Just wanted to let you know about a new zine that I'm currently working on. It's called Avant-Garde and it's basically a zine to cover the independent arts and music scene in Ireland. I'm currently looking for bands who would like to have CDs reviewed and/or freelance journalists who might like to write a gig or CD review for future issues.
I have already received some EPs/singles from bands which I am in the process of reviewing and have received a few article contributions, one of which was written by Steven Rainey of BBC Radio 1 in Northern Ireland. The first issue of the zine was scheduled to be released in March but I have had to push back the deadline a little, however progress is definitely being made and I'm very excited about releasing the finished zine in the next few months.
If you would like any more information you can visit the zine's websites at http://www.myspace.com/avantgardeireland or http://www.bebo.com/avantgardez

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and hopefully I'll hear from some of you in the near future!
