Instead of my usual pre-review rantings, I’ll put this space to good use by hawking some ‘zines, (Thanks to everyone who sent us mags and keep them coming.)
X-CLAIM #3 has JUSTICE LEAGUE, THE MENTORS, FAIL SAFE, ANTHROPHOBIA, POINTLESS, and NECRAEEDIA, plus lots of usefull reviews. Packed tight with all of these this plus art is poetry. A great mag, 39 pages. Only 50 cents and two Stamps to Chuck Miller, 20 Northview Dr. Sowers Point NJ 08244.
JERSEY BEAT #32 has GENOCIDE, SPEED THE PLOUGH, YUNG LU, and, as the cover says, too many reviews. This way focuses on various forms of underground music (not much HC/punk). Insightful, though, 30 pages. $1 to 418 Gregory Ave Weehawken, NJ 07087.
NO IDEA #5 with BAD BRAINS, SNFU, GOVERNMENT ISSUE, FISHBONE, SHORT DOG GROW, CAPITOL PUNISHMENT, MUTLEY CHIX, and FLAMING LIPS. This may be the best independent mag around. 48 pages $1 to 3925 S.W. 3rd Ave., Gainesvilla, FL 32607. [TONY]
