Zines From The 80s and 90s
5 Replies

I'm new here, though not to zines, and I'm wondering if there's an index of old zines here?  I published quite alot in the 80s and 90s and still have many of the zines that were sent to me.  I'd love…Continue

"Like Jenna and Alex said, the web's biggest index and historical record of zine titles is ZineWiki. But it's far from complete, so list all your old zines on it if they aren't there yet!"

"True enough, but time always puts a patina on our memories.  There was acrimony, but there was communication.  That was the most important part of the whole scene, I believe. "

"Actually I remember quite a bit of acrimony back in the 80's & 90's diatrabes, rants, and "debates", but yes, people were at least talking to each other, and it was more that the usual "fuck you asshole!" that it…"

Zines and Diversity of Thought

What I remember most fondly about the heyday of zines (pre-internet) was the great diversity of thought coupled with a lack of hatred.  I remember opening my first copy of FF5 and being agog at all the weird and freaky stuff.  I was immediately in love.  I ran an underground Christian music and culture zine and often took strong positions on moral subjects. People would respond, many disagreeing most strongly, but the discussions were just that, discussions.  Through the medium of print and the…See More

"My zines evolved onalmost a per issue basis.  I went from half-fold to full sheet, started as a Christian music zine which morphed into a political/underground art zine and ended up as a zine that reviewed other zines.  I loved the…"

durand, not sure if you got my previous message. I collect zines and have a room dedicated to them (my office). Its hard getting a hold of these kind of things, not a lot of people held on to them. I was also involved in the christian underground scene in the mid-late 90's and published a death metal zine called Disentombed that ran six issues. Anyway, I am very interested in the late 80's, early 90's zine scene and would be interested in buying zines from you. my email is 

buddypng@hotmail.com    thanks!
