Devoted to punk rock, interviewing Swingin’ Utters, Descendents, A Mercy Union, and The Dreadfuls. Also the usual music reviews, rants about sellouts, etc.

Entropy Press #5 – Review

June 1, 1997

Those random people at Entropy Press have produced another Episode, random submissions based around a single word. This time, the word is “Salt.”

Crank – Review

June 1, 1997

Why is such a big deal gets made over low-brow scumpuppies like Larry Flynt when there are people out there with much more imaginative means of being offensive?

Beerzine – Review

June 1, 1997

Rough hewn comics, cut and paste layout, and tales of getting drunk and doing stuff that, when remembered, you’d probably wish you could’ve blacked out instead.

Life of the Party – Review

April 1, 1997

Some of her pages and panels are crammed full of lines, shapes, faces, images of motion, and beautiful black ink but they never appear cluttered.

Implosion – Review

April 1, 1997

From an insomniac and a $5 blowjob from somebody’s mother, to serial killing, to white trash piss Elvis’, to child molesters, to walking corpses as art.

Gab – Review

Gab is a weekly guide for the hip, “alternative lifestyle” crowd. It’s a ‘zine for finding out what’s hip and cool to do in Chicago if you’re gay.

It keeps you up on the latest dirt from the Dream Factory without shying away from saying what other movie journals don’t have the celluloid cojones to say.

The Pannus Index – Review

Northampton, MA’s Pannus Index is a glorious anomaly – an honest-to-peat lit’ry magazine in the style of The Paris Reviewer a low-budget Granta.

Lies – Review

Offbeat fiction, political commentary, and fake ads for redneck vampire flicks – Lies is sure to replace U.S. News and World Report as my source for news.

Ah, my dear Rev. Tin-ear! Once again, your abrasive sensibilities grace our eyes. This month, he and his crew of jaded misfits take a look at Christianity.

Magnet – #25 – Review

December 1, 1996

What makes Magnet stick is their chosen field of coverage, which honestly lives up to its tag line: “Real Music Alternatives.”

Fourball – #3 – Review

December 1, 1996

Points for being a bona-fide ‘zine (the type is tiny, the layout ugly, the resolution of photos poor, the “writing” I’m-so-cool-I-don’t-like-anything).

Flipside – #104 – Review

December 1, 1996

The grandpappy of all U.S. punkzines remains densely teeming with torrents of tiny text and a far wider frame of reference than most any other ‘zine.

Subversive Agenda – #4 – Review

November 1, 1996

Versatile, knowledgeable, and comfortable praising what needs to be praised, and slamming what needs to be slammed. Subversive Agenda doesn’t dick around.

November 1, 1996

Lisa (Suckdog) Carver’s Rollerderby is the ‘zine that Sassy wishes it were – the work of a feminist who still enjoys being a girl.
