The People’s Post

It’s 2020. We’re officially living in the future and this, I guess, is a journey further into
Alice’s wonderland.

In the last 3 years the question I’ve been asked the most is “what is Io key?” – It’s a pretty
valid tbh especially in a world where you can be anything these days. I’ve tried answering it before – those articles you can find dotted around this site , but I thought seeing as we’re stepping things up (finally) I’ll give you an insight into what goes on in my mind.

I’ve only ever wanted to be a part of something important, you know? I think we all have
that feeling somewhere inside us. I mean the idea is pretty much shoved down our throats since birth – TV programme protagonists and their heroic stories, a priest leading his congregation, presidents leading countries, and war… you get the idea – we all want to be special.

The first time I ever really found that (the special thing) was through this extended friendship circle that we all now share, as part of Bournemouth’s independent alternative “scene”, if you do want to call it something. Nearly 4 years into this and a lot of you have turned into family – some have even been around since before that… the WGBS days! Remember that bike shop in Lansdowne where Tooth & Dagger is now? lol, what I’m trying to say is that I’m v v grateful to be able to contribute to it all 🙂

And that’s why you’re reading this – the story continues.

Welcome to The People’s Post – technically issue 2. Issue 1 being the copy most of you signed at our 48 hour radio broadcast for Hope for Food in 2017. What a time that was.

We’re stepping things up for 2020 and finally bringing you the low down on what’s cool around this little seaside town via this zine. Digital copies are available from Issuu.

We’ll be running this quarterly so be sure to grab future copies from your local shop, barber, cafe, watering hole, whatever. as often as possible, especially given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19.

I hope you enjoy and can I please thank all the contributors – fucking love you guys!

Now, has anyone seen my proper adult job?
