Shining Life / Chiller than Most / Up Against the Wall Hardcore Zines - How to order PLEASE READ


Zines used to be the lifeblood of the hardcore punk community but are now a dying artform. However, QCHQ started as a zine and we are still all about them, and want to support those who do them. Therefore, we have a selection of Shining Life Zines from DC and Chiller than Most Zines from Hungary.

Due to variable Paypal fees and how all of these are different weights we are only shipping these within the UK and upon request everywhere else. You can also buy them face to face at shows - they are cheaper if you buy them this way also. AND email us qualitycontrolhq@gmail.com to have them added to your parcel, or if you want to buy a bunch, or you want us to pass these onto a friend who's visiting London - Again they will be cheaper through this method. Prices and selection below:
