Writing a zine does have some huge bonuses. Yes, it takes up a LOT of my time but I also get to check out a lot of new music. Sadly there is of course a loads of stuff that comes into the zine to check out that is absolute rubbish, as you’d expect. And in the day and age of download links mostly, it’s rare to get a physical product. So when a bonus LP from Californian band The Thingz turns up, it’s already a good day!
The Thingz play a brand of surf garage punk and they do it really rather well.
