Shock & Awe #04 – Out Now!!
A bit past the deadline, but the latest issue is here
The latest issue of SHOCK & AWE is a bonafide page-turner, boss
Throughout the years many hardworking punks (bless ’em) came together and collectively tried putting out a regular zine or two which would attempt to chronicle and document the scene; prepare blank canvases for the many disparate voices to paint their latest bile; and highlighting what are the bees knees and what is the stinking bullcrap swimming in the local DIY underground today!
Trust me, it’s not an easy job. Striving to have a regularly published fanzine is already an excruciating pain; let alone having a plain, no-nonsense and entertaining read which we all can treasure and be proud of.
Many had given their best, and many given up the ghost, dejected and defeated. The zine scene is littered with broken-hearted fingers, and lonely blogspot pages.
To the fallen, we thank you; to the ones still at it, we salute you! But please don’t be sad, SHOCK & AWE is still here! It’s the 4th issue and it gets better! Do grab a copy, read it, enjoy it, use it to wipe yr arse, etc. = please contribute – ideas, criticism, letters, info, recipes etc. The scene is what you make of it, and lets start with this one fine attempt
68-pages, professionally-printed A4, with 11 columnists, long interviews with DAIGHILA & THIS IS ATLANTIS, loadsa news and opinions and 10 pages of music, book & film reviews! The best issue so far, people! And you just know it’s gonna get better!!
go here to see if your local distro has it on their shelves:
or you can always contact the increasingly fat S&A crew themselves:
Do attend the zine launch shows:
Thank you for sharing my excited rambling! But trust me, you wouldn’t regret it!
