Face Plant zine issue 3

9 Apr

Alongside plenty of other local and national zines in the 80’s and 90’s Face Plant zine provided some great info and good quality pictures courtesy of Skinboy and Leslie Lee Jenkins. Thanks to Mark who put the zine together at the time and has since scanned it all and very kindly sent it and let me post it here. Click on the images for a larger version. Another great Swansea zine alongside Mutant, Rat Bite, The Mun and the Slip Scandal all of which will appear on here in some form sooner or later. Thanks to all the creative zinesters over the years a good slice of Swansea’s skate history has been preserved. More zines please!! Especially in the days of blogs, websites, facebook and Twitter it would be great to have something tangible and hand made to look at.
