SIVULLINEN Newsletter 5/97-(Sivullinen-Finland-1997)

Another astonishing issue of this amazing newsletter:
Sivullinen was a newsletter edited by Jouni Waarakangas in Helsinki(Finland)!!!Jouni was printing in it everything that was coming out from the underground world.This newsletter had no borders!!! 
We could find in its: news about zines, comics, tape labels, mail art, anarchist newspapers, poetries, short stories, experimental music, adverts for future compilation tapes, flyers of bands and their productions, mail art projects and whatever was related to all those subjects.
The graphics layout was messy and at the same time funny on one A6 size folded page or more pages.
It was printed 4 or 5 times at year in a print run of 1000 copies and it was free although a donation of stamps would have been always very appreciated.Jouni was into trading zines and cassette productions!!
Sivullinen was also a great fanzine created by Jouni and I have already posted few numbers as well as a couple of issues of this newsletter, you`ll find it all here.
Enjoy it.

Raiva N2 + Bestial Devastation "Ammunition" demo tape-(Fanzine + Cassette-Brazil-2016)

Second number of this Brazilian fanzine in English language, in this issue we find interviews to Verminoize, Tony Montana,Split Veins, Para Raio De Desgraca + Conducta Destructiva, Projecto Macabro and Terror Algum plus few music reviews and some nice pictures.
It came out with the cassette by Bestial Devastation, a Brasilian Duo playing a raw grindcore reminding me some stuff by Sore Throat with a kind of lo-fi recording sounding brutal and noisy.
I guess one of them is the mastermind of this fanzine.
Included a screen printed patch and an A6 poster too by Bestial Devastation.
Get it if you are into grind/crust and similar stuff.
Enjoy it.

SMERSH-Ordinary People-(Atlas King-USA-c60-1985)

Smersh was Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard. And from 1981 until 1994 they released far too many cassette tapes. They also contributed to far too many compilations throughout the known world. In the early eighties, they established a unique sound that is known and loved, combining cheap electronics and wild guitar sounds with distorted vocals. They were, in fact, a bit The Ramones of the industrial scene. But were they industrial? The Smersh sound had so many faces that it is next to impossible to categorize their music. Smersh recorded on most Monday evenings for a couple of hours. Each song was improvised over the course of the evening and then recorded. Once it was finished they never played it again. They never rehearsed, they couldn't read music, and they never played live.from their official webpage)
 Atlas King was the tape label of Smersh, founded by Chris Shepard and Mike Mangino in 1981. Until 1991 the label had no official name and the cat.no. looked like this: SC000, from 1991 it was officially Atlas King and the cat.no. looked like: AK000.
The last release with the SC prefix is SC032, the first with the AK prefix is AK033.
In 1994 the last tape was released.
The follow-up label is Mirandette Popular.
Enjoy it.
