About Me

My photo
Online journal devoted to (un)popular culture's murkier regions. Began as Grim Humour magazine in 1983 and lasted eighteen editions until 1993. Took a break until 2000 when it was relaunched as Adverse Effect magazine (which continued with the old numbering system). Four editions published until 2005, then compromised into being available via the internet, where a barely maintained website exists. Grim Humour itself is presently slowly evolving into a book dedicated to various highlights and low points from the magazine, whilst two record labels, Fourth Dimension and Lumberton Trading Company, hover very closely like needy cousins.

New Home

As already noted at least a couple of times before, Adverse Effect continues via its new (and more appropriate) home at the new Fourth Dimension website. All of the previous posts, both from here and the now non-existent, FD/AE website, can be found there, as well as (so far) a couple of posts from the past month. Besides this, of course, news on Fourth Dimension's releases and a new (as yet unfinished) Shop dedicated to vinyl and CD releases from labels and artists traversing 'similar' spheres, can also be found there.

Please visit: www.fourth-dimension.net if interested.

As an aside to the last update, I want it to be known that this Adverse Effect blogspot will definitely cease during the next few months. Meanwhile, simply check in on its now being housed at the new Fourth Dimension Records website and, if so inclined, look out for other updates, news and pontifications on my personal blog, which you should see a link to on the page here.



Reviews: Number Six

As previously noted, Adverse Effect is now housed at the new Fourth Dimension Records website and, as such, the latest batch of reviews have just been posted there. In due course, and once AE has settled into its new home, I will cease its activities here.

Meantime, please visit the new site. Everything that has been posted here before is now there, and more posts will follow soon.

You can find it at: http://www.fourth-dimension.net/index.php/ae-blog

Otherwise, thank you for reading these posts and all the best for 2010.
