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!

I’ve been on a bit of a bender this year listening to sparse, cracked and echoey female folk/strum in the SIBYLLE BAIER / VASHTI BUNYAN mode, and my favorite discovery this side of MAXINE FUNKE is my most recent one – JULIE BYRNE.

Byrne is actively recording and touring, like, now. She’s the most Baier-like of them all, while retaining her own minimalist approach to ghostly closet folk, veering off into non-guitar experimental pieces at times as well. Start with the semi-recent 45 “Melting Grid” and the LP “Rooms With Walls and Windows” and go from there.

When I resuscitate Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio (soon) I’ll be playing Ms. Byrne and some of her progenitors. Until then – please listen here.
