AVOW
#11, $2, copied, 28 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

It’s got the type of stories that you would expect from a perzine by a punk guy in his (probably) mid-to-late twenties. He tells stories about difficult parts of his childhood, friends who were destroyed by their punk rock lifestyle, fucking up with women, odd encounters on the street and in bars, fights, and so on.


AMERICA?
#10, $1, 4¼ x 5½, copied, 16 pgs.
By Josh

Not only is the writing is really deep in a non-drum circle kind of way, the writer realizes and acknowledges his own imperfections. It’s always great to read stuff that’s self-questioning rather than self-important.


COMPLETE CONTROL
#11, $2, 7 x 8 ½, xeroxed, 28 pgs.
By greg

A nice “tour journal” zine from the depths of a midwestern punk band’s (Operation: Cliff Clavin) 1997 tour of punk rock America.




COMIXVILLE
#8, 50 cent (just like the rapper), 5½ x 4¼
By Josh

If you’re looking for some cool comic books that probably won’t be made into crappy movies any time soon but don’t know where to begin, Comixville is the way to go.


CHINMUSIC
#6, $4, 8½ x 11, 52 pp., glossy cover, two nicely-spaced staples
By Rev. Norb

Less interview and more article-oriented than i recall the last issue being: interviews include (but are not limited to) the Weirdos, Rubber City Rebels, and Marlins pitcher Tim Spooneybarger; the Murderer’s Row of columnists includes (but also is not limited to) Mike “Zisk” Faloon, Tim “Dagger” Hinely, and Ben “FIND A TV” Weasel.


BLACK VELVET
#37, $6, 8 ½ x 11 ¾, glossy, stapled, 40 pgs.
By greg

With thirty-seven issues under their belt, Black Velvet head mistress Shari Black Velvet (natch!) covers a wide range of punk and metal that spans the years.


BIG TAKEOVER
#53, $4.95, 320 pgs.
By Speedway Randy

Aging punk rocker meets the new indie parade, where some of those same idols are anyway.


BARRACUDA
#18, $3.50, 8½ x 11, 48 pgs.
By Josh

I don’t want to sound like I’m blowing smoke up publisher Jeff Fox’s ass, but Barracuda’s science is tight.


AVOW
#17, $2, 5 ½ x 8 ½, copied, 28 pgs.
By Josh

It’s a bunch of short stories about the author’s daily life; it’s kind of like a personal zine, only Avow isn’t crappy like Ration or something.


AD INFINITUM
#8, free, 44 pgs.
By Speedway Randy

While I am probably going to stick with Noam Chomsky and Multinational Monitor, it’s good to see what people in your backyard are saying about politics.


ZISK #18
$2, 8½ x 6¾, Xeroxed, 22 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

Mike Faloon and Steve Reynolds of Brewster, New York, have been running off Zisks roughly twice a season for nine years now.


ZISK #18
$2, 7” x 8.5”, photocopied, 24 pgs.
By CT Terry

The guys who make Zisk promise “No sentimental Field of Dreams crap,” and bill their zine as “The Baseball Magazine for People Who Hate Baseball Magazines.”


XEROGRAPHY DEBT, #25
$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 63 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

Now published by Microcosm, Xerography Debt continues to chug along as one of only a tiny handful of print-based review zines still serving the zine community.


WHAT MANNER OF BEAST
$10, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 40 pgs
By Sean Stewart

I made the mistake of flipping to the back of this first (old habit) and finding the poem titled “Charles Bukowski is Dead.”


SUGAR NEEDLE #34
$2 or “good trades in zines or candy”, 8 ½” x 3 ½”, photocopied, 16 pgs.
By Maddy

A ridiculously specific topic that you really can’t find anywhere else. Yay!


SPECIOUS SPECIES #3
$5, 8½” x 5½”, offset, 136 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Some folks actually came across as mild dipshits, but interesting dipshits


RIPPING THRASH #23
$?, 6” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

A lot of punk and political info packed tight here.


PUBLICK OCCURANCES #12
$2 or trade, quarter-size, copied and screened, 14 pgs.
By Billups Allen

#12 is an all heavy metal-themed issue, and for fans of the genre, it’s hard to put down.


WELCOME TO FLAVOR COUNTRY #18
$1, 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, photocopied, 22 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Along with just listening to the song and going right to the next, he sat down and wrote a short anecdote about the song he just listened to.


TRAINWRECK #6
$1-2 or trade, 5” x 6”, photocopied, 20 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

The sixth issue of Trainwreck is comprised of writings that were originally intended as lyrics to songs for the author’s band to record but got too drawn out, so he wrote them into stories in a zine.


MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #315
$4 U.S. and Canada, newsprint, 118 pgs.
By Juan Espinosa

Aside from the columns by the usual suspects, there are interviews with bands Punch, Blank Dogs, The Black And Whites, Insomnio, Etacarinae, Skin Like Iron, and Come On.


GIVE ME BACK #5
$1.50, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By CT Terry

Columns discuss classism and sexual harassment, latent conservatism in Hüsker Dü lyrics, punk politics in a university setting, and the importance of a good night’s sleep.


GET WELL
$3 or trade, 5” x 7”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Chris has been around the block a few times and has many stories to share—both happy and sad—but he’s also got some reviews in here and a piece on Phil Ochs’ greatest hits.


GADGIE #20
5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 32 pgs.
By CT Terry

I’ll take personality over information in a zine any day


MAXIMUM ROCK ‘N’ ROLL #311
8 ½” x 11”, $4, 118 pgs.
By The Lord Kveldulfr

All of the standard fare is here, such as record and zine reviews, columns, band interviews, etc., but the topical focus of this issue is quite interesting: “Print media is dead,” which, of course, is meant to be taken ironically.
