The 'Damp Research Facilities' haven’t been inventing many new life-saving gadgets this season, since they’ve been flat-out printing money. It’s fantastic! Want a new telly?

Issue Seven: Brighton 2009, edition size of fifty.



The 'Damp Research Facilities' have been terribly busy shredding their expenses claims for the last ten years. I mean who’d have thought the public would have gotten knocky about perfectly okay claims for moat-cleaning and second homes, when they’ve all busy thieving handfuls of biros from work. So what if a few deserving Damp Staff want a new telly? Who wouldn’t begrudge them some small comforts? What else? Well Damp Research has proved conclusively that money is vital for happiness and in the spirit of you can never be too happy...keep fiddling the claim forms.

Softback Zine printed in colour on cream, white and lime tinted papers, saddle-stitched.
A5 size containing 16 printed pages. Red and white pearl card cover with small holographic sticker.
Issue Eight: Brighton 2010, edition size of fifty.




In spite of being out-of-ideas the 'Damp Research Facilities' have filled sketchbooks with pointless drawings for your delectation. As usual the Damp Staff have been out and about eavesdropping on tedious mobile phone conversations, designing products for a better future and trying to get away with passing this off as Art - I mean...honestly! TIME FOR ACTION: What we REALLY need now are some more middle-managers to form a committee, to draw up an agenda, to propose a strategic plan that addresses concerns both real and implied of whoever it was who started this whole thing in the first place.
Pass the biscuits please...

Future Fantasteek! No.9



Softback Zine printed in colour on cream, yellow and white tinted papers, saddle-stitched.
A5 size containing 16 printed pages.
Red translucent cover with small gold 'get-out-of-jail-free card insert.
Issue Nine: Brighton 2010, edition size of fifty.




What’s happened recently then?.... 'The Damp Research Team' have studiously tackled the issues that we all think about - such as do you waste more time on Facebook or Twitter, and what’s the point of it all when your closest friends are only ‘virtual’ and can’t even buy you a beer and crisps?
In the current economic climate all the Damp Staff have been promptly sacked and the company has been sold to 'foreigners'. They’ve hired some child labour to do the work at a fraction of the price, which means it’s much better this time around since the kids are better at drawing.We’ve kept all our middle-managers though, since they are better at designing nice colourful forms in Excel. So, it seems the world is REALLY going-down-the-pan as we speak, but at least your hair will look pretty and the Botox will smooth over your anxious brow as you glance with alarm into oblivion.
Time for a cuppa-T love?

Who’d have thought it... ISSUE TEN, of this rambling nonsense. The Damp Research team have been trotting out this stuff for FIVE years now. At some point you might have thought someone would find something better to do...but apparently not.
Well, the walls of money have stuck to rich people again and University is now soooo expensive only the Queen can afford to send her eldest son, don’t even bother sending girls - they just need to be pretty these days, start saving up for a boob job and sod the degree... (unless it’s in cosmetic surgery)
Damp Research - thinking for you, because you’re watching X-Factor...

...HERE we are again, Future Fantasteek! issues numbers 1-10 are happily touring the globe with their sketchbooks.  BUT staff here at our research facility have decided to add fresh ideas to the ‘Recycling Fraud’ going on here... SO, two guest artists have been randomly selected by computer and were offered bugger-all in return for giving us pics. WHAT’S been going on everywhere else then? Chaos, disaster and political upheaval, everyone worrying about whether women wear too much or not enough, no one wants to eat cucumbers or beansprouts and no one is entirely content with the weather, or their newspaper... same ‘ol, same ‘ol...
