new stockists...

In addition to our usual stockists in Glasgow, Beard is now available in Edinburgh's Analogue Books (Victoria St), Newcastle's Bookville (High Bridge), and London's Rough Trade Covent Garden.
We're also in the process of organising stockists in Liverpool, Leicester and Manchester.

I'll also be attending the London Zine Symposium in a few weeks, so come and get Beard then if you like! And I'm sure I can get some more copies in Rough Trade and Selectadisc while I'm down.

Media whores

Yes, we're getting much love in the press today. We're in the Independent's fanzine feature and also have a wee mention in the Herald:

Our pals at Diskant and Jockrock have also given us a mention. And we're in Press Gazette too!

The Indy were disappointed I didn't have a beard and instead resembled a young Paul Gambaccini. Well, what can I say?

it's official - we're Britain's best music zine!

Yes! Beard has triumphed at the EMAP Fanzine Awards 2005, winning best music zine category. Whoop whoop!
Congrats to runners up Satan's Fish Tank and everyone else I drunkenly chatted with.
They've yet to post the pics, but here's all the info about the winners. I love the made up quote they've attributed to me. Hilarious!

A couple of news items about the win:

Not from the awards, but here's one of Beard's indie celebrity readers:

And in further awards news, Beard snapper Kieran Dodds is up for young photographer of the year! Well done that man. I particularly like the scones...
