record label fanzines

Cloudberry and Mint produce fanzines fairly regularly.

Sarah and Yay! used to back in the day.

Does anyone know of any others?

Lostmusic - did 3 zines when were up and running - but they were very lo-fi home printed affairs usually tied in with a record launch or something.

Haven't had the time to do one since I started Odd Box.

I can't think of any more current labels that do them, either.
not really here

Che used to, back in the 90s - '64 Slices of American Cheese'.

I'd be willing to bet theres a few issues somewhere in a drawer at my mums house if anyone wants to know what Fergus Yatsura had for his tea or anything.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

Didn't Atomic Beat Records have a mini-zine with at least one of the releases? I must have that somewhere.

We did! It came with the POBPAH/Parallelograms single.

Akiko from Sugarfrost also did the fantastically amazing 5,000 Miles From George Square fanzine but I can't remember if it was part of the label or a separate thing.
