Smile (Fanzine)

Smile Issue 1

Your chance to become a certified avant garde artist and a plethora of mind-distorting verse.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985


Smile Issue 2

Gen. Pos. ultimatum proclaiming worthy ideals, like the banning of American TV, the draining of the English Channel for Dover-Calais bike races and Stewart Home becoming President of the Western World. Trillions of poems and words of wisdom.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985


Smile Issue 3

Very interesting 'zine, this one. Nicely produced and fun. The 'zine, I'm reliably informed, is the official organ of the Neoist Network, an international cell structure of conspirators against the existing cultural elite. Yes sirree Bob! Monty Cantain seems to be the main architect behind the movement to change civilisation as we know it. Poetry is included amongst the political intrigue.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 1, January 1985


Smile Issue 4 (Plagiarised Issue)

Great Monty Cantain cut-out, which, I feel, could become a growth industry. Emil The Bull profile. Smile competition, Bread data appeal. Plagiarism at its best and worth buying for the back page meaning of life alone.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985


Smile Issue 5

Articles on Neoism, The Generation Positive and all that jazz. Monty Cantain is the omnipotent power lying in wait. Poetry abounds in this issue.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 1, January 1985


Smile Issue 6

Neoism network expounding on things such as free postal, transport and telephone services. Also, how you can become the most famous person in the world, but at the same time no more famous than anybody else. Notable poems include "Moving East", "Game", "Albert Embankment", "Sandwiches" and "Divisions".

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985


Smile Issue 7

Mega-sized and sepia tinted - like issue one. Epic essays - "Blood, Bread and Beauty" and "Stewart Home" - in which the Neoist philosophy shines like the proverbial beacon. Also Neoist Artefacts and poetry. Correspondence between Neoist members and officials and addresses of notables. If you want to see how the Gen. Pos legend begins check out the first two issues, which are both 40p (incl. P&P).

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, No. 2, Summer 1985
