"There's just so much going on it needs to be documented," explains Tommy Warmsley, editor and creator of Kettering's new music fanzine, Siren.
Recent years has seen Northampton's music scene boom, but it's not the only town with an improved musical culture.
Where Northampton leads, Kettering closely follows and now it's boasting a huge scene of home-grown bands, DJs, venues and club nights of its own.
So with Northampton showcasing a proud history of magazines and fanzines, it's high-time Kettering had something of its own to rally behind.

Six months down and four issues along, things are going well for Siren. Each issue is beginning to scratch away at documenting the latest and greatest local musical heroes.
Sukie, The Beat Connection, Stuart Bruce and others have so far featured in its pages, but there's plenty more to get around to.
The fanzine is run on a DIY ethic of minimal budget and printed on favours. In traditional fanzine style, It's all about the love and less about making money.
And while it's the brainchild of one person, it's far from a one-man-band. Writers and photographers are encouraged to get involved.
In fact, Siren has already gathered together a bunch of willing and budding people to help produce the goods.
