DEEP FRIED ZINE MPLS #17, $1, 8½” x 11”, copied, 20 pgs.

This is a unique zine with a focus on fast food—both worldwide but also in Minneapolis. It’s a mish-mash of short articles, photos, and art. One piece covers the sale of a paper plate from a pizza joint used by Kurt Cobain to write a Nirvana set list. Another recalls when Willie Nelson was in a Taco Bell commercial. There are also interviews with artist Jason Steady and the band Lazear. Both interviews relate back to fast food, though. The zine is a quick, weird read. If you’re really into odd fast food stories, then this is the zine for you. For a buck, you can’t beat it. –Kurt Morris (2901 Yosemite Ave. S., St. Louis Park, MN 55416)
