Sincere apologies for always flogging the Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine in this space – but if not here, where, right? So here’s the deal – the 100 or so copies I have left are all for sale here.
Starting in mid-May, I’m going to have to stop selling them for 3 months, because I’ll be living in Oslo, Norway (!) until August, and unable to ship from there. I mean, I think they’ve got post offices in Norway, perhaps inside whaling stations, but am still not sure. Better safe than sorry.
So if you’re interested in owning what some people have called “One of 2014’s fanzines”, here’s what’s in it:
– An in-depth interview with Chris D., Los Angeles-based punk rock earth-turner, who founded and fronted The Flesh Eaters; ran a pioneering record label called Upsetter; almost released the first Black Flag album; wrote dozens of reviews and helped to edit the seminal Slash magazine; put out his own fanzine with Exene, John Doe & Judith Bell; and much more – all before 1979 was finished. This interview focuses solely on that period of his career
– The first and only retrospective and posthumous interview with SALLY SKULL, a fantastic 1990s all-female Scottish band who made raw, jarring garage punk music with dollops of angularity and dirty pop hooks
– Mail interviews with SEX TIDE and HOUSEHOLD, two current bands working the circuit who happen to be two of Dynamite Hemorrhage’s very favorites
– Quickie interview with BONA DISH, a recently-resurrected early 80s UK countryside band who are poster children for the rough-hewn, spaced-out DIY sound that we’ve all come to worship from that era and country
– Big retrospective on 1980s and 1990s underground music fanzines (like Damp, Butt Rag, Dagger, Two Hundred Pound Underground etc.) by the editor of Fuckin’ Record Reviews blog
– 60-something record reviews written by Erika Elizabeth and Jay Hinman
– 15-something book reviews by Jay & Erika
