Chiara's Groups



My zines are messy; full of drawings and writing, and nothing too deep. Cut & paste style, sometimes a typewriter is involved.  I like trading for zines, mix CDs , long letters etc.

My music-babble filled perzine (or personal fanzine?)

Quarter size, 24 pages, October 2010.

#4: Small guide to music genres- includes pages on cow punk, swamp rock, twee/indiepop etc., as well as a small recommendation guide.
Quarter size, 16 pages, early 2011.

#6: Hottest 10 Australian Albums- a response to the recent Triple J (national radio station) poll of 'Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time'. Features my own list of 'top 10 Aus. albums' , including bands such as The Saints, Radio Birdman, You Am I, The Meanies, Love Outside Andromeda etc.. 
1/3 size (square), 24 pages plus fold-out list/poster, June 2011.

Quarter size, 16 pages, February 2012.

#8: Thoughts on Wild Flag, Matt Berry's prog-folk album, consuming music, and a rant on phones/cameras at gigs. 
Quarter size, 16 pages, May 2012.

#9: The joys of shouting into a microphone while playing power chords (or, reflecting on my first ever gig), why I like Mary Timony + music-map (fold out), Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks gig review (sorta), etc.

Outshine the Sun and Reasons to be Cheerful. Those look like fun reads. In return I'll write you a long, awesome letter, and when I finish my newest zine I'll send that along as well. :]

We haven't formally met - I'm Skunk. Hello.
