Crisis Point No. 1 (UK, 198?)
Here's a zine that I bought in a collection of old UK zines. Scanning the pages I considered whether I should keep the real life colour of the pages or convert into greyscale. Considering how precious this zine what with pages almost falling apart, print really vague and so on, I decided in the end to keep it the way it is. I like the idea of conservation of shit like this, it kind of gives legitimacy to the zine archive (in a way that is, I know, in stark contrast to fact that the website is based on a blogspot template but you know, we're working on it...).
I know there is a 3rd issue as well so there should be a second one too, but apart from that I know jackshit about the zine. Anyway, this first issue of the zine has interview with SUBHUMANS, Culture Shock, Oi Polloi, Maniac, Hung drawn Quartered (?), as well as some other stuff including amusing little charmy History of Discharge and something on CONCRETE SOX (don't you just love it when zines have stuff inside that is NOT advertised on the front; that's a prompt for you to download EVERY single zine here because you will NEVER know what you are missing if you don't!!! Seriously, think about it) and, yes, much more. The print is indeed very vague at places which is due to the weight of time and who knows perhaps hap hazardous storage...
(Please note: Ultra large folder at more than 100 mb - but if you want this then that should not be a problem)
