VINYLDYKE #3, free, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 44 pgs.

Jul 20, 2021

“DIY rock journalism from Berlin’s underground” pretty much encapsulates what Vinyldyke zine is all about. Issue 3 of the German zine (which is in English) is full of how-tos: shooting your own music video, recording an album, writing a song, and so forth. One feature in this issue that I found particularly enjoyable is “What Is Your Rock N Roll Dream?” in which musicians Maxine Gillon (singer/songwriter), Estella Adeyeri (Big Joanie), and Adriessa Souza (Anti-Corpos, Eat My Pear) are asked this question, and their answers are wide-ranging and insightful. And I very much got into Alysia Basluke’s “L7 Fan Story.” As a longtime fan of grunge-era rockers L7, reading Basluke’s story felt like getting a relishable inside scoop on a favorite band, a story shared between fans. Also in this issue of Vinyldyke: Passionless Pointless tour diary, coverage of the Grrrl-Noisy female/queer music scene, profile of Fight Like a Grrrl Booking, album and zine reviews, and more.  –Gina Murrell (Evelyn B., [email protected])
