MONGREL ZINE #10: $6, 7” x 8.5”, Photocopied, 112 pgs.

Thick garage rock zine from Canada, comprised mostly of interviews with bands, plus indie cartoonist Colin Upton. Some of it is in French, and most of these bands don’t have much to say. Luckily there are plenty of photos of guys in sunglasses and striped T-shirts and a killer twenty-five track comp CD of the featured bands. Things get a lot cooler once the music is given the chance to speak for itself. The varying degrees of savagery and catchiness make for a sweet collection of music. –CT Terry (mongrelzine.ca)
