Reviewed by guest blogger: Sam Whitney* with Hayley Adams.
So I was asked to write a “review” of the Yeastie Boy’s Big Mouth 5th birthday zine edited By Stu McKinlay’s talented partner Fritha. I was inspired by the combination of her drawings, hilarious photos, and even funnier cut n’ paste collage aesthetic. The content is a super friends collaboration with heaps of local, off beat artists and writers contributing. In this spirit of deconstruction, and reconstruction I decided to go for a “remix” version. With the assistance of some home-brew, a Beastie Boy soundtrack and the lovely Hayley Adams we sliced up the images and text onto a chunk of cardboard. It’s free form and strange just the way it should be.
