This is about fanzines: I think this is one of the best things Tangents ever published – a piece, back in 1996, on the fanzine explosion of the 80s and the opportunities for e-zines to similarly capture the moment. I’m blogging it because it was inspiring at an early stage in Freaky Trigger’s production, and because the convergence of MP3 technology and easy-edit technology and internet access and everything makes this the most exciting time for non-professional, non-dead music writing in years.
