The End - Returns

The End was a legendary set of Fanzines from the 80's, it is now published in one mammoth book.

It was the first terrace fanzine, the godfather of the football fanzines but still dressed in punk's cut and paste graphics. We're re-issuing them in one volume.

Jesus this has taken a long time. 20 years in fact. If you’ve never seen The End now’s your chance to find out about a unique chapter in British publishing history. Long before casual was ever really recognised as a youth cult a group of Liverpudlians created a home-made fanzine capturing life on the streets of their city, the local music and political scenes, and not forgetting the terraces. It was very funny, very roughly laid out and very popular. Its greatest champion was John Peel who would regularly name check the magazine on his Radio One show and also invited the editors onto national television to discuss their cult fanzine.

Hardcore  fans of The End  have been badgering the former editors to bring out a best of for decades. Now Sabotage Times and adidas have come together to help them finally produce one volume with every issue in it. The book will include every Ins and Outs list, every music interview, every letters page, every one of the classic End illustrations and interviews with Billy Bragg and The Clash amongst many others. In addition to all 20 issues there’ll also be a new Ins & Outs list, the memories of the three editors, and various other articles from contributors and admirers. This week we’ll be putting up a gallery of images from the magazine but this is the first opportunity to buy the book.

The End is now available from both stores, 73 St Vincent Street & St Enoch Centre, or online HERE.
