Married Punks #4: Want Review

Originally appeared in Married Punks #4, published in 1995. Review appears as it was published.

Want #2

A good issue with the same pages-stapled-together effect of the last one. This has got some columns, thoughts on sexuality and other things, and a spattering of reviews. The essay on drugs was too much; giving patients the wrong medicine so you can have your morphine fix is not too cool. The guy who wrote it, Jerry Duke, deserves to be slapped around if this was true.

Married Punks #4: Vigilance Freezine Review

Originally appeared in Married Punks #4, which came out in 1995 (roughly). This is transcribed as it first appeared.

Vigilance Freezine #4/Moo Cow #14

This issue of Vigilance starts out good with a banner reading "Alternative is A Fashion/Punk is a Community." Great line. (Redding should take note.) Then we get reviews and columns. This is the strong suit in this issue; the columns. XLittle BoyX, a Sxe'r (duh!), has a killer column about being stabbed with a hypodermic needle at a Ministry show. He gets injected with heroin, and some of the junkie's blood. You have to read the rest to find out about his trips to the hospital. The other columns are good too, but this, and the column on scene dependancy, take the cake. On the Moo Cow side there are some good reviews and a good column on selling out in the punk scene. This is definitely better than the last issue.
