We want your teenage zines!
No matter how embarrassing, it doesn’t matter: at some stage, everyone’s called a band the bastard lovechild of X and Y on acid, lovingly photocopied a 50-page volume all about the object of their affection, musical or otherwise, or started their own newspaper to make their small, rural village feel livelier. Or y’know, maybe you ran a really cool, influential ahead of its time zine. In which case, we kind of hate you, but would love to see it all the same.
Inspired by My Band T-Shirt, Letters Of Note, and The Guardian’s My Favourite Album series, this blog will collect your zines and the stories behind them. If you want to take part, send jpegs or PDFs of your zine, and a few paragraphs about its conception and raison d’etre to laurasnapes at gmail dot com.
Thanks to Peter Robinson for the name.
