The zine was started,and is entirely written by Kevin Kavangh. The first issue was published in July 2006,and sold at punk gigs in Wexford town throughout August of the same year,and after. The second issue was written and sold in October of the same year,although to a much smaller extent. A second run of Blast Off 2 has yet to be completed.
Blast Off is a perzine,and explores the author's feelings,politics,interests,and occurences that have taken place involving the author. A third zine will be sold in October 2007,along with a re-print of both earlier issues.
