DUDES MAGAZINE # 17: $5, 8 ½” x 11”, printed, 93 pgs.

I suppose a review about a magazine that is almost entirely devoted to the merits of drinking heavily should be written while drinking, so… cheers. The mag is the brainchild of one Nighthawk, who also happens to do most of the contributing in this issue (twenty-two articles.) Highlights include a column about dicking around in Canada, a broke-ass trek to Fest 9, a ten-day binge of nothing but pizza, shit jobs with shit people, and even some political commentary (I know, right?). All this, plus they somehow managed to conduct interviews with the Dopamines, Holy Shit!, and In Defence. I totally get this kind of dick and fart humor, but let’s just say that if you find the Dwarves’ Blood, Guts, and Pussy album offensive, you will hate this rag. For the rest of you, however, cash in your empties and send these idiots five bucks for a copy. Act now and you’ll also get a CD-R featuring Tiltwheel, The Measure [SA], and In Defence with a picture of a dick drawn on it. (3872-A Connecticut St., Saint Louis, MI63116)
