Dynamite Hemorrhage favorites SALLY SKULL just reunited a few weeks ago after 18+ years for a new show, which you can watch in its entirety here. If you’d like to read the interview I did w/ them, Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 is still (barely) available here.
SALLY SKULL, a formidable 1990s lo-fidelity garage punk/pop powerhouse whom we interviewed in Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 (about 15 copies still available….!), are reuniting to play in Edinburgh, Scotland in a few weeks.
How about that?
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)
– 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
Collage made by SALLY SKULL, originally intended to be in a CD retrospective of their 1990s singles and unreleased tracks that (criminally) never came out.
This was a CD insert that was supposed to be on an aborted SALLY SKULL retrospective called “Skullduggery”. By aborted, I mean it never came out, and that 1994-97 Sally Skull stuff is still nearly impossible to find unless you drop a few bucks on one of their two 45s via Discogs.
Of course, you can get the entire backstory on this excellent raw garage/artpunk band via Dynamite Hemorrhage #1 fanzine, which has an interview w/ Claire & Saskia from the band.
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.
