Below are some recently posted reviews.

RSS Feed

ANARCHIST BICYCLE RALLY: CONFIDENTIAL MAD LIBS
$4, 5½” x 7”, offset, 62 pgs.
By Craven

It’s a collection of records of the police spying on Critical Mass in Portland obtained through the Freedom of Information Act going back as far as 1997.


WOMAN GOT ME DRINKING: PILTDOWNLAD #2
4” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 39 pgs.
By Craven

Get this and not something that sucks.


TNS RECORDS FANZINE #13
Free, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, 72 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

The layout doesn’t speak to me, smacking of crisp, uninventive computer design as it does, but I’ll forgive that given how much work it must be running a record label, radio station, and distro on top of putting out a zine.


THERE IS NO RIGHT WAY TO MEDITATE
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, hard stock cover, 32 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

As the opening page recommends, “Sometimes it’s okay if the only thing you did today was breathe.”


STOWAWAYS, THE #7
$1, 8 ½” x 11”, 20 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

For me, it was the badass fan letter from a prisoner in the back, brimming with humor and punk.


STOWAWAYS, THE #6
8 ½” x 11”, photocopied, 8 pgs.
By Craven

My favorite part is the show reviews, where he manages to talk about anything but the band that played, focusing, instead, on human interactions and hanging out that happens as a result.


STOWAWAYS, THE #5
Full-size, copied, 17 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

. I’d say it’s worth it if you want to feel all warm and fuzzy about DIY music.


SPIDDER #16
8 ½” x 5”, copied, 24 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

This zine rules and I have a crush on it.


SPARE CHANGE #22
$2, 8 ½” x 5½”, photocopied, 32 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

There’s also a conspiracy theory about Elvis, Danzig, and Jim Morrison being Highlanders (i.e., immortals).


SMOG CITY # 3
$5 U.S. ($6 Can./Mex.), 10” x 6”, photocopied and die-cut, 40-47 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

The general tone is noir, with overtones of Hitchcock.


SHORT, FAST AND LOUD #25
8 ¼” x 10”, photocopied, 55 pgs.
By Craven

Mostly reviews of hardcore records, but with some columns and interviews with Yacopsae and Suffering Mind.


SEVEN SEXUAL THINGS THAT EVERYONE FAILED TO MENTION
5” x 4” copied, 24 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

The writer shares insights about sex that she’s painstakingly learned during a life of sexual repression.


RADVOCATE, THE #5
$2, photocopied, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 44 pgs.
By CT Terry

High quality and homespun.


PROOF I EXIST #15
$3, 4” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 56 pgs.
By Craven

Talking about crushes in a zine is like putting drums in a bluegrass band or wearing a beret to a poetry reading—both of which suck for different reasons.


POSER
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 10 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

My patience for “difficult fiction” (Joyce, Pynchon, Proust) all hinges on that there better be a fuckin’ payoff somewhere in there or I’m callin’ bullshit. Thankfully, here there is.


PILT DOWNLOAD #3: JUNIOR CAREERS
$?, 8½” x 5½”, photocopied, 28 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

Kelly writes about his adventures selling candy door to door out of a dude’s van in his early teen years.


PENNY DREADFUL, THE #9, American Edition,
½ letter sized, photocopied, free
By Guest Contributor

Literary zine out of Cork, Ireland claiming to be “As American as borscht, vodka and communism.”


ONE-BREAD SANDWICH #1
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

Judging by Spam being included on the cover drawing of a food tray, I guessed this was from Hawaii, but I think it’s actually out of Texas.


ONE-BREAD SANDWICH #1
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, copied, 12 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

The whole thing often marks the creator as someone with an unflagging enthusiasm for DIY punk rock but without much practice putting out a zine. Which is fucking awesome!


NUMBER FOUR PRIVET DRIVE
$?, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, 28 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

After being incessantly compared to Harry Potter when he moves under the stairwell of a punk house, this guy sets out to read the whole series.


NO WAR BUT THE CLASS WAR
$3, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 21 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Definitely a great insight into anti-militarism of the past, this collection shows how little war and capitalism have changed over the past century.


MAXIMUM ROCK’N’ROLL #348
$4, full size, newsprint, 164 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

As always, MRR contains endlessly entertaining stories and reviews in the columns section.


GROWING THINGS: A GUIDE FOR BEGINNING GARDENERS
$3, ½ letter sized, photocopied, 40 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

This is a genuine effort to put together the one zine anybody should need to get started gardening.


FLUKE #10

By Steve Hart

One of the strengths of Fluke is an engaging interview with a band that I’ve never heard of.


EARTH FIRST!
$6.50, 2011/2012, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By Steve Hart

I enjoyed the article, “Wolf Wars.” I had a grindcore band in the early ‘90s called Gitcheegoomee. My bandmates often asked me what I was singing about and I replied, “Wolves.”
