Liz (who works at the venerable and crucial Quimby’s, in Chicago) sings a capella versions of punk songs in the Blue Ribbon Glee Club. The first installment of this zine was about that club’s exploits; this one broadens its scope a bit. In addition to profiles of BRGC members and an article on England’s similarly inclined Hackney Secular Singers, Liz includes song-specific essays written as part of the club’s singing/reading series (examples include X’s “The World’s a Mess, It’s in My Kiss” and the db’s “Black and White”). Friendly and well-conceived throughout, despite an admittedly niche topic. But we all know niches make for the most compelling reading, right? Right! A complete joy. –Michael T. Fournier (Liz Mason, PO Box 477553, Chicago, IL 60647)
