New year, new plans


Time for a Shebang update. 2009 wasn't the best for productivity for the zine, as Lynsey & I were moving house, changing jobs & doing internships (me), running an art cafe (Lynsey) and generally not really having time to sit down and write, let alone get the third issue finished. So here's the news on Issue #3 as I know a lot of people have been asking about it recently. So far, the majority of the content is finished; we just need a few final bits and pieces and then we can do the illustration call out. The main problem is raising the printing money, as we're still only two thirds of the way there (and it ain't cheap!). Our offer of BOTH issues for £7 is still on, so please take advantage of it if you haven't already, as until we've sold more of the first 2 issues we can't go ahead with the third. Offer is on our online shop HERE. Please help us out! Both issues are also available at our usual stockists.

I guess if we're still behind on the costs in a few months, we might have to start looking into including advertising, which is a little bit heartbreaking.

Anyway.. money worries aside, 2010 is already looking like a fun year as we've got a table at the Brighton Zine Fest in February, and hope to take part in the Alternative Press Fair in London which takes place the week before, making Feb a bit of a zineorama! Lynsey has also just made a new blog for you to follow HERE, and Eagle Legs - our monthly Brighton club night at the Penthouse - will be changing to the 2nd Saturday of every month (with MEN playing on the January 16th night!).

Love to all & thanks for the support!
