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.

“The editor was far too wasted to come to grips with these quality releases - you simply must own them.”

“I think we’ve really hit upon a novel idea: a publication about independent rock bands, with reviews and interviews and the like…”

FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEWS WISHES JAY HINMAN A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY!

  • Pictured: Earlier version of Jay (when he presumably loved the Dead C) nicked from Flickr.   
  • We love to laugh out loud (who doesn’t) and so it was upon reading the very first verbiage from Jay Hinman way back in 1990.
  • Thanks Jay for the inspiration and support!
