I see things like this, and realise that I miss The Face magazine. Not just seeing the magazine itself, but an advert for it in another magazine
Well, I knew I miss it already, but it’s almost 10 fucking years since it closed!
I guess it’s still going in a way, in that there are tonnes of amazing mgaazines now, and all the people who worked for the face are working elsewhere. But there is something about The Face that always made it seem like ‘the one’.
I am lucky enought to have every issue of course. I remember buying the last issue not knowjng it was the last. JOn and I were driving around the lakes in my big chunkly defender and I hopped up on the kerb next to a newsagents for some coke or something and there it was. Gisele.
Spent ages months afterwards, thinking ‘where has the fucking face gone’
In the very middle of one of the pages, there is some tiny text saying that its gonna be the last one. But you’d never see it unless you knew. And if you were looking that close, you’d also see a picture of aiden shaw naked, that no-one really knows is there!
I still blame Jason Donovan!
