Time Out

Cold Lips began as the magazine founded by Kirsty Allison at her Sylvia Plath Fan Club nights which explored poetry and lyric (with readers including Ray Gange, Dave Barbarossa, Lisa Moorish, Gail Porter, Nina Antonia, Murray Lachlan Young, Kelli Ali, CWNN, Gil and many virgin names that have gone on to rule the scene).
Four limited editions have sold out, featuring Doug Hart, Dr John Cooper Clarke, Billy Childish, New River Press, Judy Nylon, Sue Webster, and many more. Art directors include Tomato, Jason McGlade and currently Personality Crisis.
Cold Lips recently published their first book, Dark Entries by Richard Cabut (formerly Richard North on NME) with photographs by Millie Radakovic.
“London’s most notorious book”.
And an extended zine on Marianne Faithfull by Kris Needs who first interviewed her in 1979.
“The best ever interview ever on Marianne” Judy Nylon
