Cold Lips 05 Letter from the Editor

Cold Lips 05 was a short run print edition put together over a couple of nights, to bring together content which had been sifted through over the previous year. Only 50 copies were made, and were largely given away at gigs for the Vagrant Lovers, with Danielle De Picciotto, in Berlin, and a poetry night Kirsty Allison did in Prague. There was an intention to publish more, do a re-design, but Covid happened, distribution chains got decimated, we got lockdowned in different adventures, including selling out of that wonderful Martyn Goodacre edition – our first photobook.

Cold Lips 05 is all classic content, and we’re excited to share it with you for free here over the course of the next weeks. Thanks to all contributors.

First up, the cover. Living a dream, after a lifetime of putting other people in magazines – ya, it was Merch, baby – so here’s Kirsty – also responsible for the terrible design. Followed by some poetry/lyrics.

Lyrics from the forthcoming Vagrant Lovers album
