52 pages (A5). Long interview with Brian Gorsegner (NIGHT BIRDS), a write-up about great records with even better early versions (SUBHUMANS, CRO-MAGS, YOUTH BRIGADE), BLOODY GEARS, SPRING ROLLS (an old band from Darwin), and another big batch of local/national gig photos. Plus the usual salty editorial and a load of live and record/tape reviews.
Review from Scanner zine:"This Australian zine is rapidly becoming one of my favourites. It’s got a great attitude; editor Alex has plenty of knowledge on what makes Punk Rock good and vital and writes with a direct bluntness and honesty that’s refreshing and very readable. The last 20 pages or so of this are taken up with photography with a multitude of bands cranking the jams live in Perth. They’re clear, up close and the print reproduction is good. Elsewhere there is a rather epic interview with NIGHT BIRDS (11 pages), a great (and thoroughly deserved) retrospective on BLOODY GEARS, a bunch of gig and record reviews, a bit of a dig at CAREER SUICIDE who fucked about with an interview, a look at re-recorded albums and their superior predecessors (SUBHUMANS (Canada), YOUTH BRIGADE, CRO-MAGS) and probably my favourite part of the zine, Alex’s editorial. I said above his writing is direct and very readable and it’s here that it is strongest. Printing is good, text is done on a typewriter but the layouts remain sharp and crisp. Recommended in every way."
