The Rollmo Prefab Sprout Fanzine – Complete

rollmoBack with the fanzines, and this is the classic, non-official, 1990s Rollmo! produced by John Birch.

It’s been available previously as a set of image files, but I’ve created a set of PDF facsimiles which are a lot easier to view and use. And even now they’re very worthwhile, collating interviews and cuttings, some of which aren’t available generally elsewhere. Rollmo was always a bit more ambitious than its peers, nicely laid out and with good graphics.

The set starts with a profile of the band before starting the fanzine proper, which ran for 13 free issues until it became uneconomic and recipients mostly declined to pay – by this time the fanzine was mostly about other Kitchenware bands. It started up again shortly after in the “CD Fanzine” format, and in a future post I’ll be providing a “make your own CD Fanzine” kit with full artwork, etc.
