BUS STOP PRESS NEWSLETTER #14, free, 8” x 11”, copied, 1 pg.

Very brief, charming newsletter that shares basic info about new releases and updates on the punk/anarchist scene near Marseilles, France. Also includes some philosophical, vaguely paranoid ideas about how the COVID lockdowns could shape the counterculture for the worse. As someone with no connection to the Marseille scene (I’m sitting in a house in upstate N.Y., U.S.A.), all of this is new and intriguing. Mostly I just love the idea of a bus stop pamphlet as a way to share radical punk news. I’ll be checking out the Camarada/Cicadae split tape and the benefit compilation for La Salle Gueule. –Matt Werts (busstoppress.bandcamp.com)
