THE RISE OF TERMINAL BOREDOM.....
I’ve been meaning to take a stab at capturing the je ne sais quoi
of modern 21st century garage punk as I see it from my jaded & snooty perch, but now I don’t have to, as there’s a strong online ‘zine that’s done it for me – and by extension, for you. Trickknee
, who’s posted a few comments here and there on this site, left his calling card on the Flesh Eaters post below and I totally took the bait. His site is called TERMINAL BOREDOM
, after the Crime
bootleg of the same name, and it’s probably the best, most enthusiastic representation of this decade’s loud-hard-raw garagedom outside of the Horizontal Action
bricks & mortar fanzine. The second “issue” might read like an In The Red tribute collection to some, but don’t let that stop ya. It contains pieces on ITR’s Larry Hardy
, THE PONYS
, THE FUSE!
and related stagewreckers, as well as a mess of informed & snotty reviews (guys, the Crisco jokes are so
1983 Tesco Vee). And get this, apparently some people still buy 7” singles! Wild. Check it out here
