ZINE REVIEW: YEASTIE BOY’S BIG MOUTH 5TH BIRTHDAY ZINE

Reviewed by guest blogger: Sam Whitney* with Hayley Adams.

BIG MOUTH Yeastie Boy’s Turns 5…
Published by Yeastie Boy’s (NZ) Sept 2013
Format:  Zine 34 pages (photocopy)

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.

ZINE: A zine (/ˈzn/ zeen; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magazine) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier. (Wikipedia.org)
