The Rockinfreakapotamus magazines are bigger than my scanner and I’ve been battling with them to try and get them online for ages now- new technique! Have photographed the pages so they can be seen in their entirety and then scanned pages/sections for close ups where relevant (lots of pages are contacts by fan club members e.g. photos and swapping addresses for ‘pen friends’ for those of us old enough to remember that system involving letters and stamps in the world before social media!).

The six magazines I have managed to obtain are all listed here.  If anyone can help out with the issues I’m missing (either to scan, photograph or sell), I’m really interested as I’d love to get them all online in recognition of the hard work that Blackie Dammett put into the fan club.

Thank you very much to R!ch~Plenge and Melanie Owens who have scanned and photographed some of their Rockinfreakapotamus memorabilia for us! We really appreciate them sharing.

**If you have anything from Blackie’s fan club days that you would like to share with us, we’d love to hear from you!**

  1. I’ll have to check, but I had received a letter years ago, telling me something about being the first people in the fan club, and as a result got some special sticker and some other stuff if I remember right. I should have a cassette also of the band talking about the club. And I have a rockinfreakapotamus varsity jacket…….man that was 20 some years ago.

  2. I have quite a few iof The fan club magazines. They were great times , I wish they still made them. As well as s welcome letter from blackie dammett
