PAPERCUTS: Announcing Shout Louder’s new book,celebrating punk rock community

We’re proud to announce the pre-order of our paperback zine PAPERCUTS!

Purchase PAPERCUTS from our online shop

PAPERCUTS is a special collaboration between people from all different areas of the punk rock community: bands, fans and all things in between. We’re fortunate to be united through music, and we’ve attempted to condense some of that special bond into these pages.

Whether it’s finding love, overcoming loss, leaving home or finding a tribe, once you’re part of the DIY community it’s hard to see life any other way. Celebrate and commemorate that feeling with this lovely bumper print zine.

The zine includes written contributions from 30 authors: amusing anecdotes, fond memories, engaging stories, imaginative poems and many relatable tales. It also features photography from three of Manchester’s finest: Jim Taylor, Josh Sumner (Cold Front Photography) and Tim Bevington (Hold My Pint).

This is a one-off Shout Louder print publication, with 80+ pages of stories and photographs. Enjoy this high-quality paperback print as memory of many of the good (and bad!) times we’ve shared in the punk rock community.
