Here's another 'zine for you to browse. I'm sick so I'm not going to write a novel here. This is an English 'zine, the second and probably last issue, made by a man called Nick Moberly and a league of contributors: roughly half of the interviews were sent by other people, a few were made face-to-face after concerts, some were meant for another 'zine originally and so on. This also results in quite varied quality. At least the questions won't get too repetitive this way. Most of them tend to concentrate on more musical side of things instead of anything ideological. Layout is neat and readable, even if he does fall into the unfortunate habit of playing with fonts.
A definite plus on this 'zine is the attention given to the domestic, smaller bands, most of which are completely unknown to me. I wish more 'zines had had this sort of attitude instead of sending the same questions in different order to the same old "famous" bands. Not that this wouldn't have it's share of often seen names (Mortiis anyone?). But enough crap from me, read this for now.
