Zines and me: a brief history

I'm from Sydney, Australia, now living in New York City. A proud former key-holder to PO Box 4, Sydney's Least Exclusive Zine Address (TM). Zines I have made include: Drift, Secret Archives of the Recent Past, Aftermaths and most recently Horace Andy & The Spanish Owls, with Emma. Emma and I also created a crazy zine/postal art monster project thing in 2005/6 called Post No Bills. We got to be such regulars at Kinkos that the staff were asking us for help with the copiers. It was launched with fanfare, party games and cake at the National Young Writers' Festival, Newcastle, 2006. Copies of my zines are sometimes available through Flying Machine distro, at PO Box 4.

I believe that typewriters, turntables, tea, appropriation and the Dewey Decimal System are the zinester's best friends. All my other best friends have been made through making zines. It's true.

(pssst. I also blog.)
