INTO THE DIRT BORN IN 2016 AND INSPIRED BY PUNK FANZINES FROM 1976.
NO ONE BOTHERED TO MAKE ONE OF THESE THINGS BEFORE.
ITS NOT A STORY, ITS NOT A HISTORY, ITS NOT OFFICIAL, IT’S NOT AN OPINION , IT’S JUST US WITH SOME CAMERAS, PHONES , A TYPEWRITER AND SOME GREAT CONTRIBUTORS CHATTING ABOUT GRIME AND THEN SHOWING IT THROUGH THE LENS AND TYPEWRITER OF A PUNK FANZINE.
EASY REALLY, NO ONE ELSE DONE IT BEFORE
READ IT, IT’S THE ONLY ISSUE SO DON’T ASK FOR ANOTHER ONE
Since our start in 1981 we have influenced and been influenced by British subculture. Never deviating from that, we have remained true to our core values.
We follow and examine subculture, whether it attaches to our brand or if it exists in a wider Underground universe.
Looking at Grime in 2016 it’s not difficult for us to imagine how that subculture might look as the predominant sub culture in 1976. There are some similarities between the two genres but we are not looking to compare them. If this was 1976 and Grime was king then it would be reported though a zine in the same way that punk had been.
We just liked the idea of fusing the two together, the Punk Zine re-imagined for Grime.
A cover price of just 30p the zine will be available at the launch event and from the Underground Store in Soho
