JERK STORE #10: $?, 5 ½” x 8”, 32 pgs.

Double digits issue for this Australian fanzine, which should have been titled the “California Issue” of Jerk Store. This issue documents their trip to California (and a little Nevada) for Awesome Fest 5, as well as interviews with OrangeCounty’s It’s Alive Records and Riverside’s Turkish Techno. As you can always expect from this zine, pure fan love for bands and labels they’re totally stoked on. Plus a consistently well-written record review section, where all the reviews are done by Alex, Jerk Store head honcho. In the States, you can get copies from It’s Alive, so no complaining about international shipping. –Daryl (PO Box 284, Maylands, WA 6931, Australia)
