Blackpool Rox

The original Blackpool Rox (which was subsequently published as just Rox) fanzine, was an UK DIY punk-zine running from 1977 until 1985.

It was created and produced by local boy John Robb who now runs the Louder than War website.

Having produced 2 copies of our own zine (Eat The Rich) we contacted John in 2000 with the idea of resurrecting Blackpool Rox to support the local Blackpool scene.

The third incarnation (Blackpool Rox II) ran for 10 issues up until 2015 covering a mixture of music, football and politics all still very much from the DIY standpoint.

We intend to post some articles and reviews from these issues in the news and history sections.
