anorak fanzine: 'a friend like you adds colour to the room'

Post by Anonymous » Sat Sep 29, 2007 15:31

let's do a fanzine, we'll do it as a pdf and then people can download it, print it out and send it on to friends (if that's workable... I haven't got a clue)

I would like to call it 'a friend like you adds colour to the room' which is a line from a pocketbooks song

who's in?

I'd love to do some fanzine type stuff, but unfortunately don't trust most of what I write. It's either fatuous or just dull. I could write about Birmingham's best music venues. Both of them.

Ok, that I will. Next week: the Island Bar, including price lists, bouncer nicknames and charcoal impressions. You're going to rip yourself to pieces in wonder.

I might just do a review.

it'd be a great way to raise the profile of the board. I'm trying to think of what I could do for it.

I was thinking of assembling it in the cut and paste, scissors and glue spirit of old and then scanning it in and turning it into a pdf

I like the cut of your syntax, PCP

Might I suggest its CD wallet sized, and comes with a cover CD, can be handed out at gigs, so at least we're all reading from the same hymnsheet

Mr. Button suggested a review of TWP George Best gig--and I guess a sort of "Shit, it's been 20 years" angle. If you don't need anything 'til November, I can get you that. Of course, if you think it's a shit idea, nevermind!

It came to me ealier this evening, how about a sheet of A4 printed on both sides, folder over twice, stapled and sli, giving you an eight page A6 booklet.

Same format at The Metro, London Paper, London Lite, etc, with news, halfnaked woman, reviews, listings and sport, in that order.

The listings'll have to be regional London, Midlands, Glasgow, but the rest can be the same.

Before you go to a gig, print out a pocketful and leave them with the flyers.

If no one else is, would it be wrong for me to do this on my own? It can't be that difficult to churn out mush for folk to read at gigs

there is stuff being produced for the fanzine we're doing here, but there's nothing to stop you doing a fanzine of your own (obviously)

Ah, usually when people are doing things, it looks more like people are doing things.

I love that phrase. In my head I can hear Simon Pegg saying it
