RIPPLE ROCK #1: $8 ppd., 6” x 8”, copied with 3-D cover, 76pgs.

To celebrate the first year of Jesse’s radio show (called Ripple Rock), he decided to transcribe ten of the twenty-five interviews he conducted and release them as a big ol’ pretty-looking zine. The end product is awesome because it contains well-conducted interviews with people I actually care about, like Nardwuar, Red Dons, Eric Oblivian, Mike Watt, and more. Plus while the design is all cut and paste, it reads very clearly. And to top all that off, the cover is in 3-D, and every issue comes with a pair of 3-D glasses, which I can always use another pair of. You can never find them when you need them. My only complaint is that some of the interviews are transcribed too literally. Editing out all the filler words would definitely improve the flow of the conversations. That aside, this is without a doubt, my new favorite zine made by a Canadian living in Finland. –Daryl (Jesse Gehlen, Koulukatu17815, 80100Joensuu, Finland / [email protected])
