UPDATE 9TH SEPTEMBER 2020
THIS FANZINE IS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE VIA THIS LINK ON EBAY:
NOW ANNOUCING A SPECIAL BONUS 8-PAGE ISSUE FREE WITH THE MAIN FANZINE!
THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS WRITTEN IN JULY 2020
NEW Cherry Lipstick print fanzine – pre-sale now open!
Cherry Lipstick returns with its first ALL NEW edition since 2001. That’s right – a new fanzine, with articles from your favourite Cherry Lipstick writers that will NEVER be published on the website.
In 2019 we produced a special print edition celebrating the story of Early Duran (1972-1980). Now we return with a print fanzine with ALL NEW articles by our team of writers.
Without spoiling the fun of opening up your new issue when it arrives at your home, here is just some of what you can expect:
Our 5-star album review of Rio
Another entry from Simon Le Bon’s diary
The final part of our ‘Around the World in 40 Shows’ series
At least one new Lost Treasure and / or Forgotten Horror
One new joke (tbc) but mostly recycled ones that will make you laugh
Minimum 40 pages (content not finalized yet)
Put simply – if you liked Cherry Lipstick as a fanzine, if you’ve enjoyed the website – this is for you. Cherry Lipstick has thrived over 27 years as a place for creative thought, stimulating debate and healthy slosh of silliness. We are not about to chuck that reputation away lightly.
So why is this only on offer in a print edition?
For three reasons:
It’s better this way. The articles put together (long / short, serious / fun) complement each other in ways they cannot as one-off blogs on a website.
It is for those in the Cherry Lipstick club. It’s not for those clicking on a link out of vague interest.
Cherry Lipstick was a print fanzine, and this is a salute to our roots. As the editor, I love producing it, sending it out, and knowing you’ll get a thrill from opening and reading it. Enjoy some retro-fandom!
To confirm: none of this will ever be available on line.
So, how do you get this great fanzine?
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX DETAILS DELETED - SEE ABOVE LINK TO EBAY
5. You will be charged the equivalent in your local currency. This is currently for pre-order, with the fanzine expected to be sent out by the end of September.
6. I will automatically be sent a confirmation email by PayPal with your address.
7. Sit back and wait for Cherry Lipstick to arrive! Updates on postage will be posted on Twitter and FaceBook.
THIS IS WILL HAVE A LIMITED EDITION PRINT-RUN. After the pre-order is complete, there will a very limited number left over. Last year's fanzine sold out very quickly and many people were disappointed. So make sure you secure your copy by pre-ordering as soon as possible.
One more question to answer: is this Cherry Lipstick trying to make loads of money?
No – this will, at best, cover costs. It is much easier for me to post it on the website. This is being done because it’s the best way to enjoy what Cherry Lipstick does. I hope you think so too. Please, for the price of a coffee, join in with this fun way of enjoying our favourite band.
As Cherry Lipstick’s editor, I give you this guarantee – this would not be produced if it wasn’t to our exceptionally high standards. I’ve been sending out fanzines since 1993 and I wouldn’t want to lower any goodwill or memories that have been built up over three decades. You will enjoy it!
Editor, Cherry Lipstick
