(Micro) Zine Of The Week: Lou Reeder

Posted by Matthew Moyer on June 8, 2012

Lou Reeder / You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory split-zine
by Corrina Fastwolf and Matt Monochrome

A chance conversation while out on a record shopping expedition
birthed this split-zine, wherein memories of Lou Reed fandom (circa
Berlin no less!) segue gracefully into a tale of high school
misfits trying to turn a whole school onto the Violent Femmes.

New Zines For May 2012

Posted by Matthew Moyer on May 22, 2012

This month’s selection of zines is a bit different than what we’ve been offering the last few months. Sure we’ve got a great selection of newer zines (you’ve got to check out Taking the Lane), but we also cataloged a bunch of donations – including those gifted to us by the great Dave Mitchell – so what that means is this month you can read hardcore zines from the mid to late-Nineties, minicomix and Sci-Fi fanzines from the early Nineties, and a fan newsletter for Seinfold devotees. Don’t bother cranking up the time machine, just head to the Main Library downtown!

(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.
