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!

A few weeks ago it looked like our interview with White Fence’s Tim Presley wasn’t happening, so I wrote up this review of his mind-expanding W-X release from late last year.

Then we talked and all was well, but I still had this review saying we weren’t gonna sitting there. So it’s now out of the upcoming magazine, and plopped here on the Dynamite Hemorrhage blog instead:

W-X – “W-X” LP/CD

Tim Presley from White Fence stands head & shoulders above most mortals in his ability to burrow into one’s brain with melodic, playful shards of psychedelia. When we look back at this most recent decade a few years hence, I think he’ll be recognized as a touchstone genius for his era the way Alex Chilton or Mark E Smith are for theirs. He was supposed to be featured in a big way this issue, actually, but somehow that fell apart. Next year in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Presley quietly put out a solo side project called W-X this year, and it indulges some of the man’s more outré leanings, calling to mind a guy with a laptop, a week with the deck cleared, and a brain bursting at the seams. W-X is less a disambiguated thread of electro-knob twiddling and is surprisingly a cohesive whole, especially when listened to in a single sitting.

Through a couple of tracks sound like White Fence compositions that
he simply couldn’t wait to get on the next album – especially the
massive “Steer Clear” – others are first-rate, non-dimensional bizarro
world creations like “Brazilian Worm Band”. I’d even venture that some
of this might even be suitable to soundtrack some of those “video games”
you kids are always yammering about. A delightful apéritif as we
collectively wait to dine at the next White Fence smorgasbord. (Castle

We wouldn’t let a cold stop the barreling freight train of sub-underground rocknroll that is Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio #69, a podcast/faux radio show dedicated to perpetuating the idea that the talent-challenged are the true musical visionaries of the last five decades.

We debut new stuff from the likes of BENT, WOLFMANHATTAN PROJECT, THE STACHES, ASTRO CHILDREN, GØGGS, PATSY, THE WORLD and more. We take a big dip into that newly-reissued FLESH EATERS album you’re so excited about. And we even revisit the ear-shredding early 90s guitar action of SKULLFLOWER, while lightening the load a bit with library material from WORLD OF POOH, CRACK UND ULTRA ECZEMA (pictured), WHITE FENCE, THE SCREAMERS and more.

Do us a solid and give at least the first ten minutes a go, please?

DYNAMITE HEMORRHAGE #3 UPDATE

A new, large, overflowing Dynamite Hemorrhage fanzine’s on the way. We just need to actually make the thing first.

We just finished up an interview with Belgian early 80s punks UNIT 4 (pictured); we’ve persuaded Free Form Freakout’s David Perron to come aboard and write reviews of left-field, sub-underground, non-rocknroll weirdo records; we rounded up the members of late 80s/early 90s San Francisco falling-apart pop act WORLD OF POOH to agree to an oral history; we have an interview with Velvet Underground Appreciation Society founder Phil Milstein nearly done; and even 2016’s LITHICS are getting a well-earned place at the table.

Oh, there’s more as well. Tim Presley from WHITE FENCE will get a “Dynamite Hemorrhage grilling” in the near future. Erika Elizabeth’s writing record reviews. Jay’s writing record and film reviews.

If that sounds at all interesting, we’ll do our best to make sure it actually is. In the meantime, back issues are available right here.
