The first ever split zine we’ve been involved in. Best of all it’s with one of our favourite zines, Gadgie! High fives to Marv from Gadgie for the opportunity.
36 pages (18 per zine), Gadgie‘s part is superb as always. Our side is the usual stuff, just more Star Wars themed. Interviews and all the usual stuff – so please grab a copy (or ten) from us here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?product=lights-go-out-issue-29
And I’ll announce some more bits for issue 30 in the coming weeks. Rest assured we’re already working hard on it and it’s coming along nicely too! November release for this one I’d imagine!
This is not only a Star Wars special, but it’s also our first ever split zine! We’re sharing this print run with the rather amazing zine that is Gadgie!!!
The new issues stars: Nerf Herder, Officer Down, Fights & Fires, Idle Class, Angry Lennox, Guerrilla Monsoon & Fisti Kuffs. Along with a few columns & Star Wars related ramblings. A feature called Punk Wars – where punk legends battle it out is in there too.
It was great fun to put together and I hope you’ll all enjoy reading it too!

It’s fair to say that Inspiral Carpets can quite easily be considered as legends. The band formed in 1983 and have a very unique garage indie sound that saw them release some seriously amazing albums and singles. Coming to prominence in the late 80’s with the rise of the Manchester scene they had a string of hits in the 90’s with such classic as “This Is How It Feels” and “Dragging Me Down” before a break in 1995. Back now with their original vocalist at the helm, the band are putting new music out again. We were lucky enough to be able to send a few questions to the way of Craig Gill, drummer for Inspiral Carpets since day one…

Copenhagen based Hexis was a band to be noticed at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. They played fast, hard, and like the beast of seven heads emerging from the darkest depths of the ocean, Hexis has ascended upon mankind with his crushing delivery of blackened mix of metal/hardcore/post-metal. Roya caught up with the band and had a chat about everything…
