    R*E*P*E*A*T
    Fighting the Power Since 1994
    includes download of tracks on the CD, if you're very nice we might even make you a CD version...

    150 pages, many in full colour, with lots of live Manics Pix and all sorts of shots, ephemera and junk from the underground Cambridge Music Scene 1994 - 2011

    Initially set up as cut and paste homage to the early acerbic genius of the Manic Street Preachers, R*E*P*E*A*T Fanzine has grown from a messy, noisy, irreverent, childish, rebellious baby into a messy, noisy, irreverent, childish, rebellious adult. And who'd want it any other way?

    Described by the press as an underground 'indie Tution', R*E*P*E*A*T has expanded from its humble fanzine beginnings to encompass a record label, gigs promotions and an enormous website, as well as, more recently, a DIY recording studio.

    This book seeks to preserve some of R*E*P*E*A*T's earliest glories from the oblivion which is the usual unjustified destination of so much beautifully creative ephemera. It features scans of original gluey fanzine pages (several created by some of the kids its editor has taught), gig posters, photos (some never seen before), CD and record sleeves, rants and reviews, all from before the website was created and made everything a lot more accessible. So while more recent pieces and pictures are included in here, no apologies are made for concentrating on the early days.

    And no apologies are made for the lack of a proper ending. R*E*P*E*A*T is an ongoing interactive musical, political and cultural struggle of love and petrol, and this book is not intended as an exit...

    This book was compiled by Rosey R*E*P*E*A*T and designed by Phil Rose Esq

    Thanks to all the contributors, past, present and future – you make R*E*P*E*A*T what it is (a contradictory mess of highlighter and pritt stick, zeroes and ones) - apologies if we've still not credited you!

about

A Compilation of some of the best tracks released by R*E*P*E*A*T between our first split single in 1996 and 2010. The CD was free with initial copies of Book, MBRR135

More info on Book here www.repeatfanzine.co.uk/Rants/book%20press.htm

Freeboy – Patrick's Got Me Down (1996)
Our first ever release, on a split 7' single with hand stamped labels free with R*E*P*E*A*T #6, played by Radio 1 and reviewed nationally, making this record label lark seem far too easy.


The Saffs – Pamela Anderson (1999)
The anthem for a generation of 1990s Cambridge Glitter Punks, the song that established R*E*P*E*A*T in the minds of the music loving kids of Cambridge.


Alcopop - Last of the Secret Agents (1999)
Formed in a music therapy session, Alcopop had it all - Huge choruses, Melody Maker interviews, Radio One plays, a Steve Lamacq single of the week, rock star behaviour and wonky keyboards, as encapsulated in this Bond Theme that never was.


Foxy Ramone vs the Cottenham Kids – I'm A Believer (2001)
Featuring Rosey R*E*P*E*A*T, this version (which appeared on the rarely equalled 'Histon' compilation) is better than the one on Shrek. Allegedly.


Pala featuring Makif Aka Quillis – Cat-Like Creatures (2000)
Treading a previously untapped line between arena-conquering bombast and lo-fi poise, Pala added Makif Aka Quillis' inspirational rap to their sublime indie to make this track unique for its time.

Miss Black America – Don't Speak My Mind (Original 2001 single version)
Long term allies MBA instantly understood what R*E*P*E*A*T was all about; they got Radio One sessions, NME rave reviews, John Peel Festive 50 entries (entirely without cheating!) and signed to a bigger label. Their Adrenaline Junkie Class A Mentalist ep was our first recording to sell out before it was released, a feat yet to be R*E*P*E*A*Ted. This track (later re-recorded for the Integrity Records album) appeared on the very rare Dental Records split single with the similarly fantastic Antihero.


The Hammers -When You Go Away (2001)
This track got the band a slot playing live on Blue Peter in front of 6 million people, still R*E*P*E*A*T's only terrestrial TV appearance. It may embarrass them a bit now but when they recorded it, aged 11, they played themselves to sleep with it.


The Virgin Suicides – Elizabeth Royal (2002 single version)
The teen punk band that had the Cambridge Scenesters seething, - still big sellers on I tunes today, this track appeared on the Republican Red 'Fuck the Jubilee' single.


The Dawn Parade – Good Luck Olivia (live John Peel session from Maida Vale, 2003)
Part Richey Manic, part Bruce Springsteen, this incredible recording (from the 'Best Of' compilation) shows why the Dawn Parade were always a band close to (the hole in) our hearts.


Attila The Stockbroker's Barnstormer – Baghdad Ska (2004)
Attila has been a long term inspiration and friend of R*E*P*E*A*T, so we were delighted to be able to release a this anti war track by him on lovely white vinyl, shared with the equally outspoken Bomb Factory.


Cosycosy – Drive Drive (2004)
Fantastic girl-boy shouty punk-pop released on a lovely translucent purple double sided split vinyl, shared with the equally fantastic Chris T-T.


Autons – Snakes (2006)
Epitomises the R*E*P*E*A*T ethos – if we like it we will release it. We did both.


The Hope – Confessions of a Whore (2008)
The Hope walked it like they talked it a lean, mean, sleazy onslaught of noise, energy, melody, anger and attitude taking aim at apathy and acquiescence. No wonder R*E*P*E*A*T was fond of misquoting Orwell - “if there's any hope, it lies with The Hope”.


Johnny Panic – The Rebel (2008)
Our first ever vinyl picture disc shows why Johnny Panic deserve to be the biggest band in the world.


The Resistance – Stevie Nicks (2008)
A trashy piece of cut'n'paste pop genius. Just like R*E*P*E*A*T. Pressing plant problems means this was never properly released, so here it is now.


Feedback – Bad Habit (2010)
Rehearsed and recorded in the R*E*P*E*A*T's Big Badger Music Shack, Feedback were a young band taught by Rosey from Junior School age.
