TNS PUNK & SKA FANZINE #12: offset, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, 32 pgs.

TNS is published by Manchester ska/punk label That’s Not Skanking. They cover their scene with an infectious passion, smashing the stereotype of ska fans as out-of-step, apolitical dorks. Along with the standard label news, scene reports, interviews and reviews, there are thoughtful articles on Arab Spring and squatting. This is Operation Ivy, not Mustard Plug. –Chris Terry (17 Heywood Rd., Prestwich, Manchester M25 1FB, United Kingdom)
