DRUNK PUNK: GETTING SOBER WITHOUT GODS OR MASTERS, $5, 4¼” x 7”, copied, 54 pgs.

A true story of someone who drank like a fish and ended up murdering two people when he drove his car, while drunk, into the Dancing in the Streets AIDS fundraiser in 2012. The first half of this zine details his descent into alcoholism, and the bad choices that ensued, culminating with him looking at twenty years in prison. While he’s in prison he’s worked on getting his shit together, and came up with his own program for getting sober without resorting to religion. Punk rock nihilism has a steep price—it’s grim, dark, and ultimately sad. —Matt Average (Microcosm, 2752 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR 97227)
