All has been fairly quiet for Shebang recently; probably due to February being such a manic month, what with the printing deadlines/sorting copies/preordering/sending out orders/getting it in shops/Brighton Zine Fest and so on. But I'm in the process of getting a few ideas together for the third issue, and so far we've got interviews with Wetdog and Das Wanderlust (which was meant to be in the last issue, but we ran out of room!) as well as some other interesting bands in the pipeline. And hopefully we'll be including a feature on We Heart Arts, which also had to be axed from Issue 02 at the last minute due to space problems (to find out more, check out their website: http://www.weheartarts.com/)
I'll probably sort out an official call for submissions at some point in the next few weeks, but for now if anyone has any ideas or wants to contribute, let us know! E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Writers especially needed! And features on any topics relating more to arts and travel - I realise that the last issue was pretty music-heavy!
Shebang now has a few more stockists added to the gang, including Dave's Comics in Brighton and the Bonbi Forest Indie Emporium, a beautiful site full of independent designs and beautiful jewellery run by Cornwall-based Lee May (who we featured in the second issue).
This blog has also been a bit abandoned recently (a lot of that might have been to do with the sunny spring afternoons spent on the beach...), but fear not, we'll get it rolling soon.
And a massive thanks once again to everyone who came along to the Brighton Zine Fest last month, it was a great event and the organisers did a fantastic job! Some pics from the day...
