Newsflash: It is with great sadness that ELP can inform it's readership of the untimely demise of PUSH magazine. Push, the magazine, was of course the inspiration behind the two ELP anthlogies - PUSH 1 & 2, which are still available to purchase from this website. Head Honcho of PUSH - Joe England - has announced that issue 23 of the magazine will be the last ever. Established in the spring of 2013, PUSH was a runaway success from the very outset, and was soon to become the inspiration for several other DIY punk zines - in what has since been labelled -the UK Zine renaissance. PUSH was a major showcase for cutting-edge working-class fiction that was somehow overlooked by the mainstream. It was also the catalyst for the founding of East London Press in 2014, a press that was set up primarily to provide an outlet for the publication of working-class fiction. And yet it is not all doom and gloom. ELP is committed to the publication of yet another PUSH anthology - PUSH 3 , which will be published in 2017. So PUSH is dead - long live PUSH!
