MAXIMUM TREMOLO #3, with cassette: 4½” x 5½”, copied, 6 pgs.

Maximum Tremolo is a zine dedicated to surf. This time they forego the usual articles, interviews, and crate-digging reviews and just give you a tape called A History of Surf—with a six-page, half-size zine accompaniment serving as some very informative liner notes. Together it tells the story of surf: its origin in Southern California; its competition with the British Invasion, and exportation to Japan and other parts of the world after being dwarfed by The Beatles; its death in the ‘70s and revival with the punks in the ‘80s. There’s some awesome, overlooked surf on here from Russia, Turkey, Japan, and all over. A kickass mix with a lot of heart and maximum tremolo. –Craven Rock (Maximum Tremolo, PO Box 467, Buffalo, NY 14226, [email protected])
