BRUTALIST SHIMMY #1: £2.90, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 24 pgs.

A guy from The Briggs doing a zine that consists of various online pieces gathered together. Record reviews, a pretty impressive review / “taxonomy” of songs in which the Ramones are referenced, and a reader-submitted Q and A about what Joe considers punk or not, done very tongue in cheek. Layout’s reasonably snappy with plenty of graphics, though that font is dangerously close to Courier, if you ask me. Pretty fun. –Keith Rosson (J. Briggs, 23A Junction Rd., Oxford, OX4 ZNT, UK)
