No Future # 1

No Future is a new zine from Greece created by Bak who runs Into The Pit photoblog. Here is a nice review taken from Words and Stuff web-zine:
"This is something new. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a punk zine from Greece focusing on crust and grind or as it self described on the cover "Skull Crushing D-beat Holocaust zine". In this first issue you will find interviews with Dir Yassin and Cut Your Throat, articles about Myspace, christianity, companies that do testing on animals and the article "Anarcho-punk, the ALF and the miners’ strike - a cautionary tale from the 1980s" and of course music and zine reviews. The layout -as expected- is dark and gloomy as it should be. There have been some minor mistakes on the layout and the printing (which is otherwise very good, no photocopies here) but this was the first attempt and I’m sure that the next issue will be improved. Let’s hope there will be a follow up".
The title of zine could be taken as No Future #1, there is a #2 issue (No Exit #2), Bak also runs Skull Crusher Distro.

Subcore # 1, Norway 1987

That's right COLERA interview. Also frigging BULLDOZER interview. Wow. How fucking amazingly cool is that? Anyway, SUBCORE was a Norwegian zine in English and this is issue 1 from 1987.


Also, there is a forum discussion for Norwegian fanzines online at 800 Grader which you may find interesting, lots of linkage and such. Moreover, for industrial and noise fanzines check out Shock Corridor, an archival project not unlike PIH...Finally, on a personal note I am pleased to reveal that I have acquired (for free) a photocopier and shall commence a new newsletter sometime in 2009, stay tuned for more info on this.

Thanks once more to Kjell for another fantastic fanzine, which hopefully will be now be eternally conserved digitally.

Skvaller # 3, Sweden 1984

Skvaller # 3, from Jonkoping, Sweden, has Produkt Assar on the cover and interviews inside with T.S.T., The Alternative (UK), Special Duties, Asta Kask-Micke about his studio, The Adicts, Upright Citizen etc and as the name of the fanzine implies gossip about bands! All in all a quite good example of a rather wellmade Swedish early 1980s zine...too little Discharge for my liking but nice nonetheless ha ha.

Now download.

Thanks goes out to Kjell for this one and the last 10 or so zines posted.

Spanner in the works # 2, UK 1986

Electro Hippies interview!!! All the prompts you need to know, now download!

Click here.

Rundgang # 5, (Sweden, 1986)

6 kronor? Boasts interviews with G.B.H., Toy Dolls and from my point of view more importantly Attentat. It is in Swedish, but if you ask politely I might translate/transcribe selected sections of zine.

Asocial (again!)

Here is a fresh scan -and I think I am right in saying this one is slightly better quality- of a previous posted Swedish fanzine called Asocial. PIH strives to serve.


Previous posts. Here. And here (issuu).

Black & White # 4 (UK, 1984)

Black & White # 4 (UK, 1984) came with a split flexi containing Youth Brigade and 7 Seconds (scan of cover included with scan of zine, but not the music). Free flexis with fanzines was a great great underrated feature of pre-internetdays. Ohhh nostalgia...
