DEEP FRIED ZINE MPLS, $1, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 16 pgs.

Okay, first of all, fast food is unhealthy and terrible for your body and mind. No! Second, zines giving free advertising to terrible fast food companies… also a big no-no. No! There. Now that we got that out of the way, I’m going to say, for the discerning reader there’s quite a bit of fun to be had in this goofy, fast food-celebrating zine. In this zine, you’ll learn more than you ever need to know about Taco Bell’s Choco Taco and Jack In The Box’s ‘93 E. Coli epidemic. They use Mountain Dew spin-offs like Pitch Black and White Out as metaphor for deconstructing the politics of the Trump Administration. They also have a bone to pick with new school fast food and its urge to abbreviate everything, like DQ, et al. Deep Fried has ideas, man. Following in the tradition of the Ramones and Sloppy Seconds, Deep Fried reminds us of the trash culture-glorifying roots of punk rock. Somehow, with brains foggy from corn syrup, MSG, and lack of nutrition, they put together this zine as an outlet for those vices and it’s a good time. But you didn’t hear it from me. –Craven Rock (Deep Fried Zine MPLS, 2901 Yosemite Avenue South, St. Louis Park, MN 55426, videophobia222@hotmail.com)
