Okay - since the last update on here we've recorded seven more episodes, you can find them all on Mixcloud or as an MP3 download on our Tumblr. Guests have included members of EFIALTIS, SEMI, SNOB, SKY:LARK, ES and much more - we've uploaded PUB CLASSICS 9 this morning and after eight months have finally bought a pop filter.


Finally back in Pub Classics HQ, we have a guestless hour and a half on a post-chippy tea Sunday and try to get back to a fortnightly schedule. We mutilate several languages with our bastard English tongues, celebrities die, we forget how many members of Crisis are nazis, Sean’s looking for a book, we have a pop filter, Jools Holland introduces The Coneheads. EAT IT EAT IT EAT IT.

...that isn't a benefit/cassette magazine

I want to buy fifty cassettes and put out a mate's demo. In terms of where the money/copies go, how does everyone split it? Is Tapeline decent in 2015 (I've only used Fairview in the past, who have been great but don't have the variety of shells, etc) and how is your experience with loading coloured paper/cardboard into a work printer? this thread, give me your cassette releasing advice

Build progress: video five.

The crowdfund raised over six grand. Bloody hell, thank you all.


(13 replies, posted in main forum)

Video four. Pigeons.

Give us your money. Just over a week left on the crowdfund, and we are coming up against the odd extra cost in our aim to make this fully accessible.

Third build video, with a fourth coming later today:

Be sure to read our latest blog post for an idea of where we currently stand, and chuck a few quid into the Indiegogo crowdfunding page; we've met our £3,000 target which is stupendous, but with fire regulations and doing everything ever so legally the more the merrier will be appreciated - help us get to five grand, yeah?

Is this a thread about the budget?


(13 replies, posted in main forum)

We have launched an Indiegogo to raise £3,000 as part of a Final Push. £1,500 has been raised in less than 24 hours, chuck in a few quid if you can...

Nothing that gives Zane Lowe more power is worth my time.

(Beats 1 is actually intriguing - they're trying to copy Radio 1, which is strange. Isn't the rest Spotify, so... handy if you have the right device?)

"It says a lot about the time we live in that freedom of speech is so over analysed that you can't even use words."

Listened to 'Cheer Up London' and it reminded me of an edgy Madness. Bunch of pricks.

Chung King's now the most expensive record sold on Discogs. someone paid $6048 for it … 015/241143

I'm sure 10 years ago people were shocked when it sold for over 1000.

Why does this record go for so much, were there nine copies and the rest went in a fire, something like that?

£18 is the most I've paid. I'd say there's no real need to spend more but there's Instant Automatons records that were found in an attic going for $150 a piece, and one drunken PayPal Night they'll be mine.

A detour could be 'how much is the record of your dreams going for, and would you go for it after a bottle of wine?'

Labour deserved their decimation, the Lib Dems got what they deserved (and so do the SNP - position yourself on the side of common decency and get a landslide, and on huge turnouts too), and we're all fucked.

Are the SNP really not gonna support Labour, even with no concessions? Course they are - cos the alternative is immeasurably worse.

Yeah, this can still happen - Plaid Cymru and the Greens have said they'd co-operative with at least the SNP, I think.

If it's not a second election, the fear of a 1992 repeat is driving me to distraction. As long as UKIP don't win in Grimsby or Boston. Anybody else voting for their village parish tomorrow?

Second election before Christmas.

Is vl-wee-wee the real name or are you all being silly?

Here, Termbo, and the void of Facebook are the only forums I've ever really seen...

There's a record shop in Grimsby that's been taking part and their selections were very much Classic Dads, but they did very well all the same. Mesmerised that you can sell out of £15 Metallica cassettes anywhere, let along the Humber coast...

They're still about - perhaps they're changing a little? Photozines and self-published comics are going through a purple patch, which has been helped along by Tumblrs and Bigcartels a not insignificant amount. There's been some crackers, like Distort or Nuts (having got the last four recently, they give a great feeling of Stuff Happening), and of course MRR which has been essential these past few months.

Remain convinced that paper zines will still outlast your teenage WordPress.
