JANDEK review by SUPERDOPE contributor TOM LAX
That’s a nice fuckin’ record review.
If we compiled a zine of Tom Lax fuckin’ record reviews from Siltbreeze, Forced Exposure Superdope, Opprobrium, Wind-Up Butter Cow, etc, would you buy it? We would. Of course, we would’ve put it out so we would not need to buy it. That would be silly. But you, would you?
This fanzine, SUPERDOPE #8, is one that I put out in 1998, and one of which I still have multiple copies left. I’m selling if you’re buying.
It’s a digest-sized ‘zine with a long piece on my then-favorite 45rpm singles, each individually reviewed and explained. You can get a sense from the cover of what kind of music we’re talking about here. The magazine also has reviews of then-au courant rocknroll acts as well.
Only $3 to US residents ($4 Canada, $7 rest of world), via Paypal, to jayhinman(at)hotmail(dotcom). Make sure you provide your address to me there and I’ll wing one out to you right away.
This is an interview I did via mail with Japanese psychedelic speed freaks HIGH RISE back in 1993. Definitely one of the great lost-in-translation interviews I’ve ever seen, all modesty aside. All I did was ask the tough questions.
Fantastic band, too, if you’ve never heard their late 80s/early 90s material. Interview taken from SUPERDOPE fanzine #6, 1993.
