How I spent my summer vacation! Brainscan #25.5! Copy Scams, a zine band!

Brainscan #25.5
At the IPRC on July 11, 2010 the Portland Zine Symposium sponsored a 24 hour zine challenge. A 24 hour zine challenge is when you make a zine in
24 hours.

Well, this is the zine I made that night. You are not supposed to have
any idea what you will put in your zine before you start so I had no
idea what would come out of this. What did come out of those 24 hours,
besides sleep deprivation delirium, was some photocopier artwork and
stories about all the post boxes I have ever had. The count is 4 and
each was a distinct time in my life that I wrote about including the
secret admirer who wrote love notes to my boyfriend I shared the post
box with and stories about long lost penpals.

32 pages 1/8th legal with black covers hand stamped in silver.

Also, I started a zine band!

The band equivalent of a 24 hour zine!

Steve of Rum Lad zine came to Portland from the UK for awhile and had
the idea to start a band. I said "ok" and we got our housemates Paul and
Marc to join in the fun! In 3 weeks we wrote 4 songs, practiced,
recorded, and played a show that closed the 2010 Portland Zine

What resulted was this 6 track demo of 4 lo-fi pop-punk songs all about
zines! We have an obligatory intro song filled with excuses as to why
the band is so late, another song reads like a cliche zine article full
of things we like and hate, a song about stealing photocopies, and a
song about the 24 hour zine challenge.

Cassette tape only! Up the analog zine punx! Comes with a 16 page 1/8 sized zine with lyrics and silly drawings.

The Copy Scams are:
Alex Wrekk - wordy stuff (Brainscan zine and Stolen Sharpie revolution)
Steve Larder begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting - guitar stuffs (Rum Lad)
Marc Parker - Bassy things (Zine Thug)
Paul Burke - drummy and screamy goodness (Lunchroom)
