Purple Revolver’s underground culture zine Über has been featured in a profile interview with respected Fanzine authority Teal Triggs on her website Zine Weekly.

Zine Weekly blog focusses on the art of zine making and zinesters. Teal puts Editors Amber Tan and Andy Johnson on the spot about the future of Über and the tension between running a commercial creative press agency and creating a zine with a DIY ethos.

Über is a cut and paste zine in the 90s style and has featured interviews with Mark Ronson, Is Tropical, The RZA, Quentin Tarantino, Howard Marks and Craig Charles amongst others.

The zine has introduced the story of lost Superhero Digital Jesus and his struggle to discover his identity within the middle pages of the past two issues.

The zine also explores themes and theories and their effect on movements in culture including the recent 18 year cycle business and culture theory – featured in the 1993 Future Throwback Issue.
