About Deviation Street


Welcome to Deviation Street .  We are ramshackle out of kilter , Blog and Magazine . A hybrid  mix of words and images that covers a range of  creative pathways.  We are Deviation Street.   Our  aim is to  provide a space for a creative community of readers, writers, visual artists and musicians .

Originally Deviation Street  began as a Fanzine:  set up in 1977 by three spring chickens Kevin Anderson the  knowledgeable and driven one (who came up with the idea ) , John Evans  clear headed and all round stable person and myself, the other one  . We ran the fanzine with youthful passion, going to gigs  taking photographs , getting interviews , writing stuff and like many other spirited enterprises of the time it ran for only a short while before we each moved along our own pathways.

Fast forward or click to 2017 and the notion of relaunching  Deviation Street  as an online venture starts to crop up in conversation and so I tentatively set up a blog and the feedback from contributors and readers is good .  So we put together Issue 1  a 62 pg content packed Maga/zine  with interviews .A few months later we bring out a full colour  issue 2  and  now we only have a few copies left of those .

We are looking forward to bringing  out issue 3  in the spring of 2019 .

The blog is free and we are always on the lookout for contributors and if you have editing and layout skills and want to get involved you can contact us via deviationstreet101@gmail.com

Thanks for reading this ,enjoy the articles
