HELLO! we are back from holiday and finland! funnily enough while looking for something i needed for the trip, i found the distro stock. so the distro is open again and well, i’ll get the pending orders posted this week, promise. any problems i will let you know in the next few days.

this whole travelling malarky means that we’ve missed HALF OF INTERNATIONAL ZINE MONTH! darn! obviously we have missed zine distro appreciation day (day 3) but the lovely emma who writes hedgehog in the fog wrote a little lovenote about us (& marching stars) on their blog. thank you. we appreciate it ♥ ♥ ♥ anyway, to celebrate internation zine month there will be 14% off all orders when you use the discount code/coupon zinemonth14!IZMLIST2014LORES

we’re all moved into our new home, however we are not fully unpacked (cos we have no shelves or wardrobe) and i have no idea which box has all the distro stock. we are going to finland on friday to attend tukru’s brother’s wedding and do stuff. so no orders will be processed until mid july at the earliest. once we’re back, we’re gonna get some shelves and then unpack. but until that has been do, NO ORDERS WILL BE PROCESSED.

unfortunately i haven’t been able to figure out a way to close the shop with this new system without losing all the info it has taken me approx forever to put in.

see you later kids. hope you have an excellent summer. we’ll be back soon enough!

hey kids, the distro will be temporarily closed until we’ve moved into our new house cos i’ve just gone and packed up the distro stock! you can still place an order if you wish, but they won’t be posted until we’re moved in and i’ve unpacked that box.

in the meantime if you have a hankering for some zines, i went though my personal zine collection the other week and i’ve got some (5) grab bags for sale. £4.50 inc P&P to UK each. each bag has 20+ zines (about 700g in weight) various subjects and genres/styles. you can purchase one buy sending us the £4.50 as a personal payment via paypal to (which i prefer cos fees) or buy using the button below.

ALL THE GRAB BAGS ARE GONE! (for now) and have been posted today. if you missed out, do not fret. i’ll probably have another few once i’ve finished my current to read pile..

hurrah, excellent zine festing coming up next weekend in yorkshire, we’ll be at both sheffield AND leeds with our magical zine wares. we’ve also got some new zines coming from across the pond, hopefully they will arrive before i hop the megabus on thursday (making the most of it since i dont work thursdays or fridays these days! and all i got to see of sheffield last year was venues & transport.. didn’t even get a chance to buy a bottle of hendo’s to bring down south..)

hopefully i’ll see in yorkshire? i’ve been to both sheffield and leeds zine fests with the distro before and both were excellent and i’m so glad they’ve decided to band together and make a big weekend of it!

it’s almost time for our favourite time of year = QUEER ZINE FEST LONDON! it’s hitting town on sunday 1st december. more information at the facebook event. it’s gonna be epic. so many awesome zinesters around and so many of them have / are going to have new zines out then! so we shall be coming back with lots of new zine stock, so if you can’t make it, you’ll be able to find some of the best bits here soon after 😉


AND we’ve got some seriously awesome zines already in. like MORE new issues of telegram (does maranda ever stop writing? either way, please don’t stop!) zine comeback’s from L in the form of japanese whispers (a travel zine about.. you guessed it, japan!) and a new perzine called unblissfully.

actually, it is our birthday today! vampire sushi distro has been open for business for exactly four years today! so we are having a wee sale to celebrate (since we failed at doing a comp zine, again. whoops)


so yes, it is 20% off all orders with code HAPPY4THBIRTHDAY. valid until sunday 3rd november. we’ve also got some new zines in stock! but for now, we are off to the sofa to watch the shining. (tukru isn’t 100% sure anymore whether she has actually seen the whole thing or just seen lots of bits on clip shows. if she has, it was like 15 years ago so it’s excusable that she’s forgotten..)

ps. if you’re in kent (or can be arsed to hop a train / drive down/up) you should get your butt over to canterbury on saturday, cos tukru’s band SEAN BEAN DEATH SCENE is playing at West Track Studios (Roper Road, CT2 7EX) with shopping, family outing & daskinsey4. (facebook event) by the looks of it, it is their last gig til next year.

NEW IN STOCK: poor lass #1, poor lass #2, sonorus #1.
