What's this? In their words: "If you’ve never seen The End now’s your chance to find out about a unique chapter in British publishing history. Long before casual was ever really recognised as a youth cult, a group of Liverpudlians created a home-made fanzine capturing life on the streets of their city, the local music and political scenes, and not forgetting the terraces. It was very funny, very roughly laid out and very popular. Its greatest champion was John Peel who would regularly name check the magazine on his Radio One show and also invited the editors onto national television to discuss their cult fanzine."
So this is just another issue? INCORRECT. Nope, this is one volume with EVERY SINGLE ISSUE EVER within its affectionately-bounded pages. Sabotage Times and adidas have come together to help them finally produce the book, which includes every Ins and Outs list, every music interview, every letters page, every one of the classic End illustrations and interviews with Billy Bragg and The Clash amongst many others. In addition to all 20 issues, there're also new Ins & Outs, the memories of the three editors, and various other articles from contributors and admirers.
How much does it weigh? Glad you asked. The FHM office scales say it weighs 3lbs. But those scales have seen some rough times.
Prove it's funny: Okay. Random excerpt: a poem about Ron Atkinson.
Christmas present for football-loving Dad? Totally.
