Chemical Warfare #4
Youth Of Today, Totalitär, Stikky and Fugazi, all in one issue you ask? You bet! This was one of my favorite 'zines back in the day, I'll dig up a little and try to find other issues I know I had.
Growing up in a rural area of an isolated country, 'zines were the main providers of information not only about bands and punk's musical sub-genres but also about different ideas being debated in the scene(s). I'll be forever thankful to those individuals who in the late 1980's and early 1990's spent their (unemployment or otherwise) money in sending 'zines, leaflets, tapes and records. In fact, I wrote to many of the addresses featured in Chemical Warfare #4, including Revelation Records, who sent me free copies of the Judge's album plus singles by YOT and Quicksand since I was the first to write them from Israel! Who said "Revelation can suck it", huh?
In any case, I hope you'll enjoy the fanzine
