Notting Hill sound systems documented in photo fanzine

Independent photobook and fanzine publisher Cafe Royal Books's newest release is a black and white zine, Notting Hill Sound Systems. The images were taken by photographer Brian David Stevens as part of a 2004 project, and now are published as a 36 page A5 photo zine.

Stevens has also shot images of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Christian Vogel, Billy Childish and others, as well as a number of other documentary projects. The fanzine is published in an edition of 150, but is looking to publish a second edition. More information plus images from the book here, and on Stevens's site here.
