Now available, once again – Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 fanzine. We put this out the final week of December 2013 but had to stop selling our remaining copies due to a summer-long stint in Norway, which is now over.

Head over here and take a look at the right-hand column to order and pay via Paypal if you’d like a copy of this 68-page behemoth. It’s $7 plus the true shipping cost to get it to you in your country.

(Dynamite Hemorrhage #2 is coming in October 2014 – more bloated and more obsessive than ever)

#1 includes:

– 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 (Household R.I.P.) 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

– Advertisements from today’s top labels

Won’t you order one today?


Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 is now available for a mere $7 plus shipping to anywhere in the world. Seems like all the rad punkers, indie freaks and messed-up record obsessives must all have placed their orders already because our shipping and receiving department has been dead as a doornail this week.

Ordering instructions are to your right (if you’re reading this on dynamitehemorrhage.com) or at http://www.dynamitehemorrhage.com if you’re reading this on Tumblr.

Interviews with Chris D. (FLESH EATERS); Sally Skull; Sex Tide; Household; Bona Dish plus pages upon pages of reviews of vinyl, digital, print and beyond. “Only” 200 copies left….


Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #1 is now at the printer – and if anyone’s interested, we’re currently taking pre-orders. It will be shipped before December 31st, as I’ll have these in my hands right after Xmas.

What’s in this 68-page magazine, you ask? Here’s what we (me, Erika Elizabeth and Fuckin’ Record Reviews) wrote for you:

  • Lengthy interview with Chris D. (Flesh Eaters), focused solely on 1977-80 LA punk; Slash magazine; Upsetter Records and his band
  • Retrospective and interview with Sally Skull, 1994-97 all female, criminally forgotten low-fidelity Scottish garage/art/punk band
  • Interviews with Sex Tide and Household, two of today’s hottest young hitmakers
  • Interview with the fellas from Bona Dish, an early 80s UK DIY band who’ve recently surfaced again thanks to a reissue of their cassette material
  • A comprehensive piece by the editor of Fuckin’ Record Reviews blog on various obscure 80s/90s fanzines
  • 56 record reviews
  • 17 (lengthy) book reviews

It’s $7 plus shipping to anywhere in the world. In the US, tack on an additional $2 for shipping; $3.50 in Canada; $5 for anywhere else on the planet. If that’s a little much for you, and/or if you’ve spurned old-school print in favor of digital, there should be a tablet edition available for a mere $5 in coming weeks.

Ordering information – via Paypal – is right here on the Dynamite Hemorrhage site. You can also go into Paypal directly and fire over your order to us at dynamiteh(at)outlook(dotcom). It’ll be at your doorstep within a couple of weeks.


What’s going on with the Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine #1, you ask? Oh, you didn’t know? Yeah, I’m working on a print fanzine that will come out in less than 2 months – wrapping up all writing, ads and such by 12/1, with layout and printing happening in December. There’s so much stuff in there I think we may top 60-70 pages, no joke. Some highlights:

  • An interview with Chris D. (Flesh Eaters, Slash Magazine, Upsetter Records etc.) on Los Angeles punk rock, circa 1977-80
  • The first comprehensive retrospective & posthumous interview with Sally Skull, amazingly raw all-female Scottish garage band 1994-98 (pictured above)
  • Interviews with current stellar bands Household and Sex Tide
  • An interview with Bona Dish, short-lived early 80s UK DIY band who’ve recently been unearthed
  • Lost female-fronted bands of the past three decades
  • A ton of record and book reviews
  • Advertisements from today’s hottest young record labels
  • more more more

Stay close for pre-ordering details if you’re interested. More info to be provided in this space shortly.

It’s all about the young musicmakers of today this time on DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE RADIO – this 65-minute podcast features a bunch of ‘em, including brand new stuff from Household, Neonates, Wildhoney, The Ar-Kaics, Toxie, Terry Malts, Ruby Pins and even the swan song from Sic Alps. Holy mackerel. I also took a page directly from the book of New Zealand’s (and The Dead C’s) Bruce Russell, and played a set of kiwi postpunk, punk and noise from the early 1980s on “small labels”, just as Mr. Russell did on this excellent podcast. I was taking notes, as you’ll see. The show is rounded out by other sub-underground sound from Jackknife, Blast Off Country Style, The Spits, Dara Puspita, Bona Dish, Flesh Eaters and more.

BONA DISH were a UK band from 1981-82 who put out two cassettes of shambling, low-fidelity gauzy DIY pop. I only just heard the stuff this year. There’s word on the internet that the Captured Tracks label are planning to put these 2 tapes together as a new release, perhaps even as a “compact disc” (does anyone still do that?). 

In the meantime, here’s “Mutation” from their “On C30” tape from ‘81.


It’s not easy curating a definitive selection of the best sub-underground, late 70s UK 45s and comp tracks from the heyday of do-it-yourself record making, but I’ve put together a start. I’ve culled my newest 8Tracks mix, “SUB-UNDERGROUND UK DIY” from multiple sources: the “Instant Pop Classics” comps, various internet downloads, “Messthetics” and my own collection. Just like the compilation I posted yesterday of female-fronted riot grrl/garage punk, it’s available right now to listen to on computers, smartphones and tablets. 

Outside of the fairly-well-known (such as it is) DIY pioneers like The Desperate Bicycles and Animals & Men, most acts on here are ultra-obscure and maybe only lasted for one 45 or a couple of compilation tracks, sometimes only on cassette. 23 tracks in all. Most given to that tinny, experimental, slipshod and faraway sound that characterizes the best of the best of this posthumously-defined genre.

Come listen to "SUB-UNDERGROUND UK DIY" here.
