Going, going...

Thanks to everyone who came to the launch of the 'zine a couple of weeks ago and to all those who have sent nice messages since - along with enough Felt memories, ephemera etc for a whole other fanzine. And, of course, to everyone who has written about it online too!

We've had an amazing response and we've been posting copies to all four corners of the world, to the extent that I got stomach cramps from licking stamps (yes, I've heard about that Seinfeld episode) and the huge pile that was blocking my hallway is now merely a doorstop.

In fact, we are down to our very last few copies, so we're only selling maximum two per Paypal account now to make sure that everyone who really needs one can still get it.

We are also planning another London event, as a kind of postscript - more soon...

Copies of Foxtrot Echo Lima Tango available now

We are pleased to announce that you can now purchase copies of Foxtrot Echo Lima Tango, a 160 page fanzine dedicated to all things Felt, via the Paypal button at the top of this blog page.

The 'zine costs £10 including postage within the UK, £12 for Europe and £13 for further afield.

Since there's only 500 copies, it might be a good idea to get a copy sooner rather than later. If you should want to have it, that is.

Reminder: London launch this Sunday!

In case you might have forgotten, lost your filofax, or thrown away that post-it note: the long promised launch of Foxtrot Echo Lima Tango takes place this Sunday at the Hangover Lounge at the Lexington in London's Kings Cross from 2pm!

There will be DJ's including Felt's very own Phil King and (we hope) several other former band members mingling with the crowd on either side of the decks. We will be endeavouring to get them to sign our copies...

The 'zine itself, meanwhile, will be available for the first time and at a special launch price.

Rain is forecast.

We look forward to seeing you there...

It really exists

We have it in our hands! And we have only spotted 5 typos so far.

We can now exclusively reveal that, over its 160 pages, Foxtrot Echo Lima Tango features contributions from (deep breath): Gary Ainge, Paul Becker, JC Brouchard, Thomas Chatterton, Ben Clancy, Martin Davies, Anh Do & Matt Fishbeck, Dickon Edwards, Lora Findlay, Alistair Fitchett, Tim Gane, Chris Heath, Julian Hyde, Rui Kalda, Paul Kelly, Phil King, Ben Knight, Sybille Lacroix, Lucy McKenzie, Alasdair MacLean, Alan Michael, John Mohan, Kevin Pearce, Scott Portnoy, Brian David Stevens, Marco Thomas and Emily Wardill.

Thanks to everyone for your patience, it has been a long road to get here... You will finally be able to buy copies via the blog from Monday, it will cost £10 (including UK postage) - but only of course if you have not already purchased your copy at the Hangover Lounge London launch on Sunday!

Good timing

This sunday, June 6th, will see the relaunch of Rui's Felt site. If we can get internet at the Hangover Lounge zine launch, we will be clicking 'refresh' with baited breath!

And in case it was starting to seem completely mythical, more on the zine itself tomorrow...
