SOMETHING FOR NOTHING, two stamps, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 28 pgs.

Something for Nothing opens with a short meditation on the “balance between faith and art” (that is, what business a Christian has in punk, and his feelings about that business), and the rest of it is reviews, as seems to be the SFN M.O. I like the longform review style, digging into each band’s discography regardless of chronological relevance or even whether or not the band at hand is even together. This guy knows his stuff; that much is clear. No beverage reviews this time, so if that’s what you were hangin’ on for, this issue isn’t for you. However, if you dig One Blood, The Yah Mos, or Econochrist, or if you dig none of these bands but want and in-depth lowdown on their work, it is. –jimmy cooper (Something For Nothing, PO Box 226, Massillon, OH 44648, [email protected])
