Fanzines – punk rock magazine research

  1. 1. FANZINES? • WHAT‟S A FANZINE? A FANZINE IS A MAGAZINE THAT WILL OFTEN BE PRODUCED MY AMATEURS OR FANS OF A PARTICULAR BAND, GROUP OR FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT. THE EXAMPLE THAT I WILL BE LOOKING AT IS PUNK FANZINES, AS THIS LINKS WELL WITH THE STYLE OF MAGAZINE THAT I WILL BE PRODUCING, PUNK ROCK.
  2. 2. EXAMPLES OF FANZINES • • • • • • • • • • SNIFFIN‟ GLUE VAGUE THE END Â  BOYS OWN 'THE CLIQUE VERSUS THE BLEAK„ KILL YOUR PET PUPPY ABLAZE PUNK PLANET MONITOR CHEMICAL IMBALANCE
  3. 3. SNIFFIN‟ GLUE • THIS WAS A FANZINE PUBLISHED AND EDITED BY MARK PARISH IN LONDON. THE CO-FOUNDER, DANNY BAKER, LATER BECAME A TELEVISION PERSONALITY AFTER BEING A ROCK JOURNALIST. • THE FANZINE COVERED THE EARLY RISE OF PUNK IN THE UK, IT BEGAN ON JULY THE 13TH OF 1976 AND ONLY PRINTED 50 COPIES.
  4. 4. SNIFFIN‟ GLUE FIRST ISSUE The covers were handwritten and hand drawn, giving it a rough and scrap book style. This links to how SNIFFIN‟ Glue became the first ever fanzine to launch thousands of others using the punk DIY ethic. The DIY lifestyle was adopted by punks, they would live by their own means and not buy expensive commercial products. Also, the cover only uses black and white, there is no colour despite the ability to print in colour. This links to the basic DIY style of the fanzine, also meaning that the price could be kept low.
  5. 5. SNIFFIN‟ GLUE STYLE One reviewer, Tony Fletcher , says “Sniffin' Glue was not so much badly written as barely written; grammar was non-existent, layout was haphazard, headlines were usually just written in felt tip, swearwords were often used in lieu of a reasoned argument. . .all of which gave Sniffin' Glue its urgency and relevance.” Writing slopes upwards, shows rough handwriting. Grammatical error, perhaps done on purpose?
  6. 6. VAGUE • VAGUE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE UK BY TOM VAGUE IN THE 1980S. IT WAS THE FIRST UK FANZINE THAT WAS PUBLISHED WITH A SPINE. • IT WAS DESCRIBED AS ANTI VOGUE, DISCUSSING CONSPIRACY THEORIES, CULT FILMS, POLITICS ETC AS WELL AS COVERING PUNK BAND REVIEWS AND INTERVIEWS.
  7. 7. VAGUE FIFTH ISSUE The title appears to say VAGUE, however looking underneath you can see that written underneath the A is in fact an O. This links to the anti VOGUE description of VAGUE, as it has been untidily painted over leaving smudges which are also on the G and U. The colour scheme consists of a duck egg blue, black and white. The image has been printed in a vintage way compared to the more modern looking price at the bottom left had corner of the page.
  8. 8. VAGUE STYLE There is a colour scheme of pink, green, black and white in this image. The cover woman‟s eye lash appears to be falling off very obviously. This could again be linking to the anti VOGUE style of the fanzine, as VOGUE displays images of models who have been made up b make up artists for the photo. Also, focusing on the eyes, she appears to be staring into space and is bearing a dull expression. This mocks the idea that model‟s are “bimbo‟s”.
  9. 9. FANZINES AND MY MAGAZINE • THESE FANZINES DISPLAY STYLES, CONTENTS AND IDEOLOGIES THAT I WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE IN MY MAGAZINE. FOR EXAMPLE THE ROUGH DIY STYLE OF SNIFFIN‟ GLUE IS SOMETHING THAT I WOULD LIKE TO COPY TO GIVE MY MAGAZINE THE KIND OF PUNK AUTHENTICITY THAT WOULD SUITE A PUNK ROCK FANZINE.
