*** UPDATE – thanks very much to our 8 buyers. That went quickly. Superdope #5 now officially deleted from the catalog ***

Look what the long weekend turned up. Just found the final 8 copies of SUPERDOPE #5, a fanzine I put out in 1992. 

They’re not doing much of worth sitting in my garage, so I’ve put these last copies up for sale if you’re interested. 

It reflects my obsessions of the day: raw third-wave garage punk (interviews with THOMAS JEFFERSON SLAVE APARTMENTS and THE NIGHTKINGS) as well as weirdo avant-pop (cover interview with FLY ASHTRAY).

Reviewers are by Jay Hinman, Tom Lax, Glen Galloway and Doug Pearson. There’s an article about the THINKING FELLERS UNION LOCAL 282 by Grady Runyan, and a piece about a still-active San Francisco dive bar called the Uptown by Jay.

Once these 8 copies are gone, this thing is finally, severely out of print. 

Check it out here.


Hot podcast alert. Glen Galloway, a longtime friend of the ‘Hemorrhage, just created the first of what we hope’ll be a long string of podcasts devoted to bent noise, ear-carving psych and general obscuro musical tomfoolery from many eras.

It’s called “SYPHON ME PLASMA”, and episode 001 is an hour of “early syphoning”, as the host tells it. Glen, a renaissance man who’s not only a strong family man, a man of of faith, and one who shreds the waves when he’s not doing his shredding on guitar, may be previously known to you as a prime mover over the years in Octagrape, Truman’s Water, Soul-Junk and probably a few more sub-underground projects. He’s got that trustworthy DJ voice that makes you feel like you’re in the hands of Walter Cronkite, and all will be well in the world.

He says he’s broadcasting from “the far side of Neptune”, but I’m pretty sure that’s just a hifalutin way of saying “San Diego”. I could be wrong. Anyway, check out the podcast by clicking the play button up there; he’s made it available for download as well (see that little arrow in the upper right-hand corner? That’s it).
