THE NEXT BIG THING #28, 40th Anniversary Issue, 1977-2017. Lindsay Hutton started The Next Big Thing, named after a Dictators song, in early 1977
and published 23 issues in the next 10 years - that's an impressive schedule and a further 5
issues appeared sporadically over the next thirty years. Initially fired up by 'Punk', N.B.T.
increasingly sought out the raw rock'n'roll energy of punk's predecessors and earlier
influences. With extensive gig, record and zine reviews, charts and collages and articles
from an illustrious list of contributors. N.B.T. was always enthused, informative and
opinionated, articles are often handwritten and signed by the author - a neat personal touch,
and there's plenty of Scots phrases thrown in to baffle Sassenachs. Pure Dead Brilliant.
Issue 28, has editor Lindsays' reminiscences on his fanzine 'career', Amy Rigby's memories of
moving to NYC in 1976, Art Fein on being The Cramps' manager, a report from the
Fantastic Dracula Carnival in Benidorm, a story from J.D.King, hate mail, Norwegian
pop/punk duo The Dahlmanns, The Shizophrenics, a conversation between Laura Cantrell
and Amy Rigby and a letter from Morrissey (from 1983!) Plus a 7" single from The Dahlmanns. (Also available without the vinyl if you live in a record-player free household.)
7"x7" packaged with a header card, 32 pages, 2017.

FINALLY GOT THE NEWS
Finally Got the News uncovers the hidden legacy of the radical Left of the 1970s, a decade when vibrant social movements challenged racism, imperialism, patriarchy and capitalism itself. It combines written contributions from movement participants with original printed materials from pamphlets to posters, flyers to newspapers to tell this politically rich and little-known story.

NOTES FROM UNDERGROUND - STEPHEN DUNCOMBE
'From their origins in early 20th century sci-fi cults to their rapid proliferation in the wake
of punk rock, zines have established themselves as vital political and networking tools.
Stephen Duncombe explores the history and theory of zines and analyses the practice of revelling against a consumer society that cannibalises cultural rebellion.
This richly illustrated and researched study of zine culture is the first of it's kind and gives us a definitive guide to the contemporary underground'
Second Edition, 2008, 256 pgs.

FANTASTIC ARCHITECTURE - eds. Dick Higgins and Wolf Vostell
"This documentation of ideas and concepts of a new polymorphous reality is offered as evidence of the methods and processes that were introduced by FLUXUS, HAPPENINGS, and POP. A demand for new patterns of behaviour - new unconsumed ENVIRONMENTS. The accent in all of the works in this book lies on CHANGE - i.e. EXPANSION of physical surroundings, sensibilities, media, through disturbance of the familiar. ACTION IS ARCHITECTURE! EVERYTHING IS ARCHITECTURE! . . . our projects - our environments are meant to free man. ONLY THE REALIZATION OF UTOPIAS WILL MAKE MAN HAPPY AND RELEASE HIM FROM HIS FRUSTRATIONS! use your imagination! Join in ... share the power! share property!" - from the introduction.
