Thanks to Andy at Century Media for sorting the interviews with Devin and Stampin Ground. The bands for their time once more. Everything and everyone that pisses me off for actually giving me something to write about. Without it, thered be even less in this zine.
Thanks are due to the people who tried to convince me to keep the thing going or gave words of encouragement when they were badly needed. No point in names. Those people know who they are, and I hope, know that I am grateful and indebted to them.
The Review policy (which really doesnt change from issue to issue).
(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, most things reviewed in here I buy. I dont get (many) 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.
If you want your demo (or anything else) reviewed, then it would help if you send it to me. I havent always got the time and money to go searching for everything, even if Id like to. Ill review anything I get sent, though I wont guarrantte that Ill like it. If youve sent something and its not been reviewed, then I never recieve it. Same with zines, or whatever. If bands want fliers etc distributed with the zine, then pass them on and I will do so. 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.
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?
