PUMPING STOMACHS

This is a photograph of six of the seven current contributions to the previously mentioned, second official MUSEUMS release; BIGGEST FAN, released in time to coincide with the STOMACH PUMP exhibition of the 7th-12th May. 
Thus far, titles include LUNCHTIME DIAGNOSTICS by KATY FLYNN; FLESH WORLD by CRAIG JOHN BARR & PALS (not pictured); WHEN I GET DEALT A LOW HAND I GO ALL IN ANYWAY by BETHANY HERMITT; I JUST LOVE PEOPLE by LIBERTY DENT; REGULAR EXERCISE &  AMOTS CH PMUP (the latter was previously available for free pick up as an edition of ten from GOOD GRIEF & will be reprinted and included for relevance) and of course, the most recent addition THE SEXPLORER by MIRIAM AVERY & EDWIN STEVENS, perhaps the most shocking, gross and hilarious thing I've read in a long time. Also in the line-up is the half complete KNOW YOUR WOMB by members of NO WOMB who are to make their debut performance at SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY this Sunday along with WAITERS, DINNER PARTY, SEX HANDS, TALK NORMAL, WAY THROUGH, PHEREMOANS & HOTPANTS ROMANCE at the Angel Centre for C.O.A.T, yeah baby! They're also showing CARTUNE EXPRESS films & there's a performance by GIRL MOUNTAIN. Hot tamale! Get a ticket! Really!
What is more urgent, though, is the MOUNT PLEASANT exhibition, which will be the event of the month for one and all, go to Islington Mill around  Eight O'clock on Friday 30th April (in a few hours... real time) for some free wine and ART PARTY.

STOMACH PUMP EXHIBITION AND SALFORD ZINE LIBRARY LAUNCH

ONCE AND FOR ALL! ALL AND FOR ONCE! The Stomach Pump archive is going to be exhibited. With help from the SALFORD ZINE LIBRARY and C.O.A.T, between the 7th May-12th May at Islington Mill, Salford, all 788 fanzines will be displayed for your perusal. The collection, which was breifly previewed on the walls of a flat in Glasgow last September, dates back from the 70's and spans right into the early 90's, each zine has been photocopied or mimeographed and they come from all around the world. There will be hand drawn covers, typewriting, letraset, letters, short stories, comics strips, jokes and general fandom. You are INNNNVITED, as ever, to come along and look and touch and photocopy your favourite bits. 
Alongside Stomach Pump will be the official launch of the Salford Zine Library's collection, which has been growing for the past few months, tasters of which can be seen on their blog. It is a very important thing they are doing and so worthy of celebration!
Also for your viewing pleasure will be a small selection of original work from Museums One! Hot tamale!

Come party from 7pm on the 7th May 2010!
We'd love it!

It's likely that if you're reading this I have already asked you, or am soon to get round to it, however, if you are neither of those things and would like to be in on it (there are still some slots unaccounted for), drop a line to jhessiggins@hotmail.co.uk and i'll let you know the score.
