NOW TAKING PRE-ORDERS

** Pre-Order Now – out the first week of May 2016 **

Dynamite Hemorrhage #3 is an 84-page music fanzine devoted to
sub-underground music from the last five decades. Like the others, this
is an 8.5"x11" MAGAZINE with a color cover and B&W insides.

It features:

  • The definitive story of THE VELVET UNDERGROUND APPRECIATION
    SOCIETY
    , as told through an interview with VUAS founder Phil Milstein.
    Find out what it was like to lead the secret society of Velvets fiends
    in the 1970s and how Milstein managed VUAS with the fans and with the
    Velvet Underground members themselves.
  • An epic, Homeric oral history of wiry & jagged 1980s San
    Francisco pop band WORLD OF POOH, as told by band members Barbara
    Manning, Brandan Kearney and Jay Paget themselves, as well as choice
    anecdotes from those who witnessed their rise, reign and collapse
  • In-depth interviews with four of the finest acts making rock and
    roll music in the year 2016: WHITE FENCE (Tim Presley); Portland, OR’s
    LITHICS
    ; Oakland’s RAYS and Auckland’s THE COOLIES
  • An interview with phenomenal lost folk singer SIBYLLE BAIER, whose
    early 1970s recordings from Germany appeared a decade ago and stunned
    the world. We found her & gave her the Dynamite Hemorrhage
    once-over, and then went and interviewed & celebrated five of her
    ghostly folk “heirs” (MAXINE FUNKE, JULIE BYRNE, ALLYSEN CALLERY, JOANNE
    ROBERTSON
    and MYRIAM GENDRON) as well as part of the piece
  • “BELOW THE FLYING NUN”, Gregor Kessler’s piece on some of the wildest and most obscure New Zealand 45s of the 1980s
  • An interview with SARA FANCY, aka “Sara” from early 80s UK DIY acts
    Sara Goes Pop and Amos & Sara. You’ll learn about her journey from
    the squats of Europe to the bodybuilding competitions of the 90s to the
    tranquil equine therapy practice she leads today. A fascinating glimpse
    and first look back she’s given on her time spent making music with Jim
    Welton (aka L Voag, Amos etc.)
  • The first-ever posthumous interview with early 80s all-female
    Belgian punk band UNIT 4, who surfaced on the “FM-BX Society Tape” in
    1981 with four amazing songs of shimmering Kleenex/Delta 5/Au Pairs-ish
    brilliance
  • David Perron’s “FREE FORM FREAKOUT” column of outside and experimental tape & LP releases from the last year
  • Jay Hinman and Erika Elizabeth also wrote 82 record reviews devoted
    to the nether regions of sub-underground rocknroll and elsewhere

ORDER IT NOW & YOU’LL GET IN IN EARLY MAY, and that’s a promise!

Just finished putting together our interview with Sara Fancy, aka Sara, aka Sara Goes Pop, aka one half of Amos & Sara – early 80s sub-underground UK DIY lounge pop from another dimension.

Tracking her down required some real internet sleuthing, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. This will be part of Dynamite Hemorrhage #3 fanzine, out in a couple months. In the meantime, take a listen to 1981′s “In a Hell-Bed” here.

DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE fanzine #3 is coming together nicely.

I’m expecting it to be another 84-page or larger magazine, and current timeframe is June-ish, 2016. Perhaps earlier if we can swing it. Erika Elizabeth remains in the contributing editor’s chair, and so far we’ve got interviews with White Fence, Unit 4 and the Velvet Underground Appreciation Society on the way or in the can. More on the way.

See those fellas in the picture there? Those are the Desperate Bicycles. They are a – some would say the – UK DIY punk band of much renown, circa 1977-80.

If I could put together one interview with any band to round out this issue, it’d be them. They were notorious even back then for avoiding anything approaching the limelight, and they’ve done absolutely zero to capitalize on any posthumous interest in the band in the 35+ years hence. So I recognize my chances are exceptionally slim. But man, wouldn’t an interview w/ them be something worth reading, even if it was me asking a bunch of ham-handed questions?

Does anyone in the Dynamite Hemorrhage orbit know any of these four gentlemen? Or anyone in their social circle? Even Jon Savage said he couldn’t help me. Can you? Drop me a line at dynamiteh@outlook.com if so. I’ll put the odds at about 100-1 for this one.

Other people we’d like to interview for Dynamite Hemorrhage #3, and the odds of us actually finding them:

  • Kendra Smith (Opal/Dream Syndicate): 5-1
  • Sara, aka Sara Fancy (Amos & Sara/Sara Goes Pop): 10-1
  • Darby Crash: 100-1
