Glam, cock rock, bar-room blues, Americana, Sleaze, punk rock, goth rock, deathrock, rockabilly, psychobilly, horror punk, the odd bit of alt-country and folk punk, and above all glamourous, original and genre-defying rock'n'roll ;)
FILM - Each issue featured a dedicated Horror section, while other movies tying in with the genral rock'n'roll theme of the zine occasionally featured.
FASHION - Regular pages were dedicated to alternative fashion news, events and features and interviews with new designers.
ART - Focusing on, but by no means limited to, lowbrow / poster art. Bubblegum Slut also featured artists inspired by music and best known for their record sleeves, photographers, tattooists, and art-meets-music exhibitions and events.
BOOKS - Focusing on, though again not exclusively, band biography reviews and author interviews.
FILTH! - Issues included interviews with Suicide Girls, burlesque troupes, the founder of the London School of Striptease, a dominatrix, reviews of pornos and cocktails alongside the records, and an insight from the editor into working in a sex shop for 6 months.
PLUS clubs, fanzines, travel, caberet, competitions & more!

Bubblegum Slut was the UK's only fake-fur covered fanzine. Dealing in Glam, Sleaze, Punk, Goth, Deathrock, Rockabilly and other big-haired and pre-1990 musical phenomenons other publications won't touch for fear of getting their barge pole all sticky with hairspray B.S brought a little sleazy make-up caked trash into the lives of those who found it forced upon them at gigs, indie shops and bars all over London, Essex and beyond.
Usually sold with the promise 'Well even if you don't read it, you can stroke the fluffy cover' 'Slut proved for one reason or another enduringly popular and in 2010 celebrated a decade in print! Whatever the public think, some of the big press seem to have enjoyed actually reading 'Slut with the likes of Bizarre, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Big Cheese, Dodgem Logic, Kaleidoscope and Mick Mercer blessing it with favourable reviews, while Rock Sound magazine branded it "diverse, informed & well-written... a shining example to fanzines everywhere! - 9/10".
In 2004 the Emap publishing group named Bubblegum Slut as one of just 5 shortlisted entries in the music catagory of its first annual Fanzine Awards and invited the editors to the awards bash in London's trendy Old Street. They were rewarded with attempts to drink the free bar dry, steal chunks of the venue and the kind of behaviour that caused an Emap employee to be slapped by his girlfriend. More shockingly, they invited Bubblegum Slut back again in 2005, making it one of only two zines to be nominated two consecutive years. This time awards presenter and indie ponce Steve Lamacq was persauded to pay good money for a copy of our fluffy mag.
Other members of the small press have even conducted interviews with the destructive editorial forces behind Bubblegum Slut. You can read interviews with Miss Alison B in Long Gone Loser Magazine, Manilla Mag, Noisy Fanzine, Spider's Web zine and at Pure Rawk,
The 'Slut also released 3 budget-priced compilations of bands as dirty as itself, including the 4K Kerrang! rated 'An Hour With Bubblegum Slut', and as of Issue 27, includes a free sampler CD with each edition.
