“The NEW WAVE is like a spring clean. You were prepared to throw out the rubbish in your wardrobe and your record collection. So why not chuck out all the prides & prejudices cluttering up your personality???” (Pete Shelley, Plaything #2)

Another Subculture has been putting out cassette magazines, gig listings and wallet destroying pandemic printer zines since 2013, trying to signal boost London DIY punk and hardcore in whatever format makes sense at the time. 2019-21 saw monthly calendars with hundreds of gigs all across the despicable city – and now, in 2022, making some more zines and putting some nights on all along the Surrey Canal Road.
