Fanzines- part of the Manchester Histories Festival

As a follow-up to the Introduction to Fanzines session, this promises to be a more in-depth look at Manchester’s music scene and the relationship that the fanzines developed with the music of the era.

Chaired by Dave  Haslam again, the panel includes Mike Don from Mole Express (legendary local underground paper with its heyday in the early 1970s), plus Liz Naylor’ (of post-punk City Fun fame), Bob Dickinson (a contributor to the likes of New Manchester Review, and City Fun), and Dan Russell (from the contemporary fanzine Things Happen).

Expect the panellists to recount tales of Manchester’s music scene; to celebrate fanzines and analyse their relationship to the political underground, and to other independent and/or marginalised cultural activity in past eras; and to discuss the significance of fanzines and other self-published/alternative publications in an era of blogs, digital technology and social media.
