Posted by Matthew Moyer on March 8, 2012

Razorcake. Vol. 58

To prep for Mark Sultan’s (aka BBQ) imminent show in St. Aug, you won’t go wrong with Razorcake’s lengthy interview that takes in all parts of the garage rock titan’s anti-career. Features on Pil and Nervous Gender make this issue a win!

Find Razorcake. Vol. 58 at your library

(Micro) Zine Of The Week: In Every Town

Posted by Matthew Moyer on February 27, 2012

In Every Town:
An All-Ages Munsic Manualfesto

More polished than a zine, this is less a manifesto and more a step-by-step handbook to running a noncommercial music venue where you live. Thought provoking and practical, In Every Town is the successor to MRR’s Book Your Own F**king Life.

(Micro) Zine Of The Week: Blues Real Bad

Posted by Matthew Moyer on February 18, 2012

Blues Real Bad
by Kevin Singles

Kevin Singles crafts a gorgeougly rendered, barely-fictionalized take on the myth of Robert Johnson. Weaving together narratives and cinematic jumpcuts, we see the lengths a guitar player will go to really play the blues. And what it costs.

(Micro) Zine Of The Week: A Very Kraftwerk Summer

Posted by Matthew Moyer on February 10, 2012

In the spirit of Stand By Me, Chris Hutsul remembers a (fake) youthful summer spent in the company of the man-machines of new wave: Kraftwerk! Whether at the arcade or the mall, Kraftwerk were the perfect summer best friends. Pure delight.

(Micro) Zine Of The Week: The Prince Zine

Posted by Matthew Moyer on February 3, 2012

The Prince Zine by Joshu James Amberson

Amberson (Basic Paper Airplane) gamely takes on the pop music enigma Prince with this one-off zine. Will he be able to accomplish what it took Ronin Ro 370 pages to do in HIS Prince book? Surprisingly yes. Great for novices and obsessives.
