FALL reviews I wrote for Wipeout! fanzine, 1998.
Two BASSHOLES reviews, written by me for WIPE OUT! fanzine, 1998.
I was going through some old files and found that I’d actually written a batch of record reviews for Eric Friedl (aka Eric Oblivian)’s WIPEOUT fanzine in 1998 that I hadn’t seen nor remembered since that time.
I’m not even sure where to find the mag itself, but now that I have the reviews, I figure I’ll post them up here in the weeks to come. I appreciate Eric letting me yak up this stuff in his pages. I had “retired” from the print fanzine business that year, a retirement that lasted 15 years.
This one’s a record I also haven’t heard since 1998. Has anyone?
From WIPEOUT! fanzine #5.
Great overview on the demented doofus-rock of South San Francisco’s THE BRENTWOODS, taken from Wipe Out fanzine #9. The band featured Darren and Karen, immediately post-Supercharger, as well as Danielle from The Trashwomen and the resplendent “Patty” on vocals.
While it’s not the greatest scan my flatbed has ever rendered, it’s a fantastic fanzine from the early 90s – WIPE OUT! #6, penned by Eric Friedl/Oblivian, straight outta Memphis.
Terrific early 1990s fanzine put out by Eric Friedl, pre-OBLIVIANS, just as Goner Records was getting off the ground.
