Quick! you've just finished listening to a Besties album and while getting up you drop your crochect needle under your sofa! what are you going to do?!

Any law abiding citizen would know that the right thing to do is go to the Caramel Distro. This little website is a zine distro based in the UK that distributes contemporary indie pop fanzines. From A Fog of Ideas to Yay! Records Fanzine, this little distro has enough indie pop that will have you squeezing the buttons out of your teddy bear. Although many of the zines are sold out, there might be a chance that they have back issues (if you really need to you dammed capitalist) but if not there are still many more zines readily available to quell your sweet tooth for pop.
If you are asking yourself 'what the hell is indie pop anyway?" here's an example of what popkids would enjoy listening and watching:


Also, if you want to swap a mixtape or zine/mini comic with another popkid who might not be on here visit Indie Pages (a safe house for the mistreated popkid)

hey all! my name is katie and I'm from Saratoga Springs, NY. I write personal zines about playing music with my solo project/ sometimes full band "free cake for every creature". I am endlessly inspired by Calvin Johnson, Rose Melberg, Pam Berry, and POP MUSIC and would love to trade zines! send me a message, or email me at katie.p.bennett@gmail.com

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)
VIVA SMALL PRESS!

If anyone would submit their experiences with their favorite indie-pop band and the special effects that their music had on their life, I would be ecstatic to print it in the first edition of my zine, Teenage Squash. Any expression of your experience (narrative, poetry, visual art, etc) would be fantastic! Send to Wnnbaker@gmail.com. Thank you!

chickfactor print zine was one of the zines that got me into zines. It was so tasteful, and interviewed great musicians. great pictures, bands and interviews. It inspired me to make my first "real" fanzine called "le popstop", which sadly only had 2 issues. I am contemplating on making another one....we'll see. I went to a zombies concert a few years ago and had colin blustone sign my issue of chickfactor that had his interview in it.
