Even though the production of fanzines precedes the emergence of punk, the truth is that it was with punk that the fanzines become relevant as a space for freedom of thought and creation, as well as an alternative to the conventional media. Since the 1970s, the fanzines’ universe has expanded thematically and stylistically, and also in its territorial coverage and in the communicational supports used. In this article we adopt an approach that goes beyond the Anglo-Saxon reality and intend to look at fanzines as ‘communities’ founded around a cultural object, which have produced texts, photos and other materials regarding the Portuguese punk scene from the late 1970s until now. From a large set of fanzines we will analyse the ways of production, design and typography, the main themes, distribution channels, bands, the scenes and lifestyles covered in them. In this study, we consider fanzines to be an alternative media that, from late modernity, is able to reveal the punk movement and the DIY ethos associated with it. We seek to understand fanzines’ relevance to the Portuguese punk scene context, both past and present, and we also identify some patterns of evolution and change.

The impact, influence, and legacy of the Sex Pistols have inspired a considerable number of works, with those of Jon Savage being perhaps the most paradigmatic. However, these studies are generally centered on Anglo perceptions of the Sex Pistols and of punk more broadly. We believe that it is important to understand the Sex Pistols cultural and economic impact globally, and thus to realize the influence of English or Anglo-Saxon culture in non-English-speaking countries through the lens of popular music.

In this article, our main aims are as follows: to understand the current and previous representation of the Sex Pistols in Portugal; to evaluate the group’s legacy in Portuguese society and its punk scene, its influence on the formation of bands and their consideration of questions relating to authenticity and market; to define the role of the Sex Pistols in the dissemination of the DIY ethic and concept among punks in Portugal; and to examine the importance of the Sex Pistols in the ever unfinished construction of what represents the mainstream and the underground in music.

Rise Up: a scientific interface

‘Rise Up’ is a moment where, during the lunch time, the participants in the KISMIF! International Conference and Summer School can present their works in a more relaxed and informal way. So, if you have recently edited a book, a magazine or a fanzine, if you released a record, a film, if you are building up a home-made instrument, etc., this might be the moment for you to present it in Portugal and discuss it with the fellow colleagues who are joining the Conference and the Summer School.

PARTY ‘This is Radio KISMIF’
DJs: Ricardo Salazar and Joana Tê

There are vynils on the walls, old radios on shelves, and a lot of people dancing. The radio has anchored in the Porto downtown area with highly danceable emissions. We would call it an indie super-bar if it did not run away from the indie brand. We would call it that because it is, after all, the fusion between two alternative music reference bars in Porto – Radio Bar (for a while Radio Sushi Bar), which broadcast for four years in Miragaia an unpredictable playlist, in a wavelength between rock, pop and electronica, but always “on the other side”, out of mainstream – closed since 2009; and Mercedes (as it is known, but offically named “O Meu Mercedes é Maior que o Teu”, My Mercedes is Bigger Than Yours) a nearly mythical place which for 15 years has led us through the ways of the less commercial music, in a corner of the Ribeira close to the D.Luís I bridge. There is but one certainty: on the dancefloor, the music is ecletic, pop-rock, blues jazz and soul together.

PARTY: 16 July 2015, 23h00 – 04h00

The menu will have vegan options and will include an assortment of starters, one main course, desserts, drinks, coffee. Dinner will be accompanied by the DJ Set ‘Love Is A Strange Dude’ of DJ Peter Schmeichael.

The DJ Set will be totally improvised – as usual – but yes, something between Einsturzend Neubauten and INXS.
