Start Select Reset Zine (SSRZ) is a physical newsletter posted via snail mail 4 times a year.
As the old certainties of Web2 creator capitalism crumble around us the ‘Support my email newsletter for just £5 a month and in return you’ll receive … more email‘ model seems like part of the problem not a solution.
Your subscription keeps unique content flowing from Permanently Moved and this blog, fostering real connection in a post Web2 world.
“A return to the real is the re-integration of natural daily rhythms (where possible) into one’s life. Do you know what the moon is doing tonight? The day begins when the dawn breaks the night, not when a clock strikes midnight. The sun sets, the day ends and the night begins.”
I have been making and creating zines for myself and my friends since I was about 10 years old.
My first ever zine was made during the summer holidays around 94/95. My friend Ben and I had a typewriter, pens, and the abuse of his dads workplace risograph machine. (An important lesson about how zines get made learnt at an early age!).
It ran for 3 issues.
On The Rag – Early 00’s
I was a regular contributor to the RIOT GRRL / feminist punk zine – On The Rag.
Published sporadically in Margate for several years. Next time I’m at my parents I’ll dig out some more issues and take photos.
Geekzine – Early 00s
I need to dig out issues and photograph them.
Geekzine was the semi-regular fanzine of the Margate based Geekscene DIY collective.
Poptastic Fantastic – Mid 00s
Absolute hipster bait. I don’t have any issues of this at all despite running for 20 something issues 🙁
If you picked up any copies of this zine in Dalston/Shoreditch/Nottingham/Leeds between 05-07 and still have one tucked away, please send me documentation! 🙏
Zine and Not Heard – 2011-15
ZANH was started by Tommy and Joel in 2011. A London based zine on at the forefront of the modern emo revival. I was a regular contributor to issues: Gig reviews, album reviews, live photos etc.
