Now if you’re on the old Facebook thing then you’ll have seen this yesterday – but it gives us massive pleasure to announce the first interview in the forthcoming new issue of Lights Go Out – with the mighty Nerf Herder!
Southern California’s NERF HERDER do not need much of an introduction. Most people in the scene over the age of 25 will be fully aware of their signature work, perhaps the very pinnacle of Geek-Core – the theme tune to Joss Whedon / Bad Robot’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series. People might also remember their serious touring ethic from back in the day. And they just happened to be getting back into the business at the same time as we came up with an idea for the next issue.
We managed to catch up with them and have a chat! You’ll be able to read it all in Issue 29 – coming soon!!!
Featuring: Therapy?, Three Colours Red, DSA. The Thingz, The Tickturds, Cheetah Chrome, Mark Bell and more…..

We’re not going to put a third run out as Issue 29 isn’t far off now…
We also have found 1 copy of the original zine we put out back in 2008. Grab it here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?product=lights-go-out-issue-01
Cheers for the support everyone and issue 29 news coming VERY soon!
Thanks so much to everyone who has picked up the latest issue of Lights Go Out. It’s always amazing how quickly you lovely people rush to pick a copy up, it is very much appreciated. So, for this issue we’re going to be doing a second print run. It’ll take around a week to ten days to get some more into stock and wwe’ll let you know on here when they’re available.
You can also keep up to speed with things over on our Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/lightsgooutzine - if you feel like it, do like us on there to see our updates as and when we post them. Don’t worry it’s not all that often.
Issues 29 and 30 are both underway (and maybe more looking at it). We’ve got some pretty sweet interviews in the pipeline as well, if they all materialise we’re going to have a great few issues coming soon.
We’ve actually set a deadline of the end of July to have the next issue ready to go to print. I’m very excited about this issue and it’s going to be a first for Lights Go Out – it’s actually going to be our first split zine!!! That’s right we’re collaborating with one of my favourite zines around – more news on this very soon!!!
Issue 28 features chats with Andy Cairns from Therapy? , Ben Harding from Three Colours Red, Bonsai Kitten, The Thingz, DSA, The Tickturds and Cheetah Chrome from legendary punk band The Dead Boys!
The cover artwork was designed by Mark Bell of Mug fame.
