How better to advertise an Analog D.I.Y fest than with a zine? Will be handed out during the day and is in various places in Brisbane and The Sunshine Coast.
Slapped together by Ben and Bart from The Time Machine and Adam from Freaks Like Us. Adam has dug up copies of his 'Obscene' punk zine he made in the early 90's and has made 'Obscene: The Re-issues'. Read articles when Livid was still kicking and BDO only cost $55.

The first zine of the institute

The Return of Unmedicated Happiness (ROUH) issue one is out now! The first official zine released by the Sunshine Coast Zine Institute, Rouh is a collaboration between long time zinster Adam Obscene and relative new comers, but no less talented, DedBeat and Scutch.

The photocopied b/w A5 zine consists of 44 pages of Lino prints, sketches, doodles, stencils and spray paint splatter.

The whole thing is a chaotic mash up of the contributors styles, with many of the pages layered and pasted and copied and molested many times before finally being left alone to settle together in the analogue zine realm.

The return of Unmedicated happiness is available for the princely some of $4.50 at the Time Machine 101 Currie St Nambour and Freaks Like Us, shop 1/80 Howard St. Nambour or you can message the institute Facebook page

The Time Machine LIVES

The Time Machine LIVES

The Time Machine is a place full of wondrous things. We sell vinyl records, comics/books/magazines/ZINES, posters/prints, toys, collectables, vintage clothing, antiques/nostalgia and heaps more.

Founded by Shane Sullivan, a man known throughout Nambour for his kindness and generosity. A giver to the community, and helpful to the less fortunate. He even used to save his cigarette butts for a homeless man. Shane has now sadly passed on, but The Time Machine will continue.

Daniel Stuth, Barton Worthington and Benjamin Paskins are now the new proud owners of The Time Machine. They will continue as is, but have BIG plans for the place, some including:

1. More new and second-hand records. Bigger variety of genres. If we don't have it instore, ask and we'll try to get it in. Also you can go visit Lee at Backbeat Records around the corner (Old Ambulance Station Art Centre - 80 Howard St)
2. We're selling our art instore, ask how you can too.
3. More vintage clothes.
4. Musical instruments and equipment...did you know one of the rooms downstairs used to be a recording studio?

Go on  in and say hello. There is a place where you can listen to music and
walk around and find a whole bunch of crazy, cool things.
