Future Fantasteek! No.10 - Royal Wedding Souvenir

Royal Wedding Souvenir Issue

Softback Zine printed in colour on cream paper, saddle-stitched.
A5 size containing 16 printed pages. Silver metallic cover.
Issue Ten: Brighton 2011, edition size of fifty.

Who’d have thought it... ISSUE TEN, of this rambling nonsense.
The Damp Research team have been trotting out this stuff for FIVE years now.
At some point you might have thought someone would find something better to do
...but apparently not. Well, the walls of money have stuck to rich people again and University is now soooo expensive only the Queen can afford to send her eldest son, don’t even bother sending girls - they just need to be pretty these days, start saving up for a boob job and sod the degree...
(unless it’s in cosmetic surgery)
Damp Research - thinking for you, because you’re watching X-Factor...
