R*E*P*E*A*T's Manics inspired book

R*E*P*E*A*T, possibly the world's longest running MSP Fanzine, has just published its first book. Focussing particularly on the years before the internet made everything easily accesible, the book includes some rare Manic Street Preachers photos, interviews and other ephemera, as well as chronicling the other bands and causes that the fanzine turned record label has been involved with since 1994.

You can look at a sample of the 150 pages (over a third in full colour) and order copies here - £10 including postage. http://midline.net/repeatbook/

"The early Manic Street Preachers ignited an explosion of DIY culture among their following which expressed itself particularly vividly the form of fanzines, and nobody has done more to keep that flame of inspiration burning than R*E*P*E*A*T. The questioning, dissenting spirit crackles off the page."

Simon Price, Music Journalist, author of 'Everything: A Book About the Manic Street Preachers' and curator of 'Stay Beautiful' Club

I think it would be an extra £3 to send to Poland, and yes we do accept paypal, see http://www.repeatfanzine.co.uk/Rants/book%20press.htm for the link (Richard_rose@hotmail.com)

Thanks!

Mr Nicholas Wire

Thanks for your interest everyone.

Now here's a message from our sponsors:

"The fact that we've got like 25 fanzines and 50 unofficial websites and all the rest of it, does give you a gratifying smile because those people aren't just dedicated to the band, they're dedicated to the whole lifestyle, the literary aspects, the film aspects, the whole package really. It's not just liking the music... I wouldnít be chatting to you if I didnít respect R*E*P*E*A*T... I admire anyone whoís hung in there that long and itís nice that thereís still enthusiasm around!"
Nicky Wire, Manic Street Preachers

That looks brilliant Rosey, I've never seen a real-life fanzine and was never part of a proper fan scene back in the day so getting this might belatedly make up for the life I haven't led.

Looks wicked. Just ordered a copy.

For the first time in a while I remembered I do not actually need a paypal account to buy stuff and also knew I would have enough in my account. That is my luxury shopping for the year done.
