Radical Review #2 (2009)

Radical Review #2 (2009)
48 pg, A5, xerox, English

The Tangled Lines, Vormit, Noam Chomsky

Just like other normal HC/punk zine, there are lots of article that will make your mind think a bit. They are either written originally by them or taken somewhere (the Noam interview is taken from But that does not make most of the zine's content. There are also lots of advertisement/flyers. Not sure whether they are funded by those advertisement or not but I'm really impressed with the printing quality (or maybe pro-printed, not laser photocopy?) and still selling it at a cheap price. The page where black color used as the background are really sharp and the picture are extremely clear. The layout they used for the interview really look like pro magazine however I wish they can do the same on other section like on the reviews.

This is not my regular reading material though. During one of my visit to Nebiula Heavy Metal Store, I saw this zine hanging at the exit door (like there are many door there haha). The thing that attract me is the back cover and I bought a copy. For my own safety, no further comment on that. As explained in the zine, they are not oppossing the government or supporting the the opposition. Both are the same to them.

If interested, check out their blog or myspace for more info.
