Dig issue 62 is out now and has Lino’s writeup about the 2hip uk trip from september. I missed the deadline by 2hrs apparently so my text’ll end up on the dig site at somepoint. We were at Cantelowes the other day and we were talking about whether they’d actually have printed it. I was’nt so sure and said “but what about the bit where i talk about that skatepark as though its an underage girl and we take her up the pooper”, only to turn round and see a family with a young girl of about 8 standing right behind me. The skaters opened the gate for us Peado’s to leave.
Nang is also out now with Jenkins’s sexy packaging graphics, through 4 down, a new trailer is up on Defgrip . Its worth it just for the last clip in the end titles. I wanna know what happened to all the pictures of us as kids going on the sleeve.
