ZAŠTO?-Issue 1-(Fanzine-Yugoslavia-1991)

Small zine created by Miland DuriĆ in Smeredevo (Yugoslavia) during the early 90s.I have already written about him when I have posted the double cassette called Victims.
In this first issue, Milan writes reviews and thoughts + few interviews to: It`s Not For Sale, Gottschee, Extreme Smoke, Motus Vita Est, KBO, Apatridi.
A very good tool to research the punk scene of ex Yugoslavia.
Only in Yugoslavian Language.
Enjoy it, if you can read this.

ORTOPEDIC QUARTET-Fratture-(Self Released-Italy-2013)

Great cd by this amazing band from Caserta (Southern Italy),  I have already posted their live tape recorded at Tien`A` Ment Squat in Naples on the 8th of June 1996.
They re-formed in 2013 just to re-record some of  their tracks in a proper studio recording.
Therefore in this totally DIY Cd-r,  you `ll find 4 tracks, from that tape, completely  re-recorded and 2 more tracks from the same tape re-elaborated in a studio!
Very good musicians playing a sort of crossover mixing Jazzcore with some personal rock and funky/swing passages.
As far as I know, they have not distributed this cd, there are only a few copies around given away as a gift to close friends.
For all the lovers of creative muzik.
Enjoy it.

ZINE WORLD-A Reader`s Guide To The Underground Press n17-(Self Released-Fanzine-USA-2002)

Zine World: A Reader's Guide to the Underground Press was an independent publication which covers independent and underground media. It was the largest review zine being published in the United States throughout the late 2000s. It reviewed mostly zines, but also books, comics, newsletters, videos and spoken word recordings. The material it covered was generally available directly from the publishers, and each review included ordering information and other specifics (such as whether or not the item is free to prisoners, or the publisher's trade policy). Its news section covered free speech issues, and other topics of interest to the independent publishing community. It also included a word of mouth section, with reports on distros and stores, zine libraries, other review zines, and publishing resources. It published columns by Karl Wenclas, Jeff Somers, Grant Schreiber, Christoph Meyer, Gianni Simone, and other prominent underground writers. It featured illustrations by Alan Lastufka, Sue Clancy, Violet Jones, Cole Johnson, Mike Twohig, and a wide variety of other indie artists.
The zine was launched as Zine World in 1996 by Doug Holland as a more opinionated alternative to Factsheet Five, but has continued publishing since its larger competitor's disappearance in 1998. In 1999, it changed its name to A Reader's Guide to the Underground Press, and began using both names in 2003. It was once widely decried (in its own letters section, on the Usenet group alt.zines, and elsewhere) for running gratuitously negative reviews (particularly from departed contributor Joe Gallo), but is now less controversial. It now publishes roughly three times a year. After Holland stepped down in 2000, Jerianne Thompson became editor/publisher and supervised the all-volunteer staff. The final issue, #31, was published in 2012.

TRIAL OF THE BOW-Rite Of Passage-(Release Entertainment-USA-1997)

Formed in late 1993 by Renato Gallina (percussion/vocals) and Matthew Skarajew (stringed instruments), Trial Of The Bow emerged from the city of Melbourne, Australia's heart and melting pot of all musical forms. While both members live and work in a metropolis, they strive to remove themselves and their listeners from this and transport them all to places exotic with their bared-down Eastern-inspired music.(from Discogs)
  Trial Of The Bow is an Ambient/Neo-Folk/World Music project of two members of Australian Doom/Death act Disembowelment. This has a rare depth and integrity seldom found in most "side-projects", which suggests that this is no mere flirtation with sounds. Influences from various traditions around the world, including Arabic and Celtic, are melded into a whole that strongly recalls Dead Can Dance. Sensual tribal music from Australia, utilizing such instruments as the tamboura, manjira, and e-bow, which not only incorporates the mystical sounds which graced the band's debut, but also offers a further variety of vast musical styles.(from youtube)

TWILIGHT MEMORY-Outside Brain Inside My Room-(Slaughter Productions-Italy-1997)

TWILIGHT MEMORY is a project conceived and recorded in Piombino, Italy October 1994 August 1996 by MATTI. This project is dedicated to my pisspiss lost EUROPA and his sons, to all people in anxious, restless, unstable state of mind, waiting for the total end of our foolish civilized world. This recording is a sonic mental journey through an ordinary series of days in a lost European industrialized town, symbol of the glory and shame, fascination and death of our times. With thanks to Zairo, Feds and Kassandra Organisation.
(Note printed on the back of this tape)

Slaughter Productions was the label managed by Marco Corbelli aka Atrax Morgue, releasing mostly his own music and few other associated noise artists. 
Enjoy it.
