Marrried Punks #4: Bonds of Friendship Review

This review, transcribed as it originally appeared, was published in Married Punks #4, which came out in 1995.

Bonds of Friendship #7

I can't say enough good things about this! There's a great, non-cliched interview with Scott of Neurosis, but that's not what makes this 'zine required reading. The travel log of Joris' trip through the mid-east is incredible! The absolute best tour diary ever! You'll read this and look back on your trips and say, "Shit, I'm lucky." You hate taking the bus? Read about the bus that Joris and fellow passengers had to push start every time it stopped. You think you've pulled some illegal actions? Try bribing border patrols. You've seen violence? Joris was in a bus attacked by terrorists (could've been the army or police though) who shot it up with machine guns! Read about a dead baby being eaten by a dog, burning bodies, being followed by lepers, Monkey Temple, and much more. It doesn't get any more insane than this. He's done more in three months than most people do in a lifetime. Cometbus, look out ...
