ZINES!
Volume One: Incendiary Interviews with Independent Publishers

from Re/Search Publications
$15 plus $1.50 postage

 

Flaunting off-beat interests, extreme personal revelations and social activism, zines directly counter the pseudo-communication and glossy lies of the mainstream media monopoly. These interviews with a dozen zine creators (per volume) capture all the excitement associated with uncensored freedom of expression, while offering insight, inspiration and delight. Vol.1: Beer Frame, Crap Hound, Fat Girl, Thrift SCORE, Bunny Hop, OUTPUNK, Housewife Turned Assassin, Meat Hook, X-Ray & more! EXCERPT: ZINES! VOL. 1 Empowered by the "DO IT YOURSELF" (DIY) philosophy of the punk rock revolt of the '70s, thousands of dissatisfied, savvy malcontents are expressing their authentic thoughts and feelings via the cheapest print medium available: xeroxed zines. There are other affordable means of independent communication, including stickers, flyers, posters, newsletters, home-made cassettes, 7" vinyl singles, and pixelvision filmmaking using discontinued Fisher-Price cameras whose "film" is a cheap standard cassette tape. However, the zine remains the fastest, most conveniently reproducible and effective means of getting a substantial message across.
