Come down to this sweet party on Sunday to pick up the new issue of Crucial Zine and our Athens counterparts, the one and only Puke Soup! I'll be spinning all the great UK ska/punk I have been bitching about all these years, so you know you don't want to miss this!

Yo! Issue #11 is out! A minor cold actually kept me from getting this uploaded sooner, but here we are! This 56-page monolith of an issue features interviews with Satanic ska/punk legends Mephiskapheles, upcoming stand-up comedian Rose Vineshank, an insightful scene report from Drama by Tso Nee, a noob's guide to the Black Flag discography, radical coloring pages by Danai and a bitching cover by Aleks.

On top of that there is usual dose of science, video-games, zine and music reviews, cross-words, photos and other rants on the small and important things in life to sink your teeth in! I will be taking this to the print shop on Monday, so hard copies should be available mid-week! Also, make sure you're free this Sunday, yeah? 😏

Be the most stylish hardcore warrior at your local record/food store or the beach with this legit-as-fuck tote bag with thunderlizards! You can get one for seven euros via the shop, or have a look on Twatbook for some sweet deals!

If you like the design and would like to wear this as a shirt or sweater, let us know! If there's enough interest we'll get some more rad stuff done! ;)

PS: Issue 11 is getting along spectacularly! Expect some updates on this next week - it should be dropping in October, as planned.

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!

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.

Crucial Zine and a load of other zines will be there, so come say hi!

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.

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?
