PLASTIQUE POP #7: $2, 7” x 7”, 38 pgs.

Nov 20, 2012

This issue features interviews with artists Jason Potter and Ben Lyon, and bands The Vignettes and Ramma Lamma. There is also an interview with the head of Big Action Records and two short stories. The layout is quality but the interviews, while well-done, weren’t of interest to me since I didn’t know who these individuals or bands were. A good interview should be able to draw a reader in, even if they’re not interested in the interviewee. While the line of questions was far better than most zine interviews, I still didn’t feel intrigued by the people being interviewed. However, I enjoyed Adam Widener’s short story, but wish it had a better ending, as it seemed a bit abrupt. I suppose if you’re a fan of any of the aforementioned artists or bands, though, this might be worth checking out. -Kurt Morris (1723 S. 1st St., Milwaukee, WI53204, [email protected])
