Yass! This was posted earlier today and the new issue of CRKO Fanzine is printed, packed and being mailed out as of this writing. I’m not too sure if you still can reserve your copy via email, but just in case go visit them on Blogspot and get all the info you need. The first 100 copies comes with a bonus flexi disc and it’s crammed with interviews with Mickey Leigh (talking about Joey Ramone), Nikki Corvette, my mammoth interview with Australian musician The Jimmy C, and the second installment of the huge Canadian special! Only 8 Euros, but that does not include postage.
Anyway, this looks great! And the guys that spent all afternoon/evening in Germany packing it says the sleeve art is just gorgeous. I’m excited as hell and looking forward to receiving my copy some time next week!
Well, editor-in-chief Bernd Fischer just posted this on CRKO Fanzine‘s official page on Facebook as well as the blog; Pre-orders are now accepted for this 88 page beast crammed with columns, interviews and reviews (just like me Bernd likes his info beefy). It comes with a free 7″ EP with Canadian outfit Strange Attractor courtesy P.Trash Records, but if you pre-order you also receive a free flexi-disc with Swiss madman Reverend Beatman as an added bonus. Be quick though, ’cause that only applies for the first 100 copies and Friday is shipping day.
More info about the issue and how to order can be found via the blog here.

Well, as this was just posted on CRKO Fanzine‘s official page on Facebook, I’m guessing the new issue will hit the streets any time soon now. Featuring among other things the debut of my TapeMix – Best of Bandcamp column plus a beefy interview I made with The Jimmy C - wrapped in a nice cover artwork made by yours truly. From what I understand from editor-in-chief Bernd Fischer this is actually a super beefy double issue, so there’s gonna be tons of nice articles and interviews – something I’m looking forward to sink my teeth into.
I’m not too sure exactly where you’ll be able to get a copy, but I make sure to look that up once it’s time to announce its release.

Well, the Swedish Mail brought me a nice lil’ gift yesterday: The CRKO Fanzine t-shirt! Yes, these cotton pieces of high fashion was printed in a limited edition and sent out to the staff the last couple of weeks and I gotta admit mine fits me like a glove. Or, uh, t-shirt I guess. Took a picture of it and sent it off to Editor-in-Chief Bernd Fischer yesterday as a thank-you note and today I find myself being the poster boy for it on their Facebook:
Today’s handsome dude: Magnus (of The Cymatics) from Sweden! Thanx man! Still some shirt-sizes left for all those who don’t have it! Write if you want one…
These look great and if you want one drop ‘em a line here. Speaking of the lifestyles and hardships of us male models; Here’s the Undertones‘ classic:
Well, I was sick as a dog last week. Started off late on Sunday evening with me feeling kinda sluggish but I sure as hell wasn’t expecting to wake up early Monday morning looking (and feeling) like something out of Lucio Fulci‘s Zombie Flesh Eaters. I’m better now but still can’t help feeling I missed out on a week’s work. Call me a workaholic.
A bit of news. My debut column TapeMix – Best of Bandcamp and a beefy interview I did with Jamie Coghill (aka The Jimmy C) has been sent off to the editor at CRKO after I spent the weekend editing it. I’m excited about this and am really looking forward to help spreading the word of cool, unknown music. The site is still up and running so check it out here.
And finally, my fave musical project ever – The Norliss Tapes – has a site up and running on Bandcamp! Our first two releases A Little Bit Tipsy and A Trip to the Moon! are available now with a third entitled Bad Robot EP coming soon-ish (got a little bit of tweaking left to do!) Listen to the sample track Zero Gravity Moonstomp below and check out the rest of our stuff here. ‘Til next time.
