(Read if you have a demo or before you complain about the lack of stuff in here).
Well, basically the zine covers most things I hope. Rock, metal, punk, hardcore,twistedschizoidfunkaraggamuffin and all it's mutant cousins. it doesn't really matter. Labels just tend to be a convenience. But, pretty much everything reviewed in here I have to buy. I dont get freebies or advances from labels or anything. So, it tends to be something I buy in the hope Ill like. But if I dont, then I can feel justified in criticising.
Some people have passed stuff on to me, and to those people I try to offer thanks in the appropriate place.
If you want your demo reviewed, then youll have to send it to me. I havent always got the time and money to go searching for everything, even if Id like to. Buying CDs, tickets for gigs, paper, image unit for the printer to produce this zine etc costs me enough. I may not be a proper zine without all the obscure demo reviews, but Im not fucking loaded either. For bands with demos or wanting coverage and help, its a two way relationship with a zine. You have to help them as well as they help you.
But, well, if I dont like it, I wont include it. I dont want to go slagging stuff what people have produced, because even if its not to my taste, or very good in my opinion, its still better than anything I can do, and shouldnt totally be put down as a result. After all, if I could, Id be producing music instead of making half assed attempts to write about it. And, if I really like something, then I'll feature it as often as possible.
Well, I still like it, so I claim that its not someone who walks into a record shop and asks for a disc!
All spelling mistakes are intentional and on purpose, designed to test your skill of observation and not down to stupidity on my behalf. Well, not all the time. Factual mistakes are usually mine, but could be blamed on the computer, or the government, or just the little green men.
The views are my own, except those expressed by other people. If you disagree with them, fine. But remember, its only an opinion, everyones entitled to it, and its a semi-free country. But does it really matter?
