GAD! #10, Free or trade, 8½” x 11”, copied, 25 pgs.

This is Gadsden Alabama’s own punk zine. Open to any submissions—be it art, music, photos, whatever. The contents are mostly reviews of punk, metal, and hardcore records and demos, but it also includes interviews. This issue in particular features an interview with members of +44 (remember that band that the guys from Blink 182 did after Blink 182?), director Chuck Hartsell, and Chuck Mosley from Faith No More. The most useful part of the zine, in my opinion, was the last two pages—an “Alabama Underground Music Directory” which was a thorough list of Alabama bands (their name, the city they reside in, the genre of music, and contact info), and music venues. When I think of Alabama, I don’t tend to think “punk rock,” so this was a cool zine to read! –Tricia Ramos (GAD!, PO Box 394, Gadsden, AL, 35902)
