ASHCAN MAGAZINE #3: $2 US/$3 Intl, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 48 pgs.

A well-written Bay Area centered zine that was really enjoyable to read. This issue has interviews with artists S.A Richard and Scott Hove and a particularly inspiring article about Goteblud, a zine archive in San Francisco—I love the idea of a zine store. Ashcan covers a music scene that’s a little out of my expertise, but I did run to the internet to hear a few of the bands that were mentioned. The article on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is very well done and not only pointed out the flaws of BART, but offered solutions that could serve a wider portion of the population of the Bay Area. This is exceptionally well done for a third issue. –Steve Hart (Ashcan Magazine, 660 4th St. #420, SF, CA 94107)
