BIGOT! (198-)

Bigot! (Swansea, Wales : The editor, [198-]) [Heisler] P4143


This is the only known print copy of this underground fanzine, presumed to be from a Swansea University student. The first article, an anti-capitalist exploration of the cause of the sinking of the Herald of Free Enterprise passenger ferry, dates it tentatively to 1987. The remaining content is a mixture of sexual politics, suspicion of the establishment, vegetarian recipes and anti-nuclear propaganda. While arguably naïve, it is an intriguing document which illustrates with great immediacy the last generation of such publications, which would today be far more likely to be produced as blogs and online content.
