Are there any Pink Floyd fanzines?
The Azimuth Coordinator
A new fanzine will hit the world starting September 1999. This magazine, called The Azimuth Coordinator, promises to be a A4 sized full color cover magazine, giving the *usual* stuff (interviews, reprints of old articles, ROIO and concert reviews, the latest news, a collectors network and more. Basically the same kind of items as Brain Damage used to have.
We’ve seen the sample issue, and if the next issues will maintain the quality of the sample issue, this is a magazine well worth subscribing to. For more information check out http://www.crazy-diamond.nl or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

There are also two out-of-production fanzines which can still be obtained. The chief early Syd Barrett fanzine was “Terrapin.” A boxed set of all the “Terrapin” issues has recently been made available.

The main Pink Floyd fanzine was “Brain Damage.” However, Brain Damage seems to be defunct these days. It has been almost two years since the last issue. Orders placed with Brain Damage are handled with huge delays, and e-mails and other correspondence remain unanswered. The last sign of life from Brain Damage was an almost content-free flyer send out to US- subscribers only, basically stating that Brain Damage was not defunct.
This flyer was sent out in December 1998. Since then I have tried to contact Brain Damage through e-mail and snail mail, and have never heard anything back from them.
If you want to reach Brain Damage, their address is still

Do not expect any response from them, since you won’t be getting any, whether you include an SASE or not.
It’s sad to see a magazine die this way.
