Helou Kaet & Son n10-(Fanzine-Joukkomurha Products-Finland-199?)

Very cool fanzine edited and distributed by Jupe Luoma,who was into mail art,zines making and running the label Joukkormurha Tapes and  the sublabel JM Tapes.

It is a really nice zine and it is a pity I can only read half of it as I am not finnish literate.
