RUM LAD, #8: £1.50, 5½” x 7”, copied, 10 pgs.

In this compact zine, we’re served up two interviews. The first interview is with Andy Morgan, a musician from the United Kingdom who’s been in several bands, including the well-known Army Of Flying Robots. He talks about his craft—constructing songs, memorable moments in bands, and parenthood. The second interview is with Alex Wrekk, author of the ongoing zineBrainscan, organizer of Portland Zine Symposium, and creator of the bookStolen Sharpie Revolution. Alex talks about living in Portland, witchcraft, and her daily goings-on, all while teasing the interviewer—who happens to be one of her best friends. I really enjoyed the author’s illustrations of the interviewees and the shortness of the interviews helped keep my attention. Short and sweet.–Tricia (Rum Lad, [email protected], stevelarder.co.uk)
