LUCINDA CONSOLE’S DOG DAYS: EUROPEAN TOUR DIARY 2010: £1.50, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 31 pgs.

Apr 08, 2011

I have to say right off the bat that I am a sucker for a good tour journal and this is just that. The zine documents one Mr. Hamish Adams experiences while on a European tour with his band Bangers. Kind of a glaring omission of sorts—I had to dig a bit through the diary to figure out exactly what band he was touring with. Minor quibble though, since, as I mentioned, it’s a pretty well done zine. You get a map with the tour stops noted and plenty of well-written commentary that is alternately funny, scary, sad, and crazy. If tour diaries are your thing, grab this. I always like noting that no matter how close the band, by the end of a tour they are all literally ready to kill each other. As an aside, I must note that Adams does seem to have a worrisome penchant for masturbating in some pretty weird places. I’ll just leave it at that! –Garrett Barnwell (Hamish Adams, Eastgate Barn, Landreyne, Coads Green, Cornwall, PL15 7LZ, UK)
