Cheers loads to Cubesville cover artist Joey Mutant for his excellent site Punx.UK

Having emptied out the zinefair box, I discovered back issues that were previously sold out!! 

Consequently, there are loads of back issues available at the Punx site's Cubesville shop.

Browse Punx for gigs in your area, get zines, read them on the bus. Bang-on!

Buy now! The Vegan's Guide to People Arguing with Vegans

Available now - the publication that turned arguing with vegans on its head.

36-page A6 pocketbook format with two-colour card cover. Wow.

"People new to veganism may initially be surprised by the cornucopia of codswallop said about what is, after all, a constructive, compassionate lifestyle choice.

"As they soon discover, ignorance knows no borders, and the crassness, callousness and empty-headed nonsense in this collection is just the tip of the iceberg.

"This invaluable, interactive guide collects together some of the worst arguments against veganism to give you a flavour of what to expect from non-vegans.

"Enjoy the sheer absurdity of people arguing with vegans!"

Vegan's Guide...

Review: Ted Curtis - The Darkening Light (Itchy Monkey Press)

Here's a review of Ted Curtis' book The Darkening Light from the latest Cubesville fanzine.

This is the best UK punk zine of nowadays." Active Distribution

It is 1986, two years after Crass have called it a day, and the anarchopunk scene feels like it's falling apart. Heavy metal has ransacked punk like a muscle-bound Viking invader and Crass Utopianism is as murky as the homebrewed lager drunk by The Darkening Light's main protagonist, Frank. In the transition between anarchopunk and UKHC, Frank and his friends tumble into their huntsab group's Sherpa van to journey between Wiltshire and Wood Green for an all-day squat gig featuring Antisect, Atavistic and Heresy. Ted Curtis's writing captures the mood of dislocation and isolation and the tuppence ha'penny hedonism of homebrew and glue as Frank fumbles for answers in a contradictory scene whose protagonists wrap its rules around their own awkward personalities. The anarchopunk preoccupation with veganism chokes in the blue haze of rollup smoke and is muted behind the pandemonium and horror stories that fly around the gig.
As much as The Darkening Light could be a story about DIY culture at its most abrasive, it serves as a prelude to alcoholism and mental health issues. Indeed, its frankness could provide answers to many an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, anger management workshop or cognitive behavioural therapy session.
Ian Glasper's account of the late 1980s UKHC movement, Trapped in a Scene, was possibly the first book that attempted to catalogue this subculture whose authenticity lay in its own obscurity. In an otherwise comprehensive study, Mr Glasper's interviews, band profiles and discographies catalogue the music scene of the time, but struggle to capture the mood. Curtis's worm's eye view peers, totally sozzled, between the fissures of fact and fiction to produce a piece of subculture writing that ranks with the best.
