Kiss Off #14
$2 A6 32p 19g
On the inside cover the author of this zine asserts that ‘Kiss Off is a punk rock fanzine’. It contains several references to being a gigs, but the five stories in this zine are more about the in-between parts of punk lifestyle, which tries to negotiate a space at once part of and apart from the rest of the ‘public’. The stories revolve around social interaction in the lead up and aftermath of Toronoto’s G20 protests. “It was such an overwhelming feeling of dislocation that lingered throughout the weeks that followed. When the bulletproof men and women and their shiny boots finally left the city, what was left behind? Everything felt rearranged after. What remained seemed to be extremes of emotion, insomnia, dizziness, loss of appetite, and panic…”

“This small issue of Love Like Pop zine is specially designed for clandestine reading under tables and in situations where reading is decreed not a suitable use of working time. It hides away easily in pockets, and is also a useful carrying size when taking public transport.” Love Like Pop is a much loved zine from Perth about Rachael’s life: art; libraries; gigs and how to build a zine fort

Mutiny was a collectively edited zine from Sydney that documented local and international anarchistic ideas and actions. It was inspirational for its content and its editors’ dedication: they released a new issue every month for over three years before reducing output to once every two months. As of February 2014 there are plans for one final issue of Mutiny before the project is put to rest. Take Care has a very limited number of back issues available – order now before they’re all gone, or check out the Mutiny archive on the Jura Books website if you’re after a particular issue.

I have to admit that part of my inspiration for writing this zine was reading an issue of Brainscan and thinking: you know, I just want to write a zine that’s really chunky that you can’t read in one five-minute sitting. Nearly Healthy is about some of my experience with depression and anxiety, work and art, wanting to change the world and feeling that it’s impossible, and the inevitable questions that all these things generate. To quote Luke’s review on Broken Pencil (July 14 2010): “For me this zine is a masterpiece. It is difficult, heartbreaking, beautiful, wonderful, personal, revealing, at times hopeful and at times bleak. This is a really substantial, serious and important work of art.”

Following on from Village Ghosts zine (see elsewhere in this catalogue), Old Memory is a collage zine collecting images of ruins and quotes from various bibliographic sources. These complement a series of short pieces of writing in which the (anonymous) author remembers some of the rooms that they grew up in. The tone, like Village Ghosts and the author’s other zines (A Fresh Trail of Paper, Swampland, Hole in the Ground, A Walk Around Pendle Hill etc) is melancholy and weighted with a sense of loss and nostalgia. The zine gets you thinking about the effects that time has on both memory and the physical landscape.
