Ghost Fuck (Issue 3)

Issue 3 is now online. I always kept it off the net because having real things is important, but the time to make issue 4 has come, and I want people to read issue 3 and contribute.

Ghost Fuck is a positive, feminist, and now vegan (hooray!) space and I would love your interviews, drawings, features, and contributions. Anything with heart.

Hey GFs

An update on zine progress and…ixxue 4!

I am running a live zine brief at Supernormal Festival which I am really excited about. Participants have 48 hours of the festival to make one zine page about their time there and the results will be squished together in a live collaboration here: supernormalzinestumblr.com

Also, in new vegan adventures, rolling scones has started.

GHOST FUCK IXXUE 4

Let’s do it all again! Write, draw, sew, whatever…do it from the heart and make it count. I would love to have you in it. X X

Lizzy was one of the first grrrls who conntacted me when I started this tumblr. She wrote for grrrls in subculture #1 how it is to be the only girl in a band and especially how it is to be the only female playing at a show.
Now her third GHOST FUCK is out! And it´s incredible! I love it so much!
First of all the design and all the artworks are amazing! It´s just beautiful! My favourite articles were the one about Kurt Cobain by Damien Clarkson, Lizzy´s review on “From the back of the room” and the letter she and her band wrote, cause they did not wanna play with another band who has sexist lyrics. If you should be in that situation one day, you could use their letter as pattern!
Thank you Lizzy for continuing your work!
Love, Uzi

Last night we launched Ghost Fuck 3 and a preview of ‘Outsider Art’  Zines and screened 'From the Back of the Room'  - a documentary about women in the DIY punk scene at Cafe Kino in Bournemouth.

Massive thanks to everyone that came, we were packed out and had people sitting on the staircases into the basement. It was magical to have so many people turn up and see the film and buy zines - we made £73.24 from zine sales. Half will go to Amy the filmmaker and half will go to Amnesty International. 

It was weird to do and put on something like this thats not a show, and I am so hyped to put on more events like this very soon.

Thanks also to: Freddie Harrison for projectin’ and Fifi for speaker set up.

From The Editor:

So recently my band Witch Cult were on the bill with a band whose name and lyrics were disgustingly sexist and anti-female. After refusing to play the show unless the band were removed, that band are now off the bill.

Both Dom and I sent messages to the band explaining why, and they replied with an apology, which is a credit to them. 

So this is a open letter to any band in punk  / hardcore whatever who think it is funny and cool to write lyrics or treat women like they are lower beings. 


My message: 


Hey guys.


So, Im Lizzy, I play bass in Witch Cult. So, my band are pulling out of the Sheffield show because your band and lyrics have no place in our scene.

I understand you maybe think your lyrics are funny because they are so base and perhaps what you consider to ‘punk’.

You have absolutely no place in the scene.

Would you say those lyrics to my face? Come to one of our shows and say that to me.

The way you have de-humanised women and laughed at their sexuality doesn’t even make me mad – I really wanna just tell you some things.

Rape is a huge issue in our culture, and labelling any girl as a slut is not yours, or anyone’s decision. I know it is only a song you have written, but you have no idea how much shit like this perpetuates the idea that women are inferior, sexualised beings. Domestic Violence, pay gaps, and stereotyping all stem from things like this.

Use Punk music to push things forward boys, and don’t think that attitudes like yours will ever survive.

Some things it would be worth you checking out:

Hi ____.

Unfortunately Witch Cult will not be able to play this show.

As you may or may not be aware, we are a band driven by what we believe; especially equality between all races and genders.

Sadly it seems that you do not see eye to eye with us on attitudes towards women and that is something we cannot tolerate.

Their music is the antithesis to what we try to put across and we would not feel comfortable playing with them.

Peace, love, powerviolence,

Witch Cult

If you don’t think you’re punk

Then you already are.

Hey! I was just wondering if you’d be interested in an article about male feminism for Issue #3. Nothing dumb and whiny, but just a quick one on why I stand for it and the prejudices guys suffer from other guys who don’t understand feminism, or from people who are prejudiced towards feminism themselves. Those kinda vibes.

Let me know, I’d love to contribute!
