Red eye Magazine, What happened??

I was up in the loft the other day and found a pile of old red eye magazines. I just wondered what happened to these guys? Why dont they still publish?

I've been re-reading them over the past few days and ive gotta say i love em! The travel-logs rock and i can relate a lot more now, the words and pic's bring back some fond memory's.

Anyone else got an old stash of red eye's??

Here's an article that educated me never to smoke soap again... making soapbar in Yorkshire.


They did advertise red eye press publishers books but i think they were the red eye express, and based in Lincolnshire.

I've got one with a Gambia and Senegal trip in it, is that the one you're talking about? Its also got a captain butane article about making bho, and a breeder Steve article. Sound familiar?

wow! what a real blast from the past! i felt i had to add some imput to this thread, yes red eye magazine was one if not my favourite mags during my youth , first started buying them from tower records, and when that closed down i looked up the phone number inside the mag this was where i met the editor nik aka zorro, so every 3/4 months i would visit him, and have a nice session with either my grass or his excellent hash and i would buy a box of magazines to redistribute out to shops, mates etc, then on one occaision, he was smoking cheese , i was already paying a high price when we could for cheese and had already started to grow plants in my parents cellar, so naturally i asked for a cut, next time i visited he had 3 cuts , the rest shall we say is history, the last time i remember seeing zorro was around 2007 just after i had won the cannabis cup, he was saying at the time he was considering moving/getting out of the old ratrace and going to go travel, but also i knew he had a few other personal problems as well, i really miss the guy, we have so much respect and love for zorro so if anybody knows where we can get hold of him or his whereabouts please let us know, but since then we have heard a few rumours ie he had a heart attack, hes in a morrocan prison, he sold red eye to weed world, hes in a commune in the south of france! so would the real zorro please stand up! peace uk posse! big b

Yeah great stories and pic's without the feeling your reading a sales pitch.

I was looking through the cheese issue and it describes just what you said Bigb. Ill post a pic of the article in a bit if nobody has any objections?

Checked the PDF today on brethrens computer,, Gambia and Senegal and Butane run edition... the reports go for a few pages in those old magazines.. real old-school traveller info and nice photos ganja and the culture

Edit : if you search the tinter-web I guess that some editions might still be available on pdf format..

I have some RED EYE Mags 1 of zorro's adventures is CHITRAL AND THE LOST KINGDOM OF KAFIRISTAN,,, sat with a gang of hash traders and he is unsatisfied with the quality so tells his guide BOB who asks for a better batch, and a runner comes in a hour later with 3 parcels 1 is a 25 gram slab for a suitcase and the other was a 250g brick for boats of the same hash he asks about the other and he is given a goat skin of 4/5 kgs of 2nd grade pollen (He looks happy in the photos) splifs go round and more samples come out he later talks about the ancient way of mixing hash and opium he had 20 years back he said it had a redness when torn and is still produced for the local market..

Man I miss red eye what a mag! Makes weed world and high times look like a joke! Such a shame the only ganja mag that isn't just ads and ads disguised as articles had to go. I heard they were growing and got busted atleast that is what a couple of head shop workers have told me when I asked about it no longer being around.

Since then I've been trying to get hold of every issue. Think i'm missing about 4 of the 20 odd they released even got hold of issue #1

peace

Those mags are very collectible, just like high times.
Put them up on ebay and they will sell fast for $10+ each.
