LOST TAPES The Signal

LOST TAPES series. (Some of my lost, then found, recordings from the eighties and nineties in all genres ). This time we feature the instrumental:


"THE SIGNAL" .


Lots of rhythm in this 2+ minute instrumental.


When I'm just playing my Pet Dog Guitar, it's pretty hard to spotlight just the rhythm. That's what…

The website is http://gimmebrainsdistro.tumblr.com



I am currently not looking for submissions and looking to clear the… Continue

Hi Everyone

Just a quick blog to say I've just finished my final exam (yay!) and will be working on producing zines and catching up on penpal letters over summer :) Again, I'd like to say sorry, yet again for being so late and everything (plus I deleted the posts I think are whiny). I'll fix stuff up and send as soon as possible.

Love

listen to our zine band: The Copy Scams

The Copy Scams are a the band equivalent to a 24 hour zine!





Steve was visiting Portland from the UK and thought it might be fun to start a band while he was in the US. While he was in Portland he lived in a closet in the basement of the Spiral

house and tricked housemates Alex, paul and Marc to form a band in three

weeks before the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium.





In those three weeks they wrote, practiced, and recorded…

Tim Scannell, R.I.P.

I'm sorry to have inform everybody that Tim Scannell died on September 24, after a 9-year battle with cancer. A family member e-mailed me today about it.

Tim initiated a trade with me and we traded a few times afterward. Behind his often spontaneous and candid comments, and eccentric style of expression, there was a kind person. I didn't know him well, but was glad to known him as papernet pal.

Tim's address should be easy to find on this site. Some of you may…

Call for Submissions: SUPERSTITIONS

With Halloween having just passed I began thinking about superstitions and the silly things people do for fortune and good luck.

I also found myself wondering how many other people out in the world make a wish at this time? So in thinking of these questions it stirred the creative parts

of my brain into thinking, "I should dedicate a zine…
