ANARCHY 1966 PROVO ZINE

We don't do politics here at Anglozine, we just liked the pretty colours of the cover of this political pamphlet - it matches our Jook Orange cardigan really well  https://www.anglozine.london/collections/knitwear/products/jook-orange-shetland-zip-cardigan  Its why we picked up the zine in the first place! apologise for upsetting any political animals reading this.   The movement was Dutch and so there is a definite nod to The Netherlands flag with the cover art here.   Launching in 1964 Provo combined three countercultural elements: an emerging group of angry, alienated young people; provocative methods of the performance artist Robert Jasper Grootveld; and the revolutionary ideas of philosophy student Roel Van Duyn. 1968 gets banded around quite a bit as the stylish revolutionary year, but here the White Bicycle...

RAVE AUGUST 1966

Rave magazine, rare as rocking horse doo-doo and always amazes 1980's ravers as they thought their scene coined the 'rave' phrase.   There is no Spectrum flyer or floppy neon beach hats, smiley badge in here sunshine. Here we have the East Ends fab four writing duo; Ronnie Lane (Plonk) and Steve Marriot of The Small Faces.  One of the most stylish and superb sounding British bands of the 1960's.  Not one of Steve's finest looks I'll admit here on the cover of RAVE August 1966 perhaps the August heat had got to him. This magazine was actually marketed as a teenage girls magazine but within certain circles this magazine has a genuine cult status and can collect a pretty penny...

The Sunday Times 28th March 1971

That was close it was almost to the day that this post tied in with the date on The Sunday Times supplement, missed it by a day.  The photographer Red Saunders is a fellow Hackney boy and worked with The Sunday Times for 2 years, he was a founder of Rock Against Racism in 1976 (The movement that saw The Clash play in Victoria Park Hackney in 1978).  Red devastatingly had his photographic archive destroyed by an arson attack and so these magazines should be appreciated and used in even more flyers and zines. Considering its only one page the impact of this image made quite an impression on youth across the country, it has been used on flyers, zines and...

The Sunday Times - 2nd August 1964

This was one of those golden Ebay moments, in the early days of the virtual jumble sale from silicon valley, picked up for pennies.  Having never found a rare 7" record at Oxfam for 50p or a hard back first edition at a church garden fete worthy of Sotherans Piccadilly bookshop - this is our gloat find. 1964 many active mods believe that 1964 was the nail in the coffin of the genuine mod scene.  To hell with that these Johnny-come -lately's look super smart even the mockers on the last page- kind of.  While not a zine in the least the images in this colour supplement have featured in zines and graced club flyers from Toronto to Tokyo. The...

Anglozine Issue 1

Anglozine issue 1 here in its full digitized glory. The latter part of our labels name is Zine and so it felt quite appropriate to rustle one up. It’s loosely based around: clothing, fashion, dress sense and I guess going forward that’s what they’ll all be about; because that’s all that interests us really. Issue one includes Q&A’s with LOOSE (zine extrodinare), Eddie Piller (owner of Acid Jazz ) John Marchant (John Marchant Gallery/Jamie reid), Claire Duport (illustrator former WAD stylist) and long time friend Vincent Mare (owner Desastre records). Issue 2 will be out some time in February 2019 and will include so far Q&A’s with: Frida Wannerberger, Paul Gorman, and Rutger Fuchs…………….On that bombshell
