Last time we did a release party, for Juice's #01, we felt like something was missing: live music.
So this time around we asked our friends at No Borders DIY to help us change things a little bit and add a bit of loudness, in punk fashion, cause despite being all minimal and polished looking, Juicy is still about DIY and we love us some good ol' stage dives.
At the party we'll have THE JUICE Fanzine #02 available alongside the re-edition of Nuno's book and the new arrivals on the Distro, and we'll be doing one time promotional deals too.
Taking the stage, our talented friends:
Last time they played Lisbon (years ago!) a riot was about to start. Show the Northern boys some love.
One of the most prolific punk bands in Portugal. Skate or die.
Old school hardcore with a pinch of sports and animal rights. Say what?
Venue will be FANTASMA at Cais do Sodré, Lisboa. Find it here. ALSO, SHOW WILL START ON TIME. We'll be done by 19:00 the latest, so don't be lazy otherwise you risk missing the first bands.
You can order the Fanzine with no shipping costs and then pick it up at the party by ordering with the option to "Collect @ Release Party" here.
Fanzines are somewhat personal projects, that’s what I always loved about them.
As a result, my life got deeply involved in this second issue of the The JUICE.
Last year I took a break from the trials and tribulations of London and decided to go on a six months trip that took me from Iceland to India. I didn’t plan and research every step of the way, so many times decisions made on the spot would completely reshape my future. It was all depending on me and the people I met along the way.
Some of these people found their way into this new fanzine. I saw in them the passion for music, for creative writing, for film…for the same things that first motivated me to create this project. The JUICE, at the end of the day, is about collaboration. It’s about bonding different people around an idea and making it happen.
It’s still a fanzine about music, arts, travels and everything in between. Emphasising on Do It Yourself, underground culture and open minded thinking, with this Issue #02 we take you on a journey around a variety of projects, people and events heart-warmingly curated to highlight different and sometimes lesser known parts of the world.
THE JUICE Fanzine #02 contains:

It's a 8.5"x11" (21.6cm x 27.9cm) magazine, 78 pages, with coloured cover and black & white interior.
This issue is completely in English.
As for the video above, many thanks to our very talented friend Furia ACK for accepting the challenge of interpreting the Fanzine's cover over a wall in London and delivering such an amazing piece. Check out his work here.

In 2010, Nuno took a chance. He moved to India for some months and decided to make the best of it. Along the way, deprived from many things he once took for granted, he reflected on his own life, on his memories, on what really had a meaning.
In 2011, a book came to life. It collected those reflections and memories in an enclosing final chapter to Nuno’s Indian adventure, in which became Juicy’s first venture into the world of publishing.
“Um Delicado Sentido de Equilíbrio” sold out in less than a month, becoming our best selling release in four years of existence as a label. Truth be told, we didn’t see it coming, and surely the first press of 100 copies was miscalculated…a lot of people were left without a book, some of them have been asking for a repress ever since.
In 2014, a piece of history is reborn. Three years after the original book, we’re finally excited to announce the 2nd Edition of “Um Delicado Sentido de Equilíbrio”.
But this is not a repress. With a brand new cover, completely redesigned interior – amongst other things, the book is now over 50 pages longer and printed on cream paper - and a new preface by the author, this is a fresh creation that provides a completely different reading experience.

They will run out quick, and they may not be in the most obvious spot, so be quick and don't be afraid to ask for them at the counter. We will re-stock during this week and the next one in both stores, but once they're gone don't expect more copies apart from the stock we have on our own to sell from the website.
I'd also like to thank all the people that made this 1st issue a success. Everyone that came out to the Release Party, everyone that bought it over the last 2 months, everyone that helped to promote and/or dropped in a word of appreciation. It means the world to us that people actually enjoyed and wanted to support something so simple and yet so meaningful.
Next issue will come out in December. Mark your calendars.
