Yep, with Issue 23 due in any day now it’s time to offer a great bundle on zines! Basically we’re doing 10 zines for £5.00 – you’ll not only get issues of Lights Go Out – but also some other zine titles, chosen at random, but you’ll get at least 10 zines in the bundle, maybe even more. I’ll also lob in anything else I have kicking around – could be stickers, could be CD’s, could be badges – but it’ll be a real bundle of fun and of course loads of zines to read!
You can pick this bundle up from the Lights Go Out shop now! You can go directly to it by clicking HERE!
Please do support the zine and pick a bundle up from us! Cheers!
Featuring interviews with Crazy Arm, Worthwhile, RAD, The 5 String Drop Out Band, Menshevik, Burning Idols and Inflammable Material Records. There’s also a great piece on Nirvana in this issue, well worth checking out. Band profiles from the likes of Sink Alaska, The Tickturds & The Migraines as well. And of course you get the usual columns and reviews as you’d expect. But, we also have Claire’s origami section – hell yeah!!!
The cover was drawn by the lovely Mr. Alex Simpson (thanks mate) and the layout completed by Chris Blizzard (cheers).

Issue 23 is almost ready to go, pretty quick work after Issue 22 as well, productivity is obviously at an all time high right now. It’s also time for another announcement about the new issue – we’re pleased to confirm that we have an exclusive chat with those Devon rogues, Crazy Arm. Darren Johns kindly chatted to us and Edward Ling posed the questions. You’ll be able to read this interview in all it’s glory in the new issue, due out next month!
Issue 22 is pretty close to being sold out now, we have around 10 copies left only, so please move fast to get your copy, once they’re gone, no reprints! The closing date for submissions to Issue 21 is this coming Thursday 14th November. But I’m very excited about what’s to come in issue 23…..
Also in January, Issue 24 will hit the street, once again it’ll be a limited run with my gig year in review…
One of those bands are the amazing Worthwhile. Hailing from California, these guys play some of the best melodic hardcore that I’ve heard for ages. I was able to catch up with vocalist James from the band and have a chat about stuff. This interview will run in Issue 23 of Lights Go Out. But, as a special treat for you all, it’s now also online for your reading pleasure!
You can check the interview out here: http://www.lightsgoout.co.uk/?p=10875
As to what else will be in Issue 23 – well I am pleased to confirm we have chats with The 5 String Drop Out Band, RAD and Burning Idols already nailed down. I’m hoping a couple more interviews will come back that I’m just waiting on.
Deadline for submissions for this issue will be Monday 11th Nov. Cheers!
Yep, time for another online exclusive post. This time Edward Ling has been good enough to fire us over another live review from Worcester. This time a show featuring: Crucial Section + Geriatric Unit + King of Pigs from the Firefly venue at the end of Septemember

In zine news, Issue 22 is flying out, so thanks for all the support. It’s much appreciated. Currently we’re working on the next three (yes, three!) issues of Lights Go Out. There’ll be my end of year review (Mr. T, aka The Ed) of the gigs I visited. There’ll be a “normal” issue and we also working on our first ever split zine with another amazing UK zine. I’ll announce more as and when we have it! Cheers.
