ive been meaning to post a message about dollface for awhile now... amy
baker is ha;lifax's zine queen but unfortunatly thats a title earned
without much competition. there simply is no halifax comix scene and not
much of a zine scene either.. the true grandaddy is chris yorke and his
gypsy times zine.. chris has put out hundreds of fucked up zines over the
last number of years... anyhow chris is not for all but if you like
messed up poetry and a strange political agenda then drop him a line at
2317 hunter st. halifax ns. b3k 4v7 issue 27 or 28 (cant remember what
he's up to) is $2 .. help support a starving artist who is also a
fugitive from the law...
speaking of fugitives:
gordon isnors zine left hip is comming out with a truely stellar 6th
issue ... ive got my contributers copy and its slicker than ever ..
though gordon slipped in a couple choice typos under much stress...
anyhow its got some comix (amy baker, mArc bell, me ) interviews with
some bands and of partiucular interest to sloanetters is the cover story
interview with chris murphy.... yes upercanadians you heard it right
chris murphy ... he spills all about fans , touring, swimming and
strange practical jokes sloan play on eacjh other (those guys are truly
anyhow accompning this issue is also a tape featuring tonnes of bands
baby including the superfriends, murphy, matt grimson , state champs
etc.. etc.. the tape isnt quite done yet so the line up isnt fully
anyhow its quite possible that this was the rumoured halifax comix zine
with 7" that someone here heard about... but i dont know ... i ytalked to
gordon about my dream of assembling a comix anthology but i doubt it will
ever happen due to the extremely depressing lack of comix from down here...
truly the best east coast (though he now lives in montreal ) comic is the
mojo action and companion unit... by marc bell.. mark truly takes one to
school when he shows how it should be done ....
gordon also puts most zines to shame with his exceptionaly high
production values... its about time someone did a zine right for god
sakes... learn how to use long arm staplers and cutters people...
anyhow i guess i got a little off topic here.. james is right in giving
amy justifiable praise her dollface comic is getting better with each
issue and starting to loose its julie doucet influence as it goes along
anyhow gotta split ..
