THE JUICE Fanzine #02 - FINALLY!

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:

JR #05-R: NUNO SOUSA - UM DELICADO SENTIDO DE EQUILÍBRIO / 2nd Edition!

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.

ORDER here.

THE JUICE Fanzine now available in Record Stores in London!

LONDON, LISTEN UP!
Taking advantage of the great weather me and Jonno took the Fanzine to the streets and we're really proud to announce that we now have it available in two carefully selected Record Stores:

All Ages Records in Camden

Sister Ray in Soho

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.

JUICY LIMITED EDITION CLOTHING

Instead of making a traditional "lookbook video", we opted for something that is closer to a short (tiny) film. The long-term objective is to create a series of videos with a continuous storyline that will serve to showcase the new items from the clothing line and add more depth to the actions & characters introduced on this first video.

More info on the items here.

THE JUICE Fanzine - Issue #01 RELEASE PARTY


From day one, Juicy has been about pushing boundaries

Although we're a record label at heart, and we come from a punk hardcore background that we still keep very alive in everything we do, we can't seem to be happy fitting a mould.

As an individual who never had any special talents for arts, I also created this project to push myself out of my comfort zone and to express my creativity through a medium that was more about ideas and making them a reality with the help of friends, and less about abstract concepts and artistic values.


That's how The Juice was born, and it was really an amazing feeling to see all the hard work recognized by the people that showed up for the Release Party.

It was a very special afternoon in the company of old friends, new friends, and people that just wanted to check us out and see what we had to offer.


The smiles, the nice words, the people we met and the fact that we managed to gather people from different backgrounds, all hanging out, having fun and sharing ideas, are enough to consider this event a success.





Thank you for your interest, your support, your love. Thank you to the friends who helped out in anything that was needed, to the ones that cam from out of town, to the ones that were there in spirit. This is just the start.
