Coming soon: Mod Zines 1978 – 1984 by Eddie Piller

I don’t know if this is the final cover image, but Mod Zines 1978 – 1984 by Eddie Piller is scheduled for release in October.

If the cover art changes, I’ll let you know. But in the meantime, the book, produced in conjunction with Steve Rowland and Omnibus Press, is currently in its final stages of work and is down to be released on 25th October 2018 according to Amazon.

This is a 160-page book with the content pretty self explanatory. This is a book that documents and celebrates the labour of love that was the fanzine during the mod revival years.

Fully illustrated with original artwork and photography, it features leading figures from the scene including fanzine editors, bands, DJs, promoters and journalists, with the main faces interviewed providing exclusive behind the scenes stories, anecdotes and memories.

All of that plus original, rare artwork from key issues as well as front covers and spreads from celebrated fanzines such as Direction Reaction Creation, Extraordinary Sensations, Roadrunner, Maximum Speed, Sense of Style, Sth Circular, Patriotic, Go Go, In The Crowd, Right Track, Beat That and many more.

If you were part of that scene or just want to know more about it, this is one for you. A perfect companion piece for the Mod Art book by Paul Anderson in fact, which has the same publisher and a similar release date.

If you want to get your name down for a copy of this, the book is available to pre-order now for £16.99.

Update: I have been informed by the authors that both the cover and title are not consistent with the final product. The cover art is still being finalised and the book’s content goes up to the present day rather than ending in 1984. It is still available to pre-order, but take note that there are potential changes to the final product.
