STRIKING DISTANCE #1: $2 or trade, 5 ½” x 4 ¼,” copied, 32 pgs.

Nov 24, 2010

This zine is created by the guy that used to do Kiss Off, which was around for quite a while and was pretty good. Not sure why Chris decided to go with a new name, but the differences end there, if I remember correctly. Much like its predecessor, Striking Distance has a nicely ragged aesthetic and is made up of short snippets culled from daily living. A bike accident, the quick shelf-lives of punk bands, those awkward moments when sobriety returns. It’s short, well written, a little abstract, and carries with it a pleasantly dark undertone I don’t remember Kiss Off having. Maybe the name change was a smart move after all. –Keith Rosson (Chris, 2-1729 Dufferin St., Toronto, ONM6E 3N9, Canada)
