In A Blue Vein's Slight Return

The original bluetones fanzine, In A Blue Vein is being revived for a one off issue. I have just received the following statement from the person who's running with it Mik Coates:

Although i have had the blessing from superior to call my fanzine 'In A Blue Vein' i must stress it will almost definitely not be up to the high standards of Eds fanzine, particulary as far as reproduction is concerned as i do not have the money to make something so well presented, i will do my upmost best to make it as good as i possibly can, hopefully a decent printer will be available as i wont have to resort to the decent photocopier. It will contain an interview with each of the lads separately(questions compiled from fans and myself), 2 pages of gig reviews, stories and in 1 case drawings(!) - so if you have any reviews of the recent shows please, please, please, send it in - i want to make this for the fans so i want them all to be involved, you help me and i'll help you. Also included will be a recent news section, possibly a bit for an old article from IABV, a blast from the past style thing, and as you know, a bit about the fanbase on the net, with a top of the pops style run-down of the best websites dedicated to the bluetones - so keep up the good work and i promise i will try to produce a fanzine worthy of the blue army - this should be completed in 2 to 3 weeks with a chance for a festival based one this summer (if all goes well) - but don't hold your breath.

I am hoping that the first 100 copies will come complete with acetate wrap and maybe some sort of bluetones sticker or something, whatever superior are willing to donate - i want it to look more than just a crappy old run-of-the-mill fanzine, only time will tell though.

cheers, and if you have any suggestions, comments, reviews or are interested in this fanzine, do not hesitate to contact me.
