Utah Saints – ‘The Machine’ fanzine

After The KLF split up I suppose I was looking for a new band to obsess over. I thought the first few Utah Saints singles were great, so I decided to do a fanzine about them.

As it turned out, they were recording their second album with one of the producers responsible for making The KLF’s records so brilliant. In turn the second Utah Saints album was extremely brilliant, but it never came out. Well done everyone.

Anyway one great thing that did come out of doing this fanzine was that after interviewing him for the second issue, I got to know a journalist and broadcaster called Jeremy J Beadle, who’d written a book about sampling called Will Pop Eat Itself?. Jeremy and I would meet up every few months, whenever I happened to be in London. He gave me tips about writing, and encouraged me in all the right ways.
