Featured Zine Reviews from Issue #85

By Staff

This zine left me asking myself, “When is a better time for punk
than now in the midst of all this bullshit?"




ATARAXIA #9
$?, 4 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

A short chapbook compiled of four poems by various authors accompanied by doodly illustrations.


BIBLE OF CAVS FANDOM, THE
free, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 28pgs.
By Billups Allen

This zine covers fandom of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team. The zine is very cut up and photocopied-looking—i.e. very punk. 


CERTAIN PEOPLE I DON’T KNOW #2 and #5
$1, 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Well-drawn portraits of people the author encounters on public transportation.


CRETINS OF DISTORTION #5 / KILL YR PARENTS GARDEN #9
$?, 7” x 8”, copied, 6 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

From the cold, insipid heart of America comes the explosively degenerate split fanzine you’ve been waiting for! Cretins of Distortion literally melts your brain with thirty-one retrospective reviews of Midwest punk bands.


EXTREME NOISE: 20 YEARS! #1
$7.50 ppd., 7 ¾” x 10 ½”, offset, 52 pgs.
By Matt Average

This zine is a oral history of the store from past and present volunteers, as well as long-time customers covering the beginning, dealing with landlords, financial struggles, meetings, strange customers, and all else that one encounters and faces in such a setting.


GOOD LORD #0
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Collages. The cover is blue. It was probably fun to make.


HAVE YOU HAD SEX WITH THIS PERSON
, $2, 6 ½” x 10”, 12 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

We don’t often tell more than a few close friends about these experiences, but two seasoned zinesters decided to publish a zine laying it all out for you. Have You Had Sex with This Person is a collaborative zine from zinesters Red Velvet and How Are Your Insides?


HOI POLLOI SKAZINE
$5, 5” x 8 ½”, copied, 113 pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Every ska record that has ever been reviewed might be in this anthology. At least anything up until the winter of 2001.


NADA: THE DADA MAGAZINE ABOUT NOTHING
$?, 8 ½” x 11”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

The title says it all. It’s a fun and sarcastic comedy lampooning North Korea’s dictator, our moronic former commander in chief, and his first-hand minions. 


NO PLACE FOR A VACATION
$3, 5” x 8 ½”, copied, 78pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

The author, Andru Okun, was a New Orleans resident down on his luck who decided to go on Birthright because it literally took him out of the situation he was living in.


ORGAN GRINDER #4
$7, 8 ½” x 11”, 26 pgs.
By Ashley

Organ Grinder is, hands down, one of the most impressive zines in my collection. Full of quizzes, brain teasers, and the odd joke and comic or two, the zine is entertaining, sarcastic, and really fucking clever.


PARANOIZE #35
$3 ppd. U.S., $4 ppd. International, or trade, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

This is your guide to what is going on punk-wise in New Orleans. Also covers metal, sludge, doom, hardcore, and stoner rock.


RASASVADA #12
$1, 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Hmmm. Yeah. A small, quick collection of visuals here. Material ranges from a simple ink drawing of Bobby Hill dancing with Ladybird (that’s a King of the Hill reference, folks) to a sketch of a shoe, to a few remarkably good portraits and collages, and a few questionable abstract pieces.


SOMETHING FOR NOTHING #70
2 stamps or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 40 pgs.
By Matt Average

Do you like the Subhumans (UK)? Culture Shock? Citizen Fish? Then you might want to check this out. The entire issue is dedicated to covering the releases of those bands.


THROAT CULTURE #15
$2, 5” x 8 ½”, copied, 26pgs.
By Simon Sotelo

Throat Culture is a fun review zine out of Chico, CA that contains tape, vinyl, and zine reviews mixed with madlibs, a couple diary entries about broken tape decks, and fixing your bike.


TRAVEL ON #5
5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Through letters, personal stories, and lists, David Solomon chronicles his time spent living and working in the wilderness.


TREPANATION: ELECTIVE SURGERY YOU NEED LIKE A HOLE IN THE HEAD
$4, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Sean Arenas

Emi Gennis's edutainment approach has become her trademark, while her thick black lines pleasantly resemble that of Gilbert Hernandez sans the voluptuous ladies. The theme this time around is trepanation.


WELCOME TO THE CULTURAL ÆTHER #11
$1, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 44 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

I like that it is just a big collage of random information and art. The columns are mostly about science, medicine, and history.


WELCOME TO THE CULTURAL ÆTHER #9
$1 ppd., 8½” x 5½”, 24 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Another visually stunning ish. Collages with text are very precisely done. The texts are longer form this time and have to do with religion, mostly.


TURNTABLE TOUR: OCTOBER 2014
5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

This zine is to accompany this fall’s Turntable Tour, a four-city travelling visual art show featuring work by punk stalwarts Tim Kerr, Chris Shary, Kepi Ghoulie, and more.


STAYING IN
8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Craven Rock

A young New Jersey punk writes about his experiences going to shows and getting out and living life.


SPIDDER #17
8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Craven Rock

Within a nice homey design of cut ‘n’ paste and comic illustration are some personal stories and writing from an old school (as in ‘80s old school) skater.


RABBIT, RABBIT, RABBIT #3
7” x 8 ½”, copied, 20 pgs.
By Craven Rock

This is an awesome old school-style zine with crappy drawings, legibly handwritten sections, and typed-up and glued-around photocopier art, clip art, and what have you.


PURE ENTERTAINMENT #1
$10, 7½” x 5”, 72 pgs.
By Bryan Static

A wildly varying collection of comics. Quite a few of them remind me of older comic masters.
