I ended up going to Mulheim as Andrew Culture (who writes beat motel zine) was too scared to go alone, so a group of us went ove rwith him. There's a two day event next year, which hopefully we'll go to again.
The Boston not Boston zine is about Boston in Lincolnshire (lancashire?) and the music venue there and is basically an account by various local zinesters of their times there. Steve has drawn the front cover and a centre spread featuring all the local music community. So not Boston, USA I'm afraid!
I met him at the Mullheim zine fest in Germany. He was running sticks and stones distro (i think) but holly who is the day to day propreitress was ill so I didn't meet her. Since then I've bumped into him at both the London and Manchester zinefests. Aswell as Rum Lad he's done stuff in "this is Boston not Boston" and a collaborative comic with other UK zinesters/artists which I have temporarily forgotten the title of! Have you seen either of those?
Wow! You have a solid output of writing! How about a swap of issue 5 of The New Wave for the latest issue of The La La Theory? When I get paid I will pick up your other stuff too! Also that Estsy website is awesome and shall be looked into soon!
Have fun at the zinefest, I went to one all the way up in Manchester...exactly a month ago in fact. Was great fun to pick up some northern zines. I shall look forward to the receipt of the zines...as for the one i'm making, still more in head than on paper i'm afraid:(
