As someone who has championed 1980s fanzine 'The End' over the last few years, it was great to hear from Peter Hooton recently that a publisher has finally been secured in the form of 'Sabotage Times' James Brown and adidas.
Two years ago we met up with Peter and the publisher of 'The Liverpool Boys Are In Town' Book, (Bluecoat Press) to thrash out a deal but recession hit and it looked as though those many hours spent scanning 400 pages from 20 issues was a wasted exercise. 80s Casuals were also tempted to publish the tome and received a quote from our own printers but it was to no avail as it was thought that some sort of sponsorship was needed to help with costs. Step forward 80s favourites, adidas.
The book will retail at £20 + £7.50 p+p and can be purchased from Sabotage Times website with the chance to have a message inserted into the finished piece. The book is due for release in mid October.
