We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Caroline Azar is a zine editor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and the featured article on ZineWiki this month!

Caroline's first zine, released in the 1980's, was Hide, a multi media publication released in both print and audio cassette format. The zine and cassette featured music that ranged from punk to experimental compositions in both electronic and other forms. Five issues were released.

Her next zine was Double Bill, a collaboration between editors Jena von Brücker, Johnny Noxzema, Rex, and G.B. Jones. Double Bill was published from 1991 till 2001, and five issues were released. The zine was based on the notion that actor Bill Conrad (of tv and movie fame) was at war with author Bill Burroughs (the beat writer of Naked Lunch and other novels) and was termed a 'hate-zine', as opposed to 'fanzine'. The editors of Double Bill collectively contributed to Girl Germs and the zine was featured in The Village Voice.

Caroline Azar was also the lead singer and keyboardist for the band Fifth Column...
