Did Dave Brushback usher in the Golden Age of New England Microzines? We’ll have to wait for the call from scene vets in the inevitable documentary (complete with Ian MacKaye saying that the GANEM was “insane”). Until then, feast yr. eyes on the newest issue of Dave’s Freak No-Hitter, which remains a deeply personal and wildly fun one-pager. He interviews the shambling and grandiose Montana band Mordecai and reviews a bunch of records (and zines!) I had never heard of previously. It bears repeating that part of the fun of this one is tracking down all the weird stuff reviewed herein—I always learn something. So will you. –Michael T. Fournier ([email protected])
