I'm pleased to announce that Rebel Frequencies will be producing its first ever 'zine for release in mid-June! If all goes according to plan (which it rarely does), this will be the first issue of a quarterly released DIY magazine version of RF.
The reasons for releasing this 'zine are many-fold: first, the events of the past several months in both music and the world at large call for a need to reach past the traditional, web-oriented audience for RF. There are countless music fans out there who haven't yet been exposed to this blog's content who would dig it, and an RF 'zine is a great attempt to reach them. Second: the content, not just of the mainstream rags, but also in the 'zine world, just doesn't seem to really be taking up the sea-change in that is taking place in music--among musicians or audience members. And third, the DIY ethic I picked up during my Hardcore Punk days dies very, very hard, and can only be somewhat satisfied by a mere blog.
Be sure to get a copy! While the 'zine will feature content that has appeared here before, there are also going to be articles that haven't. Don't miss out! If you live in the Chicago area, you'll be able to pick it up at such book and music retailers as Quimby's, Reckless Records, and Myopic Books.
If you don't live in Chicago, you can order it through RF! More will come later on how much this will be, but rest assured, it will be affordable!
