is it national? Are we talking 1000s of copies flying (sorry) around the UK, or 10s of 1000s or 100s?
That probably doesn't help.
Are the Trust in it then?
we got a massive fancy live review that said many wonderful things. I've seen it online but just wondered how far it actually gets.
London is quite far.
My old band were in it a few times too but it was only ever something small. Still can't complain.
as far as i know, used to always be able to pick up copies in edinburgh/glasgow, possibly aberdeen too.
it's got a decent enough distribution in plenty of UK venues/bars/shops etc
bargain. it's not out in leeds yet
Lots of independent stores. I can get it in Bury St. Edmunds.
is 108,683 according to The Audit Bureau of Circulations (and they are really never wrong).
didn't realise the fly was that big
according to the ABC
i sometimes think because they are free they have to be too nice at times,
but generally by far one of the best mags around, and gives time to bands i have never heard of which always rules.
that they're far too nice - if an album gets 3/5 in fly then its shite...
you NEVER find a bad review in there. EVER. Which means that those stickers on the front of CD's get away with an incomprehensable amount of lying.
ok for free toilet reading material
BAD for any sort of meaningful/insightful journalism
for he review in the Fly says:
"International Trust don't give a flying fuck; After years as bystanders they've gazed through the detritus of other's posturing and image; Experience has allowed them to hone what really matters - the simplistic immediacy and balls-out lyrical honesty of a life affirming, nicotine-compulsive tune. New single "Talk of the Town" might physically clock in at less than three minutes but it will be in your head for the next decade. "Bruce Lee" nonchalantly attacks the arrogant ambition of naive star-chasers, but by simple virtue of being the only Oi! Punk terrace chant-laced bubblegum-n-grit Botempisynthpop anthem you'll hear this year or any other, effortlessly swindles the next potential pseudo-Kooky character of their requisite Warholian 15 minutes: When having their cake and eating it, International Trust puke it up and piss on it.
Tonight's pub-wide record night highlights a determination to shun predictable routes to fame, fortune, and the welcoming embrace of women with unfeasibly large breasts. It's already made them legends within their own milieu but this could steamroller into something much more spectacular.

some sort of American singing group at school or something. I'm sure i heard that phrase in Saved by the Bell
