Proof I Exist #20 by Billy McCall

Billy got into music in a way that I wanted to back in the 1990’s. He had a BMG subscription. Though that didn’t do it for him, a local Lollapalooza did. Then again, it just made him want MORE.

“Proof I Exist #20” is about how Billy got into music and why he continues to play in a band. He loves it. Even though sometimes it can be fleeting, the overall satisfaction is lasting.

With sixteen pages, this quarter-sized zine is cut-and-paste, cut-and-dry, text on photocopied background goodness. It was printed on cut-offs from another project, making it a real low-budget printing job.

If you would like to order a copy, contact Billy (iknowbilly@gmail.com). It is currently $1 and there are less than fifty copies available. Once it’s gone, it’s all over, baby.

Tin Can Telephone #1 by DJ Frederick

 

Tin Can Telephone was previously known as Paper Radio, which was mainly a media and radio fanzine. Now in its fifth incarnation, anything goes. In the first issue, there are three essays, one of which is a very insightful and personal glimpse into Fred’s transition from an angsty young adult into the next chapter of his life.

Other features include Concert Reviews, a book review of Steve Diamond’s “What The Trees Said”, and Fred’s Question of the Day.

As Fred is my father, I do have a bit of personal bias when it comes to his writing. Like most of his zines, Tin Can Telephone is Digest-sized with a few visual aids to compliment the entries, and 20 pages.

You can order a copy by sending $3 (Cash Preferred) to: Frederick Moe | 36 West Main Street | Warner, NH 03278
