Some yellowing, slight rusty staples but no rips


There’s a couple of more days left on this exhibition of fanzines at The Barbican Music Library, Barbican Library, Silk Street, EC2Y 8DS.



It’s a collection of various fanzines in three or four “Library style” glass cases. It’s a shame there weren’t no zerox reproductions of the actual fanzines so you could flick through and read about William Burroughs, Doctor Who or god forbid Terry and the Idiots. Sadly no copies of Ded Yampy or Steroid Abuse though. 

So if you’re interested in self-publication throughout the years, go and have a butchers. But please, no spitting or swearing while viewing the Punk fanzines, this is a public library you know! P


Unknown pleasures

Last week when there was still sunshine in London town I discovered a place (not far) from the madding crowd just off Fleet Street,  complete with chapel, shady square and fountain. Have a wander and search out Fountain Court, Middle Temple on your travels. P
