Apr 19, 2016

At some point last summer, I must’ve fallen into a coma long enough to miss an Australian visitor named Justin, who came to Los Angeles and made his presence well known. All of a sudden, many of my friends were talking about Justin and talking about him as if he had arrived in a UFO or started a new, life-changing cult. While I missed out on a great opportunity to meet a now-legendary bloke, I did manage to snatch up one of his zines: Wasted Opportunities #9. It was great! Now here is another issue and, like the legend of Justin, it does not disappoint. There is a lengthy interview with Night Birds, who I consider to be the best band in America, and an article on the crossover between Star Trek and punk, two of Justin’s self-professed loves. I may never meet the man, the myth, the legend from down under, but I love the work he does in Wasted Opportunities. –Jon Mule (GPO Box 2712, Brisbane, QLD, Australia 4001)
