Hit the Decks: A This & That Tapes Fanzine of Music, Art, & Cassette Culture
$ 8.00

Looking exactly like a zine you might pick up at a punk show in the mid-'90s, Hit the Decks is a whole lot of fun. There's Katie Haegele's partial tribute to Headbanger's Ball, a discussion about mixtapes by Sommer from the Mixtape Museum, and a casual stroll through VHS collecting by Joshua James Amberson.

There's interviews with Murder City Devils frontman Spencer Moody, whiskey folk hero lauren.napier, and Dead Milkmen co-founder Joe Jack Talcum.

There's comics from Jay McQuirns, collage art from lauren.napier, a new painted illustration from Spencer Moody, intimacy from little stray & LJ Brubaker, Neal Langford's lo-fi photography, a page of recipes from Joe Jack Talcum, a photo essay by Jess Moncrief about seeing Lee Ving perform in a tattoo shop, and Craig Wenner on how to put on a DIY show.

30 pages, full magazine-size.
