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 email@example.com
