Continuing punk-centric musings mostly centered around New Paltz, N.Y. Having not seen the first two issues, I feel like I missed something that was happening on the supposed continued e-mail adventures of Dave Grohl, but I did love the collage of college radio station review stickers (“Is This Love?” (’cause it sure ain’t music)). There was also a clutch of album reviews and a really glowing write up of the Screaming Females recent live shows and album, which makes me want to check them out again, as I haven’t done a very good job of keeping up with the band the last few years. The capper of the whole zine is an extensive review of the CBGB film from 2013, that A.) reminded me that that was a thing that happened, and B.) perversely made me want to see the film now. The hook to this issue of the zine though is the random Greg Ginn “commentary” popping up every few pages like an extremely SST-centric version of Sergio Aragonés margin doodles. –Adrian Salas (John Tapper, 12 Pinecrest Rd., New Paltz, NY, 12561, gamutt.storenvy.com)
