Anyone's got any of the 7 or 8 or so issues of RIOT FANZINE? Get in touch. I wanna read that shit again. Health Hazard, Chicago beerfests and sqautties in dreadlocks playing stoner grind crust before it turned into d-beat. First bunch of issues were painstakenly handwritten, the layout was like something straight off the back of some Amebix vinyl. Great stuff.
Irony is that I of course had pretty much the complete run of Riot, tucked up somewhere in my parents house. Last Christmas I asked if my mum had seen my old fanzine collection:
-Yes, she had seen it.
-Well, where is it then?
-I threw it in the recycling box but I kept your school books...
Here's a review from somewhere:
RIOT #7 / 32pgs.Joe always seems to put out a great 'zinefocusing mainly on the musical side ofpunk with interesting interviews and reviews up the ass. This issue's got Health Hazard, Econochrist, Dead Wrong , Crossed Out, Chris Dodge, Hellnation, Drop Dead and Hiatus. Nice, clear photos and a couple columns hold everything together in one hell of a great 'zine. Keep it up! FB (RIOT, JOE RIOT, 21 EBNAL ROAD, SHREWSBURY, SHROPSHIRE SY2 6PW. £1 +A5 SAE PUNK)
