Angry Violist mailing list

Hello everyone

I’ve entered the 21st century and have set up a mailing list for Angry Violist-related updates. By which I mean, sign up and when I release a new issue you’ll get a little email from me to tell you about it.

You can sign up by clicking below:

Also, I have updated my Etsy store with a bumper fun bag of issues 4, 5, 5.5, 6 and a badge all together in one neat, sexy package:

New Issue: Angry Violist 6 now available

In this installment of my zine about music, music-making and punk rock/alternative/experimental string playing.

This issue:

  • Getting over notions of ‘being good enough’
  • What happened when Joshua Bell, world class violinist, went busking in the Tube
  • Viola FAQ: everything you’ve always wanted to know about violas
  • Interview with Warren Ellis, musician in Dirty Three, Grinderman and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
  • The politics of calling yourself a musician: who has the right? what does it mean?
  • Heroes and all-stars from the world of far-out, left-field string playing

Written July 2012. 32 pages (inc covers), b&w, text heavy, A5 (half sized), bound with staples.

International Alternative Press Fair, 4-5 August, London

Well hello there.

I will be tabling at the the 2nd International Alternative Press Festival on Saturday 4th August at Conway Hall, London, UK.

I’ll be selling zines and comix and mags and alternative press goodies from Cambridge – PLUS I’ll be premiering Angry Violist issue 6 (sneak preview above of the flats ready to be taken to the printers).

This festival is going to be awesome and is going to be chock full of self-published goodness all this weekend: if you’re around, drop by and say hello.
