​Here in NYC things are a little different.

There were a bunch of girls doing a zine in 1980. One of them Gabby, came
to work for me at Better Badges.
She later played guitar for Luscious Jackson. I don
t have a contact but I see her around occasionally. ​

​Then there was Nancy Breslow, who did Short Newz​. She also came to London
and worked at BB, became our east coast rep.

More recently, Wendy, Guillotine. http://www.guillotinezine.com/about-us/

But I'm still drawing a blank on UK efforts, beyond Gee and International
Anthem - not a fanzine per se.
