Given that making records was not enough work and our forthcoming releases were not that much postponed (although we really wish to have a couple new CDs & tapes out in the summer), putting together the pilot issue of a fanzine seemed like the best thing to do while the overstretched Winter morphs into a sudden sweltering humid hell here in the lower grounds of Shatin.
What we lacked was a proper conceptual and catchy name for it, so we resorted to base puns and wordplay around Chinese characters and English words, ending up with strange hybrids of corpses, shit, rice, fans and intoxication on the move - something which we guessed sort of pulled together MPE's aesthetic incongruence.
Here comes issue number 0 of 辶尸米 SHITFAN, our little 8-page, full-color, 20 copies fanzine. Price is fixed at that hefty 5HKD coin in your wallet, or at "FREE" if you buy any of our record while stocks last.
And for the next numbers, we would love to have you being our author, editor or curator for one page, one section or one entire issue.
Our idea of content is quite wide: photos, essays, novels, reviews, drawings, critique, comics, manifestos, collages, hatespeech, scores, loveletters, poetry, whatnot.
