!!! Rabble 5 !!!

Friday, December 14th, 2012

So the FIFTH installment of rabble arrived two weeks ago. Our super mega distro team have been lashing it out around not just Dublin, but all around Ireland as well as to our distro hubs around Europe. We’ve gone from 3,000 copies of a 16-pager, to 10,000 copies of a 32-page magazine in just over a year. That’s all down to the fact that we just can’t keep this on the shelves, so a big thanks to everyone out there who picks up a copy!

You can have a browse of this issue’s content over here, feel free to comment, fill out our reader survey (you could win a PRYZZ!) and support us. We detailed our costs in this issue as well as a breakdown of where our funding comes from. Imagine a magazine, comin out regularly, with the content YOU want to see, talking about issues that effect you and yours, that our usual state media apparatus won’t touch? One that’s owned by the people? One that can do some ballsy investigative journalism? One that has the few funny bits as well like? That could be rabble with YOUR help!!! If all our readers donated a tenner a year we would be well on our way, jus sayin!

We’ve also got the blog running with heaps of new content popping up there every few hours. The big thing for me in this issue is the quality of the illustrations throughout, particularly the contribution from comic book artist Philip Barrett for the Licensing Laws article which was so good we used it for the cover. Here’s a few of my own contributions:

The centrefold in this isse features the ‘There’s No Justice, There’s Just Us’ stencil piece that was re-done by artist ADW after the Gardai forced him to paint over the original (read the interview here). Here’s a timelapse he did of the piece:

Rabble 4 out pon the streets!

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Holy independent publishing fiends Batman! OK so us rabblers just got another issue done, that’s four so far… one every three months means SHEAAATTTTT the last year went by quick! This time round we’re on about the Youth Defence, the shtate of the FAI, festival madness and of course the winner of our Boomtown ticket competition is announced.

Every issue has been more solid than the previous one, but we still need MORE WRITERS! C’mon, there’s loads of yis out there who have a great way with words coupled with investigative minds so get in touch with us!

I’ve got a good few illustrations in it this time round, the one below highlighting the amazing services on offer in your local. Sure, with pubs this good, why would you need any sort of BYOB (or even booze free?) CULTURE?

In terms of distro, you can pick it up in the usual haunts (lots of new places being added to the list, big up to everyone who’s been getting in contact and looking after distro in their neck of the woods!). Most of them are out already and as per usual they’re flying out. If you’re far from a pick-up point and would like a few copies please get in touch and we’ll do our best to look after ye. And don’t forget to check out our merch page as well, we’ll be re-upping the tshirts sooooon, for the time being we got some ladies sizes as well as a nice selection of prints from our illustration crew dem.

What a year, roll on Issue FIVE!!!
