Does anyone have old Pulp People newsletters?

They look interesting, but they were before my time. I'd love to give them a read. Could anyone here provide me with a way to do that?

I got a load of the earlier ones off ebay three or four years back as I only became a member near the end. They do pop up there from time to time.

Come on! Alex was great. It was her sense of humour and personal touch that made the Pulp newsletters so unique. Give me that over a more airbrushed, professional approach any day.

They're quite bizarre to look back on. The editor, called Alex seems to have spent a lot of time crassly abusing the musical tastes of the kids who'd spent the money to join. It just wasn't funny after a while.



That sounds like something I could get behind. And the Ebay search begins... and nothing. I'm willing to bet these newsletters are fucking rare!

I think what would be great is if anyone owns any of these newsletters, they could scan them into their computers, save them as PDFs and upload them to the Pulp wiki for everyone to read. I think there are many people who would appreciate that!

Experimentally, I have reproduced an early Pulp People newsletter here.

It's issue number 5 from February 1993, which was just one folded A4 sheet written by Mark Webber. This probably isn't very interesting compared to the more substantial newsletters put together by Alex later on.

I'm a bit uncertain whether I should put up later newsletters in a similar way. I'm sure people would be interested in reading them and putting them on the wiki means it is possible to search the text which could be useful. However, I wonder whether I might upset people by reproducing them without permission. For one thing, they contain a lot of reviews, letters etc. from fanclub members who may not appreciate things appearing on the web. Particularly embarrassing things they wrote as teenagers maybe 10+ years ago.

I really doubt anyone would put up a fuss. Anyways, I'd really love it if you put them up. If anything do it for me! biggrin

I had a crossword & a concert review I wrote printed in a couple of later Pulp People news letters.
I'm not fussed if they get out, tho' obviously I can't speak for any other contributors.

I have recently added some additional material from Pulp People Newsletters here, here and here.

I will probably add a few more bits that I think look interesting soon. But I am not going to reproduce whole newsletters because for one thing I've realised it would take far too long to do - in addition to the concerns I mentioned above. It is a wiki though, so other people are welcome to contribute stuff if they wish.

^^^Cool stuff! I've been wondering if this was a good idea as well, and I don't see how it would matter, because you can't even get these things anymore. No one else is supplying them and I don't think the people that used to run the fan club would be angred by seeing their past works brought back to life for fans that never had a chance to see them. If you want to stay on the safe side, that is your choice, but thanks for what you have posted so far.

-Alec

I'm confused, are you showing off your Pulp people fire paper collection that's about as impressive as my first piss in the morning or are you about to furnish everyone with some unseen, super rare bit of literature??
Just wondered..

I wasn't being rude..
Curious to fathom the point of your post..
What is the point of your post?
Similarly, the spice demo post, a pic of a cartoon cassette tape?
Explain please the point of your post, what for? Who for?

If you have all pulp newsletters than it's great, what's the point to say about your morning piss ?
why you were trigered by this post ? or are you just trolling.
This topic is for pulp newsletters, as far as i can see. Right ? What's wrong with this post ? I don't get it

Enough of this!

Just in case you didn't know already, most of the Pulp People newsletters have been scanned/transcribed and are on PulpWiki:

Will did so much for us Pulp trainspotters on Pulpwiki (which we know Webber and Cocker have both used as a resource for their own work). Hope he's keeping well.
