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.


ETIQUETTE
$? or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 75 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

If you think you need help in the etiquette department, read it for yourself and see how it suits you.


DIY OR DON’T WE #1
$3 ppd. US $4 ppd. Canada and Mexico, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Here we have thirty-nine pages screaming of cuteness; regular people like me or you discussing community and togetherness through memories of firsts or about the little groups they are in and how you can make a difference.


DIY OR DON’T WE #1
$3 ppd. US $4 ppd. Canada and Mexico, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

The feel-good stories inside can make even the grumpiest feel a little smug and secure for even a moment.




BONUSCUPPED
#2, ?/trade, 8¼” x 5¾”, printed, 36 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

Besides the travel pieces, most of it was cheeky, radical, and readable. And it has an interview with Todd Taylor editor and publisher of Razorcake.




BYKES AND BRIDGES
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

In what might have been another anarchic, politically leftist zine, the author has instead taken some songs he has written, placed them on a cassette tape, and then included this zine which gives the thoughts behind the songs and includes the lyrics as well.


DRUNKEN MASTER
#11, $4, 8 ½” x 11”, color cover, offset, 61 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Instead of an anachronistic exercise, Drunken Master embodies why punks took to zines in the first place. Its sole contributor, Kiyoshi, openly embraces all the little things that haven’t been replaced by the innerweb: cross-page spreads, the absolute dynamite of black, black ink on non-flickering white pages, the flow of an interview over eight pages without having to use a mouse to scroll down.


BONUSCUPPED
#1, 50p (no price in dollars listed), 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

For a first issue, this is pretty good. Major contents cover music (interview with Thomas Barnett from Strike Anywhere), politics (article on Czech president, and a suggested tongue-in-cheek speech for Noam Chomsky), cycling (travelogue from southwest Britain), and reviews (live and recorded music, zines).


BAD DATE ZINE, THE
#2, ?, 8½ x 5½, printed, 27 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

The Bad Date Zine could be considered a bitchfest first and foremost, actually. The difference being this one is mostly well written, funny, and with a diversity of voices, all talking about—what else?—shitty dates: lies about herpes, narcissists, and overly personal daddy-issue reveals.


ANY BEANS NECESSARY
1, $2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

Inside this spray-painted cover is a zine dedicated to the Vancouver (WA) Burrito Project (VBP), which buys ingredients from local stores to make vegan burritos for the homeless in and around Vancouver (I’m guessing that means Portland, too?)


ABORT!
#21, $2 ppd. or trade, free to prisoners, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 42 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

Subtitled “Bedtime Stories,” this issue is all horror fiction. Jonathan has a pretty good command of the English language; however, he needs to work on pacing his storytelling.


ZISK
#18, $2, 7” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 24 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Zisk is that smart, funny friend who can’t help themselves in sharing what they’re so geeked up about. That enthusiasm is infectious.


XO
#5, $1, 3½” x 2”, printed, 44pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

Little dealer and dealer friend get a brother killed through bad art, or confusing plot, or accidental car hood face smash?


WORMS
#4, $1, 3½” x 2”, printed, 39 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

From what I could tell, some girl has been abducted by powerful conspirators who want to make her life really shitty.


TNS
#5, free, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 22 pgs.
By Rene Navarro

This is a really cool zine from Manchester.


SQUID PRO QUO
#1, $2, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 14 pgs.
By Sean Koepenick

Basic but well put together zine by Jason of The Kobanes.


SIC BOI #3
postage, 8½” x 11”, Xeroxed, 18 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

So, first things first: a jailzine…


SELF-AWARE
#2, $?, 8 ½” x 11”, photocopied
By Will Kwiatkowski

I’d also like to mention that this guy’s (now-defunct) band, Obstruction, is very good.


PSIONIC PLASTIC JOY
$2, 5 ½’’ x 8 ½’’, photocopied, 30 pgs.
By Craven

Since it’s in a zine, it’s not miserably dry like that kind of stuff usually is.


PERPETRATION NATION
#7, 5 ½’’ x 8 ½’’, photocopied, 22 pgs.
By Craven

A medley zine of some interviews with bands.
