Hardcore Is More Than MusicHardcore Is More Than Music fanzine was an artistic collaboration that I co-produced with artist Nina Manandhar.
We hand printed the first batch in Nina's dad's print shop in Acton and carried them in 2 big suitcases.
The launch of each issue was accompanied by an event or gig. For the first issue I made a 20ft box at Chelsea College of Art and the band Nought played inside the box. It was the first gig since the Sex Pistols had played there 2 decades before.
Nina and I handed out 1000 copies at the music festival All Tomorrow's Parties in 2002.
