NEW WAVE CHICKEN #3, $5, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 48 pgs.

New Wave Chicken reminds me of how great zines can be. The passion that is put into this zine is obvious on every page. This isn’t a graphic design masterpiece; the strength and focus is in the writing. This installment is loosely the surf issue, with articles on the music of Agent Orange, as well as an interview with Mike Palm, tales of vandalism, cock fighting, an interview with Atom Ellis who played with Link Wray, The Cars, and the Tubes, and one interview pertaining to chicken farming with Rob “The Baron” Miller from Amebix (the editor, Steve Hart, is a chicken farmer as well). There are a lot of interesting pieces in between the previously mentioned that are worth your time as well. A great zine, like a great record, makes you believe in what is going on, and inspires you to get involved. New Wave Chicken does just that.
