On glue sticks, chips and statistics...

For the first issue of R*E*P*E*A*T in 1994 we printed 66 copies.

In 2016 (if I read the stats properly) we've had 3,093,804 hits from 312,337 different visitors to www.repeatfanzine.co.uk

I think this shows not just the brilliance of our contributors, bands and of course The Manics, but also a resilience of resistance to the way we are told things (music, culture, society) have to be, a continued belief that beneath the pavement is the beach, and a determination in this mad, alienating and sick world to Stay Beautiful.

2016 hasn't been the easiest of years for many of us. However, 100 years ago a famous revolutionary said “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”
It's up to us to fill 2017 with these weeks.

Thanks to everyone who's helped...x
