WITCH n5-(Fanzine-Poland-2004)

A very good fanzine all in the English language although printed in Poland by a collective of women into riot girls/feminism, anarchism and music.
In this issue very interesting articles about anti-abortion laws in various countries, protests, riot girls around the world, Annie Sprinkles guideline for sex in the 90s, Karen Finley multi-cultural artist, Fuck Finger (band), an interview at the band CTB and other messages about gender-related subjects.
All in all a very good fanzine with amazing articles and a positive attitude.
Enjoy it.

ZOVIET FRANCE-Assault And Mirage-(Red Rhino Recs-UK-1987)

Zoviet France is an idiosyncratic group of anonymous post-industrialists, dronologists, and pseudo-ethnomusicologists. Their investigations have taken them into fictional cultures where nothing is easily located and reality often slips into the hypnagogic. Having secluded themselves in Newcastle, England since their inception in 1980, Zoviet France has developed a radical relationship with the cheap technologies of old-fashioned tape recorders, homemade acoustic instruments, primitive looping and sampling devices, and basic dub trickery. From these machines, the collective has crafted a distinctly unique vocabulary of postindustrial sonic hypnosis. Just as Zoviet France's sound was alchemic reconfigurations of inexpensive technologies, their vinyl packaging literally covered their sounds with aluminium, roofing shingles and porcelain. This tape is crafted with 11 tracks of sublime noiz-ambient...it came out on the Red Rhine Records. Defunct UK indie label, founded in York in 1977 by Tony Kostrzewa. It had a Belgian division, Red Rhino Europe, that was distributed by Play It Again Sam [PIAS].
Red Rhino Records closed down with the financial collapse of Red Rhino Distribution in 1988.(all the info from Discogs)
Their actual webpage is here.
Enjoy it.

v.a.-Endorse It In Dorset Festival 2007-Vol 4-(Hogbitch-UK-2007)

This is a great cd compilation which came out to present the artists performing in the 2007 edition of this amazing festival held in the countryside in Dorset.
There is lots of cow-punk in it both as attitude and music.
Super cool bands, great fun: fast ska,crazy folk-ragga, country punk, deviated electronics, acid dub, cow-punk and a bit of pure rock make this cd-sampler a stunning document to explore and dance.
Hogbitch seems to be the personal label by Pronghorn: an UK band that promote themselves as The Kings of Cowpunk since 1992. 
To complete this post I am going to attach the video of the 'official' 2007 film from the Endorse it in Dorset Festival, total running time is 25 minutes, it has been split into 5 parts for Youtube, enjoy.

Those A3 Pages are a resume of the many art-works received by many mail artists from all over the world, the title of the project is kind of funny and annoying.
Enjoy it.

THEATRE OF HATE-Leeds Futuredaze Fest 26/9/81-(Not On Label-UK-1981)

I reckon Theatre Of Hate needs no introduction, they are, in fact, quite famous. Here a little note was taken from Discogs.
"Theatre of Hate is currently active featuring original members Kirk Brandon, Stan Stammers and John Lennard, and have recently released a new album, Kinshi. They are touring in March 2017 with Stiff Little Fingers.Current touring line up is Brandon, Stammers, Lennard, Chris Bell and Adrian Portas." 
This tape was probably recorded with a cheap tape machine yet the recording is pretty good and the cover sleeve reports the song-titles too.
Big thanx to Scott for passing me this precious pearl.
Enjoy it.

Mouldy Brain n9-(Fanzine-Italy-1994)

Number 9 of this Italian fanzine, I have already posted the number 10.

Mouldy Brain was focused on gothic subjects: nightmares, poetries, horror movies, monsters, and the like.
This issue is dedicated to the subject: serial killers.

With a nice graphic layout and quite a few interesting articles about various crazy murders, this zine is pretty cool.
In Italian language, only.
Enjoy it.
