The bulk of this scrappy little zine consists of reviews of tapes, records, and zines that the author is very stoked on. Genres range from folk to pop punk to hardcore—this person has a lot to be pumped about and won’t hold back from letting you know. The reviews are rounded out with some rambling accounts of the author’s attempts to fix a bike and a tape deck, along with some mad libs and brief musings on the radness of all-ages shows. There’s not a lot of organization to speak of, and no one’s ever gonna call this the prettiest or most cohesive zine at the ball, but it has its own haphazard charm. –Indiana Laub (Gonk Publishing, 2700 White Ave. #3, Chico, CA95973)
