I’m pleased as punch to be with you here in the new year and to bring Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #167 to fruition. Stumbled upon new stuff from LAMPS, PREENING, THE LEFT OUTSIDES, SLEEPER & SNAKE and KNEELING IN PISS, all of which I thought it important that you hear.

This is a special 65 minutes of solo acoustic guitarists from around the world, with all of them barring one being new & active 21st-century players. Not the usual Dynamite Hemorrhage program, and that’s why it’s a “special edition”. You’ll hear guitar geniuses like NICK JONAH DAVIS (pictured), GWENIFER RAYMOND, JULIAN LEDRU, MATTHEW J. ROLIN and others, playing the deep American primitive jams we associate with Fahey, Basho, Rose and an entire fretboard lineage descended from pre-WWII blues.
GWENIFER RAYMOND – Hell For Certain MATTHEW J ROLIN – One Day I Will Be Free JAKUB SIMANSKY – Enfant Terrible Death Ride JOHNNY YOUNG – Bayberry Family Blues NICK JONAH DAVIS – The Peacock Dance WILL CSORBA – Time Was Like Water (And I Was The Sea) NATHAN SALSBERG – Impossible Air JACK ROSE – Rappahanock River Rag (for William Moore) JULIEN LEDRU – Acqua Alta JIM O’ROURKE – There’s Hell in Hello, But More in Goodbye LORNA ROWE – Logan Pass
As per company policy, whenever we sell out of a Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine back issue, it goes up onto the site as a downloadable PDF. Our seventh issue from the tail end of 2019 is now officially gone – as are all the issues except for the most recent one – and so we’ve made the 7th – as well as all the other ones – available via PDF if you want to take a look.
To make it easy for you, here are all the fanzines you can download from me right in one place:

Dynamite Hemorrhage #8 is, as usual, a 48-page, “digest-sized” music fanzine devoted to sub-underground rock music from the last six or so decades. Like the previous four issues, it’s an A5-sized issue with no advertisements.
This is a “very special” issue that is fully devoted to the Los Angeles punk magazine SLASH, which existed from 1977 to 1980 and could be said to be the greatest of its kind. We’ve interviewed Slash magazine founders Steve Samiof and Melanie Nissen, as well as multiple contributors to the magazine, including Allan MacDonell, David Allen and Chris D.
The issue also includes:
A single-issue dissection of Slash from August 1979 – our means of understanding just how phenomenal this magazine could be on a per-issue basis
The day The Decline of Western Civilization filmed at Slash
Kickboy Face discovering, championing and helping to further hardcore punk – with a reprint of his amazing April 1980 Black Flag show review
An interview with Peter Urban, remembering Slash‘s San Francisco scene correspondent Caitlin Hines
An interview with Ivar Muñoz-Rojas on his “Underground Babylonia” book, his deep dive into the punk-era life of Slash co-founder Philomena Winstanley
Vivian Goldman on Slash & Reggae
Larry Hardy on discovering and buying Slash magazine as a teen

Oh – and The Plugz, Scratch Acid, UXA(pictured), the Count Five, Uzi and a quartet of “modern music” gems from my 7th grade record collection.
