Okay, I'm not sure if anyone remembers me, but I found something recently and knew I would be remiss if I didn't immediately share it with y'all. I guess it's possible everyone has seen it already this, but I wanted to share it just in case, because oh my christ, it is the holy goddamn grail of Blixa pictures.

I'll post something soon. I PROMISE. Eh, before I do, perhaps there's something the lovely members of this community would like to see? A certain pairing, a theme, something like that. I was thinking of doing an AU, an assload of 'chapters' or 'parts' or whatever, anything we'd like to see happen with that? I'm stuck with writer's block and a little push would help, ha.

Google is telling me that Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds once did a cover of the song "Gently Johnny," and yet nowhere can I find mention of where this recording exists or when it was ever performed. Does anyone know??

I hope this post is all right? I read the rules and it wasn't, uh, completely ruled out, so... I'm not trying to make trouble, I promise. I'm going to call it meta/discussion except really it's just about me looking for people to talk to.

Anyway. I'm not really new to this fandom at all, but I am a complete newbie when it comes to contributions. To put it bluntly, I want to write raunchy slash fic for this community, damn it all, but I work best at all if I've got other people to bounce ideas off of. Do you want to be that person? Let's be friends then, 'k? I primarily ship Nick/Blixa, I like everything from crack to angst, I'm jonesin' for this fandom to live - so, come on, let's discuss gay sex.

The magazines were newspaper-sized, which is significantly larger than my scanner can fit at once, but I tried to get the best parts of the full-page pictures. Some of them are also slightly askew. Sorry.

Here are scans of Nick in NME 1984, 1988, and 1986 and Blixa in Sounds 1987:Collapse )

I was browsing through this vintage magazine shop in Soho this afternoon, saw their giant section of original music magazines from 1980-now, and ended up sitting on their floor for hours going through every single stack of them. Here's what I found (that pertains to this community, that is): six different issues with Nick on the cover, one with The Birthday Party (although the cover picture was a close-up of just Nick), one with the Immaculate Consumptives (which, I would think, is pretty rare), one with Blixa, and one that said "Collapsing New Buildings" with a picture of Mark Chung by himself on the cover (which I almost didn't recognize at first as being Neubauten because of the name translation).

Anyway, I bought three with Nick on the cover (NME '84, '88, and '96) and the one with Blixa (Sounds '87). Unfortunately, I wasn't able to flip through the ones I didn't buy because they were in sealed plastic covers, but the ones I did buy have some great interviews I'd never read and some pictures I'd never seen before. I can't scan them now because I'm in my dorm and don't have a scanner, but when I go home for reading week in early November I'll scan them (if anyone's interested).  I suppose that makes this sort of a useless post, but I was really excited about getting these. Also, I could probably be persuaded to buy a couple more, especially the Birthday Party and Immaculate Consumptives issues. I hid them at the bottom of the stack that was lowest to the ground just in case (as if other people would be clamoring to buy them).
