ISSUE #10 IS OUT NOW

ISSUE #10 IS OUT NOW! 


This time around the music takes a bit of a break and the focus is on zine writers - young and old, past and present - from all over the shop. On top of that there is all the usual mess of articles, rants, reviews and fun activities for all the family that you have come to expect!

100 copies with a full-color cover. Get in touch for a hard copy or read it online!

ISSUE #10 HAS A DEADLINE

Like, what would punk rock be without repeatedly missing deadlines? Anyway, Crucial Zine got invited to TWO amazing fests next weekend, so the proverbial whip has been cracked to finish up all remaining articles and layouts so that issue 10 gets printed in time. Unfortunately human cloning has not even reached "Multiplicity" levels yet, so if it's not ready, come by anyway to support these awesome groups of people and make fun of me for procrastinating.

UPDATE!

A few mundane problems got in the way and caused delays, but everything is back on track! Issue 10 is looking pretty good and will be out sooner, rather than later If you'd still like to contribute something, have a look here and then get in touch (FB is easiest). Here's a little preview of the kick ass cover though, to get you all worked up! You can play this in background for a proper epic effect.
 
 GAIN TRUE COSMIC AWARENESS WITH CRUCIAL ZINE

Also, chatting with Ian from Aahhh!! Real Records one night, I came up with the idea of doing a punk meme one-page zine. So here is DEEP CUT, a regressive little dity that is totally free if you buy anything from the shop. How cool is that?

2019 AND BEYOND!

Despite the setbacks, 2018 was a pretty good year for Crucial Zine. The CB1 Years collection was arguably the biggest endeavor so far and a sobering reminder of just how far this ship has traveled on the edges of cultural oceans in these ten years

To all readers - old and new - I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my weathered heart for taking the time to flick through these pages and hope that you were at least mildly amused/entertained. 2019 will be an even more exciting year and I would love for you to stick around or join in on the fun (and please tell your friends).
