I was interviewed by Andy Wood from UK sub-underground/experimental/improv fanzine TQ in his ninth issue about Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine, podcast and whatnot. Andy gave me the green light to re-print it here in case you’re interested, and of course, you’ll probably want the analog version of his magazine instead & can subscribe, order back issues and learn more about it right here.
Here are a few quality songs I’d like to play for you this time – many of which I believe you’ll enjoy greatly. We start with something from the newly-reissued SIMPLY SAUCER proto-punk/psych classic. We continue with new stuff from BALANS, HONEY RADAR, YUZO IWATA and AQUARIUM. There’s even a heapin’ helping of stuff from the library – everyone from Dadamah to The Whitefronts to 8 Eyed Spy to Buck Biloxi and the Fucks.
Download it & stream it, and go and tell the people.

Back issues of Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine have become awfully scarce all of sudden, with Dynamite Hemorrhage #1, #3 and now #4 having sold out. Thanks to those of you who ordered, sold or otherwise read them. #2 and the newest one, #5, are both available to purchase here.
I’m a big believer in keeping this stuff out there for those who might have missed out on physical copies, so here’s where you can go to read (and download a PDF of) Dynamite Hemorrhage #4.
This one featured zero ads and no contributors except for Jay this time. It also featured the following:
- An interview with Julie Cooper of THE KIWI ANIMAL. She was one half of the 1980s New Zealand underground, independent folk duo, which also featured Brent Hayward (ex-Shoes This High) as the other half. Later expanded to a trio, their music ranks among the most sublime and creative sounds music of the era, and they continue to be criminally unrecognized, even by rabid aficionados of 80s Kiwi sounds.
- THE SHIFTERS, Melbourne, Australia heroes of “alternative drunk pop jazzy ciggies neo-country jams”. We corralled them for an interview in an effort to get at the dark heart of their skiffle.
- A record-by-record overview of HAPPY SQUID RECORDS, the label put together by John Talley-Jones of The Urinals in the late 1970s. It’s a look at their first ten years of existence, from The Urinals through 100 Flowers, Leaving Trains, Angst, God and the State and more. Even “The Rub”!
- “100 45s That Moved Heaven and Earth” – the definitive argument-settling list of the best sub-underground rocknroll 45s of all time
- “Free Jazz Libertines” column; 25+ record reviews and more (well, not really more – that was truly everything, honestly)
Here’s another edition of the Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio programme, the 113th time I’ve dragged and dropped top-tier songs all over my laptop for your (and my) listening pleasure.
This time there’s new stuff from ASTRO CHILDREN, LITHICS (!!), PREENING, AQUARIUM, MELENAS, ALIEN NOSEJOB and P WITS. There’s also a “high concept” look at the top ten punk-era 45rpm singles that never existed, featuring everyone from The Screamers to Crime to Red Cross. Download it or stream it or do whatever you have to do…!

My “policy” is that once an issue of the Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine has completely sold through, and won’t be reprinted, hey – there’s really no reason to keep it from being read by as many people as possible.
After all, some folks put a lot of sweat equity into Dynamite Hemorrhage #3, from contributing editor Erika Elizabeth, to writers Gregor Kessler and David Perron, to the bands & artists themselves: Sibylle Baier, The Coolies, World of Pooh, Sara Fancy, Tim Presley/White Fence, Unit 4, Lithics, Phil Milstein, Rays and others. It oughta be available in perpetuity for their contributions alone.
So here it is – Issue #3, published in 2016, available for download. It was the last of the ad-supported, third-party-distributed, extremely-expensive issues we did (or will do).
Here’s the latest dose of sub-underground whatever from the depths of the Dynamite Hemorrhage mp3 roasts collection. You’ll hear new stuff from PRIVATE SECTOR, OLDEN YOLK, PREENING, BILL ORCUTT & CHRIS CORSANO, SPECK…..plus the “Sister Ray” and “Nazi USA” edits you’ve been waiting for your entire life. And more!
