As you know, the big news is this:
Bearded is in stores 29 January
That includes independent record stores, WHSmiths, Borders and newsagents across the UK – over 1000 stores in all… so buy it.
On a related note, as you know, Bearded is printed on very special, 100% recycled paper and costs a fortune to print up. As a result, this time around we are going to have an extremely limited number of freebies to dish out which will go to advertisers (still available by the way) and Beardaid supporters. So to guarantee your copy (the last four have disappeared within a day or so), you’ll need to get your friends to advertise (from £70) or join Beardaid for just £2 a month (www.beardaid.co.uk).
Those Beardaid folks will also get free entry to our relaunch party – also on 29 January – at The Macbeth in Shoreditch (door price £5), where the ridiculously talented line-up of Allez Allez, Ratface, Beestung Lips and Ice, Sea Dead People will be entertaining. Flyer and poster art attached if you wish to spread the word.
And on that, please take with you mine and Bearded’s very best wishes for 2009, I’m certain it is going to be a great year – for all of us.
PS: Always up for any help, advice or whatnot anyone has – especially regarding publicity for the mag around launch.
