We’ve got a new edition of the fanzine out now, and it’s ready to order here. It’s a 48-page, black & white, 9th issue of Dynamite Hemorrhage. Here’s what’s in it:
** AMERICAN CINEMA IN THE 1970s: A big, non-music deep dive into 70s American film, that endlessly inventive, cinematic two-way mirror that wallowed in societal and personal alienation, criminal malfeasance, sexual malaise, political disillusionment, crumbling marriages, downtrodden cities, labor unrest, paranoia, organized crime and numerous other uplifting 70s hallmarks. Tons of reviews, a couple of essays, a piece on films about 70s films, and a definitive top 50 list so you can start an argument with our editor.
** BURNT ENVELOPE: Interview with Anthony Pasquerosa, the man coordinating the blitzoid proto-punk antics of “The Eye” and “Jesus” in the Burnt Envelope project. We get to the bottom of what this genius testosterone thug rock is all about.
** KNEELING IN PISS: Columbus, Ohio DIY homespun low-fidelity pop/garage absurdity and one of the best things going right now. We talk about it all with prime mover Alex Mussawir.
** RECORD SHOPPING IN THE 1980s: What was it like to be a music-obsessed teenage idiot in California in the 1980s? Our editor was there, and he paints the scene, with reports from 1981 Berkeley and 1987 Los Angeles.
** MICHAEL FESSIER, JR.: A tribute to the lost Los Angeles writings of a journalist who probably never really got anything approaching his due, but who was as sharp and insightful as Joan Didion was on even her best day. We take a brief look at why.
Plus some record reviews and photos and all sorts of opinions about things.
One thought on “NEW: Dynamite Hemorrhage #9 fanzine”
From the thumbnail, thought I saw Cutter ‘n’ Bone, or was I looking at some band? No, first instinct was correct, and the great Cutter’s Way indeed features on the cover of the new DH! From scanning the contents, I think this issue could easily sport the ‘Best Issue Ever!’ hype that adorned copies of Famous Monsters in olden times, with considerable justification. I’ve got my best of the 70s US movie list ready for comparison; looking forward to going ‘oh, no way! agreed, etc.’ Remember Eddie Coyle was directed by a Brit, Paramount put up the money though (note that the Government Center the Modern Lovers sang about can be seen in Friends of EC). Where does Man Who Fell To Earth land? But this is marginal pedantry. Was 70s Cleveland not made immortal on film? The 70s – when film was so real you could smell the vandalised bathrooms. I thought Cutter’s Way was early 80s, though? Are we talking a long 70s (’68-’82) perspective? Counter-culture as moebius-strip road (or river) movie? As always, very best to you and more power to ye and your kin and more power to DH, AL and any and all other projects etc
