SWINGKID FANZINE, THE #5, Free printable PDF, 5½” x 8½”, full color glossy, 80 pgs.

Aug 16, 2017

The Swingkid Fanzine is one cool read! It’s a glossy, content-packed zine covering mostly music. If you ever were looking for punk, metal, or alternative bands across the globe, this is a good resource to turn to. The author manages to interview bands from locations such as Suriname, Kuwait, Hungary, Mexico, Morocco—honestly too many to count. There’s also a mix CD included of bands that are in the issue! On top of the interviews, there’s a really powerful multi-person interview with refugees who have come to Germany (which I believe is the author’s location?), their reasons why they left their own country, and why specifically did they want to come to Germany. There’s also a DIY-themed crossword and stickers included in the issue. If you’re interested, the zinester offers a free PDF if you email them! –Tricia Ramos (The Swingkid Fanzine, [email protected])
