Dynamite Hemorrhage #5
*** LATEST ISSUE! ***
Dynamite Hemorrhage #5 is a 44-page, "digest-sized" music fanzine devoted to sub-underground music from the last five decades. Like Issue #4, this one's a smaller, A5-sized thing with no advertisements. It features:
- A deep overview of 1990s outsider label MAJORA RECORDS, featuring not one but two interviews with label founder Nick Schultz. Majora was a singularly unique record label that released strange musical transmissions from around the globe, including the bulk of the Sun City Girls' work in the 90s, along with avant-folk, noise and fractured DIY from the likes of Dadamah, Leslie Q, Skullflower, Paris 1942, Eddy Detroit and others.
- MAXINE FUNKE, a New Zealand-based solo artist who's made some of the most transcendent, gentle, low- fidelity, super-minimal strum & voice recordings of the last decade. We'd never seen an interview of her anywhere before, and were happy to corral her for a talk on the eve of the release of her third album.
- "PARALLEL WORLD PUNK-ERA 45s". What if we just invented a ten-best list of punk-era 45rpm singles that never existed, but should have? This is a description of those ten records, and why each made the list.
- Brief interview with the defunct 2011-2013 Brighton, England trio EDIBLE ARRANGEMENTS, my favorite Bandcamp discovery of all time. Methodically minimal, slow-grinding, spooky, church organ-driven DIY postpunk. See what happens when we try to get them to reunite.
- HEMORRHAGE IN DUB column on recent finds & reissues from the 1970s golden era of Jamaican dub
- 25 record reviews
