It’s been far too long since the last issue of Brompton Rhodes – nearly ten months in fact! In that time I have been working on certain other projects, admittedly, but that’s still no excuse for my piss-poor tardiness. The delays have been compounded by lack of access to a decent camera – oh, my life for a lovely DSLR. Sadly I’m far too penny for that kind of shit, so I’ve resorted to more budget means.
Still, who gives a shit, eh? The issue is back on track, alongside a snazzy new website redesign to take us into the year twenty-thirteen – unlucky for some, but not for Brompton Rhodes!

Or do they…?
Many, many more to go…
