Butterfly is dead, long live e-Butterfly
Always a bit of a shame when paper zines bite the dust but the economic reality of it is significant. Web zines cost only time. Trifling things like photocopying and stamps not required, of course.
As such I direct you now to read it online at www.livejournal.com/users/crushzine. It shouldn't disappoint you, particularly if you have a love of underground indie-pop and the like.
Of course, there may well come a time when VP ceases to exist outside of the world wide web, indeed the number of copies produced has come down out of necessity and practicality and instead of dropping them in record shops and gigs, I am trying to build a subscriber base, and there have a been a few respondents already. I am not delusional or greedy, just a handful of regular readers is enough to keep me going, and so thanks to those who have sent stamps for the next however many issues.
Also record label people should know that to save my stamp costs, I will only be distributing paper copies to the 'industry' mailing list every three issues. Most seem fine with the e-mailing web updates thing though and if you want to keep up to date with additions to the website, get an RSS feed going from this blog to automatically see updates.
