Over at PBP we get pretty mellifluous about the independent publishing world in London.

So it is with great excitement that we note the release of the 4th, 5th and 6th issues of No.ZINE by the incredibly talented Patrick Fry

You can purchase and find more information about No.ZINE here – the quality of the contributors, layout and  design is exceptional. Grab copies while you still can.

Here’s a sneak peek…

In other news, we hear whisperings of a new zine by name of ‘TEAM‘, winging its first edition your way imminently. The content they’re had in already, visible via the tasters on their blog, looks absolutely amazing. To whet your appetite, here are two examples of the work of Katie Scott, the latest confirmed contributor to TEAM. You can see more of her work on her flickr here

The Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive


Greetings all.

Just a short post today.  I want to draw your attention to the launch of the new online Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive.  This great website includes essays, rare videos and pictures and more concerning all the great youth tribes: rockers, hippies, skinheads, emos, mods, punks, New Romantics and so on.  You have to register to see most of the good stuff, but it’s worth it.

To find out more you can read this Guardian article:

Or you can visit the site itself:

I will leave you with this nostalgic song about the 1960s by Brixton ska favourites Maroon Town:

Maroon Town- Nostalgia

Like what you heard? Maroon Town perform this Friday 7th May 2010 at the fabulous Hootananny, Brixton.  And it’s free!

Punch, Brothers, Punch


“I came across these jingling rhymes in a newspaper, a little while ago, and read them a couple of times. They took instant and entire possession of me. All through breakfast they went waltzing through my brain; and when, at last, I rolled up my napkin, I could not tell whether I had eaten anything or not.”

Today marks the renaming of this blog to ‘Punch, Brothers, Punch’ and all the better for it.

Additionally and much more importantly, I welcome and introduce two new writers as contributors to PBP.

For now, thanks for reading and I hope this finds you well and healthy.
