In The Shadows of B23 (Greece, May 1991)

7INCHCRUST instant message:

Here's "In the shadows of B23" zine, #5, from May 1991. It included a 7" for free (not included in download). A grand 39 Mb - sorry for using rapidshare.. :/

Click here!

Thanks 7Inchcrust!

RELIGION!!!! Is the...

Here then is a run of Game of The Arsehole (USA), issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 4.6 [sic], 6 & 7. It is a fanzine that at first look like a newsletter being only a few pages and without blowout covers with logos etc. As you will read on the first page of the first issue its "purpose is to talk about punk rock music". Stuart Schrader, who made this zine, also have a website called SHIT-FI on which you will find lots of very reasonable and intelligent articles written on Shitlickers, Confuse, Japcore as well as some music to download and what may or may not be the webs no. 1 ARCHIVE for ANTI CIMEX. Thanks to Zach & Stu for sending me the link/upload.

"Did Erich Keller shoot J.F.K.?"

Traitor 2 (USA) = A fatted-up issue which will hold a real man on the can for at least half an hour (and using the zine for toilet-paper!!!). This fanzine is from the USA and is made by one of the halfwits that produced the rag known as Barfu's Funhouse (see below). It includes interviews with Fear of God, Protes Bengt and much much more. You need this.

Click here.

More trouble.

First issue of Traitor made by Sean from Damaging Noise blog & Chtuwulf. This boosts interview with FEAR OF GOD, some dude at Earache Records and lots of "nonsensical rants and blitherings". A must have and a must read. Lol.

Click here.

"Yes trouble!"

Sean from Damaging Noise sent me some zines in PAPER / HARDCOPY - which you are all welcome to do too, if you don't want to struggle with a printer et al (leave a comment) - this is the first, hotly off the scanner just now.

BARFO's FUNHOUSE No. 1 (USA, Aug 2001).

Includes an interview with SIEGE, Cluster Bomb Unit and Regurgitate and some "classy commentary". Made by Paul Barfo of Godstomper and Sean of Chtuwulf (I guess).

As a sample page I just had to post the homage post to the Swankys:

Kill Your Pet Puppy Fanzine (IN COLOUR!!!)

"KYPP was started by Tony D as a reaction to the way the original punk movement had been sucked into the hated Record Industry establishment.

Tony D was the founder and publisher of Ripped & Torn. When Thatcher was elected as prime minsister Tony moved to Europe and lived a bohemian lifestyle. Tony returned in September of that year and began work on a new publication that reflected punk life as it was under the Thatcher cosh: squatting, skinhead BNP attacks, speed being replaced by tuinol and scraping a rainbow life from the hell of reality.

This new publication became a reality after Joly of Better Badges agreed to print the new publication (then title unknown) in as many crazy colours as Tony wanted. Both wanted to experiment.

A name was born in the puppy collective hell of one room squatted by eight people with no bathroom or running water. Kill Your Pet Puppy was the chosen moniker.

The first issue was finished in time for the Ants new years eve concert at the Electric Ballroom Dec 79/Jan 80.

500 copies were finished and taken to the event. 500 copies were sold that night."

- From the about page on the official website

KYPP backissues - 1-6 are now available here (offsite).


Admin note: I was going to offer a mirror download of beginning with issue 1 on our site here but then I realised that issue 1 was 300mb in total and I don't know how to do PdFs (yet, lol)...but good news is that you can read full zines on the link above. :) Thanks to Tony D !!!

"Chaos System"

Good name for a zine or a band?

Anyway, no zines in this post I am afraid. Just a few words to update those of you who are manically obsessively watching this site in hope of salvaltion (me included).

I have some zines that I'll scan as soon as I have a second (including some sent by Sean from Damaging Noise blog, IN HARDCOPY!!). From what I can gather from the contributors some are experessing computer problems, lifeproblems, traveling, and/or are simply chewing the fat (like me). But there'll be a bunch of updates this coming week so don't worry.

More importantly, the idea of this archive is STRICTLY ON A LONG TERM OPERATION, mate. That means that what you see here will be available for as long as the internet is around. And in this context I must admit that there is a lot of work still to do with the website which will one fine day take the place of this blog, but fear not it is rolling on slowly but surely...

I have also starting working on a completely far-out 1981 / 1982 STUDS BRISTLES HARDONS and MOHIKAN fanzine which may or may not become a new title or simply a continuation of one or the other of the circa 100 farebrained zines that I have done already. Expect the usual suspects mentioned at Only In It For The Music. (This zine will naturally be up here as soon as it is done, fuck that money making shit yo!)

...and I was thinking of Punks Is Hippies The Zine as a name but perhaps that is too pretentious? Perhaps will stay with Chaos System or Glue System for now....

Ok, stay free

Thanks for all the help and interest so far, it is obviously highly appreciated,

Tony / Slobodan Burgher

ps. if you would like to be added as contributor or help by sending scanned iamges/files of fanzines or hardcopies of fanzines xeroxed or original, new zines old zines, zines in Chinese or in Finnish, please drop me a lin at SlobodanBurgher (at) gmail (dot) com or drop a line in the comments. ds
