Blogzine 5

£10.00

Blogzine 5 is our latest 40-page full colour zine published March 2021.

Cover design is an original artwork by June Miles Kingston (Mo-Dettes drummer), using photographs she took for Malcolm McLaren on the set of ‘The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle’ in 1978, along with an original piece of [admittedly dire] script. On page 28, June tells us why she was there with a camera, and who exactly is inside that inflatable rubber suit ..!

Interviews in this issue include influential American punk women Exene Cervanka of X and Adele Bertei. We talk with1 Maggie and ViX from We’ve Got a Fuzzbox…, Amelia Fletcher who’s been in many poppy and punky bands including Heavenly and Swansea Sound, anarcho-punk Hagar the Womb‘s Karen, Ruth and Steph and brand new grunge-slacker-punk-pop band Coach Party. Articles include Kensington Market, Siouxsie’s Dear Prudence, We Need to Talk about Amy [Winehouse], Gender, Bondage, Rich and Poor along with recycled comic strips and dubious photos.

Early copies of the zine come with a free A3 poster while stocks last.

Description

Visually stunning 40-page full colour printed zine centred on the women musicians that punk rock produced, but spreading out to include revolutions in art, culture, politics and how generations of girls and women who continue playfully to reject what was expected of them.

Authors Vim Renault and Lene Cortina are two grown-up punk girls who have built up a sturdy following on Twitter and Instagram @punkgirldiaries and their blog punkgirldiaries.com. Like previous issues, the zine includes exclusive interviews with women from different eras and strands of punk and post-punk music.

As well as the fascinating interviews, the zine includes original art, well-written perspective and historical pieces and recycled 1970s Jackie magazine strips. It’s a work of art in itself, with each copy numbered by hand.  Whether you’re fascinated by the punk era or remember it yourself, Blogzine 5 is a sparky, beautiful read, full of interesting detail and visual humour.
