A Little mixed up, London 2011...

After a few months off from the fanzine, we're busy working on issue 10 which will be off to the printer soon and on sale from early June.

We're doing two issues this year with issue 11 out on 1 December. This issue is brimming with all your old favourites, plus we've a cd giveaway with live tracks from Scottish beatsters, The Laynes, recorded on 26 Feburary 2011 at Ivory Blacks, Glasgow when they supported Secret Affair.*** If you'd like to order in advance for issues 10 and 11 the price is £5.50 UK, £7.50 Europe and £8.70 Rest of the World. Or buy them individually for £3/£4/£4.60. Payment can be made by paypal to doublebreasted@hotmail.com (send as gift) or if you'd rather pay by cheque or postal order, contact me and i'll let you know where to send it. I've had to give up the PO Box as the annual fee has increased dramatically.

***due to the increased postal charges for adding a cd in with a magazine to send outwith the UK, the CD will only be available to UK customers. However, should overseas readers wish the cd, the extra postage is 40p for Europe and £1.50 for Rest of the World.
