OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ZINE PEOPLE NEEDED


Hi Fam,
First of all, big thanks to everyone that contributed to issue no.11 of Soda Killers. Your copies have been mailed out. If you don't get them by 8/5/16 let me know. The issue is out now and can be attained through the link below. Please spread the word by mouth, on social media, or whatever.

http://hotdogdayz.bigcartel.com/product/soda-killers-magazine-11

And with that, the call for submissions for issue no.12 is now open!

Soda Killers is a punk, rap, and graffiti zine. Although it's not limited to just that. I'm looking for people to share their stories/reviews/musings about (IBNLT) punk, rap, graffiti, music, art, metal, youth, hardcore, wrestling, hoops, film, crime, general mischief, etc.

I'm writing reviews of some old cassettes and am desperately trying to track down a couple local graff artists for interviews and art. I've got one person writing about some comic books, and another one sending some rail flicks. Aside from that we're wide open. I'm going to be at Twin Cities Zine Fest in September, so I'd like to have issue no.12 wrapped up by the end of August of possible.

All contributors will receive modest compensation and a handful of free copies. If you have an idea or know of anyone I should reach out to, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks,
Nathan

Soda Killers Magazine #11 OUT NOW~!


SODA KILLERS//PUNK, RAP, AND GRAFFITI MAGAZINE//ISSUE #11
Minneapolis, MN + Summer 2016

Happy to announce the release of Soda Killers no.11. Inside you'll find an exclusive interview with Twin Cities graffiti artist ERGOT. (He also did this amazing cover.) We go pretty in-depth and get all interpersonal relations-y. I think graff heads, sociopaths, vandals, and regular people alike will dig it.

There's also an interview with Chicago-based punk trio Boilerman, whom are both great guys and funny guys. Also very serious guys. We talk about things like Taco Bell breakfast, Justin Theroux being the best punk ever, and what it's like living in a world where cops can get away with murder whenever they feel like it.

And rounding out the interviews portion, I have a candid conversation with Cleveland punker (and kinda legend, depending who you ask) Tony Erba about pro-wrestling, his band Fuck You Pay Me, memories of Thrashfest III at Babylon Cafe, and if the well-being of performers matters if the match is good.

There's also awesome contributions from the likes of Clell Miller (Luke Sick), Dan Lactose (DJ Eons One), and Doom Goblin. Clell talks about rap tapes, heady beers, and the Golden State Warriors. Dan recalls his days coming up in the mail-trade world and shares a story of an incident from a Capitalist Casualties show back in the day. Doomy G muses on her oppositional disorder and how it applies specifically to that shitty band Radiohead.

The issue is rounded out by ERGOT graff flicks and a healthy chunk of record & tape reviews.

36 pages cover-to-cover, half-size, photocopied in black & white with some color. As always trades are encouraged. Or you can just buy it here: http://hotdogdayz.bigcartel.com/product/soda-killers-10

If you're not able to trade or pay for it, that's fine. Just send me an email and we'll work something out. I'd hate for you to not get your hands on this just because you're broke. Email is: thee.n.o.b (at) gmail (dot) com

I'm just going to say it: Soda Killers is the best punk, rap, and graffiti magazine on the planet.

HDD Radio #48: New Punk & Hardcore, Intelligent Hoodlum, I'll Fight You (Maybe), and More


Despite my life being hectic as can be right now, I squeezed in some time to record a new episode. When I'm not spinning new punk and hardcore records and tapes, I work myself into a shoot about using the middle initial in my name, challenge imaginary people to fights, and mispronounce a bunch of Spanish and German band names and songs. I toss in a few wacky numbers from the late -'60s, early-'70s, and early-'80s, and a couple Nick Bockwinkle & Bobby Heenan AWA promos, and bookend it all with some Tragedy the Intelligent Hoodlum tracks. Hit me on Twitter and Instagram at @OMG_NOB and/or email me at thee.n.o.b (at) gmail (dot) com. And please take a moment to check out hotdogdayz.bigcartel, where you'll find zines, mixtapes, tote bags, and bunch of my old cassettes that I'm selling.
