Married Punks #4: Vigilance Freezine Review

Originally published in Married Punks #4, which came out in 1995 (most likely). This is transcribed as it originally published.

Vigilance Freezine #3 Moo Cow #13

This split, newsprint 'zine is okay. On the Vigilance side there's a column on abortion and the futility of the terms used to deal with it. There's also some show listings. Fairly plain. The Moo Cow end has a great essay on moving and being scared. Great article! There's also a good deal of reviews and photos. Both 'zines also do a distro with fairly cheap prices, which that alone could be worth the stamp.

Married Punks #4: Vague Review

Originally appeared in issue #4 of Married Punks, published in 1995. Transcribed as it originally appeared.

Vague #2

Vague, in the same style as Want 'zine, staples in all the pages to make them double sided. This is also the blue issue so every page is hand painted blue. Inside is a recipe for egg salad, Mark's promise of what he'll do if elected president, some stories and poems. My only complaint is that some parts are extremely hard to read. Otherwise, this is a fine, not-so-typical 'zine to get a hold of.

Married Punks #4: U-Direct Review

This review originally appeared sometime in 1995 in Married Punks #4. Transcribed as it first appeared.

U-Direct #2 & 3

U-Direct is a 'zine that covers the underground presses. While it is by no means the definitive guide, it is fairly thorough in its coverage of underground fiction and poetry. This combination of two issues has info on the Underground Press Conference, columns on artistic freedoms, etc., reviews and ads. I would recommend this if you're reading needs go beyond punk 'zines and mainstream fiction.
