The First – March 2009

‘It’s all happening!…It’s all happening!’ Polexia Aphrodisia’s (what a name?!) wailings at the top of the ramp in Almost Famous. What’s all happening? Anything you want! That’s the beauty of music – it soundtracks anything, makes anything possible, makes anything happen.

So that’s the title.

Take a love of music and a love of writing, the musical excitement drowning our new home cities of Leeds and London, mix them together, and tada, a zine is born! Not quite as easily as that, but like all zines, that has been the path of creation for It’s All Happening.

Constant battles over which L city is where its at when it comes to music has made us realise how lucky we are to be travelling between the two all the time, and experiencing the musical buzz in both the north and south of the country. Whether the north/south divide exists in all things melodic is not clear – we’re hoping good music knows no geographical boundaries, and we’re ready to explore!

Music is all about opinions and we want to share ours with you, but at the same time we’d love to hear your thoughts so please contact us whether you agree or disagree with what we have to say, have any ideas, or generally love a good natter about music.

Not ones to get all sentimental, we’d like to thank the various bands, venues and shops who have helped us pull together this first issue. We hope to be making musical things happen your way soon!!
