NOT LIKE YOU ISSUE 2: $?, 8½” x 11”, 40pgs.

This is what DIY punk is about. The amount of blood, sweat, and tears that went into the latest issue of Not Like You, is fucking astounding. Not Like You Issue Two is a full fanzine of new and old school skate punk, chock full of band interviews (Los Olvidados and The Faction), skate and band pics, record reviews, columns, rants, and just brim full of fucking punk, all printed on high quality matte stock. It’s well laid out and you can tell it’s a labor of love. Issue Two also comes with Intense Energy, a 7” comp of skater thrash ‘80s-style punk. With bands Huge, Loud Ones, Stale Phish, 97A, and Counterattack! Songs range from tough-as-nails hardcore thrash, to bratty, blow- out skater punk. And if that wasn’t shitastic enough for you, it even comes with stickers, like a lot of fucking stickers. Reminds me of broken bottles, warm 40s, too much damn cheap whisky, and hot summer nights watching boys ride their boards. –Camylle Reynolds (Not Like You Zine, 102 Richmond Ave. SE, Albuquerque, NM, 87106, notlikeyourecords.com)
