Blatant plugging of good things.

For many years I have been a massive fan of Headpress Magazine. It has to be one of the best tomes/periodicals written on obscure counter-culture in the UK or perhaps even the whole world.

I cannot say how brilliant, witty, offbeat and interesting every issue is and it has a place on my shelves. If I could travel back in time and steal the themes, titles and articles and produce my own Headpress Magazine, I would. But then again I'm lazy in the extreme.

Recently, distribution has been quite an issue for David Kerekes, editor of the magazine. If you're reading this and have a music/book/comic store, please stock it. You won't be disappointed as it is one the smartest, most savvy and well written magazines on the market. It's criminal that it hasn't been embraced by a bigger audience but that would probably be in contrast to the ethos and tone of the publication.

Christ, just go out and buy the damn thing people!!!

Hmmm, just threw out the first few issues of that mag while cleaning out my old room at my Dad's.

That is such a crime! If any publications/books need a new home, give me a yell!
