La Bouche Zine
La Bouche is an alternative news and culture publication. We have produced ten successful, highly original issues, which have included interviews with the likes of John Pilger, Peter Tatchell, Shazia Mirza, Pete Doherty, John Cooper Clark and The Fall. We featured in LOVE Magazine as one of ‘top ten favourite ever zines’, as well as on the BBC today programme, as part of a broadcast on literary sub-culture. We have also found ourselves in Thames and Hudson’s book ‘Fanzines’ by Teal Triggs and listed as the ICA’s first ever ‘zine of the month.
Anti-poverty charity War on Want have run a regular feature for the publication.
Amongst the themes we have covered in previous issues, we have looked at the politics of surveillance, TV, elections and sex. This is often done from an artistic, alternative perspective, but we also provide reportage on current, yet timeless news stories, the latter of which we will cross-post here on Byline.
