R*E*P*E*A*T Issue 23
Another bulging, chaotic, homemade edition of the glorious R*E*P*E*A*T fanzine has hit the streets of Cambridge. When the makers of this sprawling cult mag say they use "cut and paste" they aren't referring to any newfangled computer geekery - their main editorial tools are in fact scissors and Pritt Stick.
The ever politically outspoken publication is packed with interviews, reviews, photos and random scribblings and a snip at just £2. Especially if you get in quick and buy one of the first 100 copies, because they come with a free CD featuring the cream of local punk talent - Bomb Factory, Princess Drive, CosyCosy and The Furious Sleep. Go to www.repeatfanzine.co.uk and buy it now.
And while we're on the subject, Cambridge has more than one splendid off beat musical fanzine. When you eventually manage to finish R*E*P*E*A*T's 128 pages we recommend the entirely excellent Robots and Electronic Brains. Writer Jimmy Possession has spent years filling his ears with the very strangest and lovely underground sounds, and it shows. The most recent edition also includes the most touching tribute to Public Enemy we've ever read - in fact we almost shed a tear of joy. To subscribe visit www.come.to/robots
