This Zine made it to my hands via Todd of the Cincinnati punk band, SUBSETS. Throat Culture (as Todd explained) is done using the olden ways... Cut and paste with x-acto knifes, scissors, glue sticks and what looks like a type-writer from at least 1998 being verily close-by... How do I know? Trust me, I know.
This zine may, at first, give you that anti-technology feel because whereas it reviews material from bandcamp it has no Fb page to like or even a way to send a copy of this review in an e-mail... The descriptions in the reviews (of which includes a review of the SUBSETS Twothousandfourteen) quickly delivers a view of personal reactions, feelings and memories rather than taking the easy way out and just referencing like-sounding bands... Throat Culture has feeling... It hast passion... It's got groove, it's got meaning*. Each page is a work of labor and direction. How do I know? Trust me, I know.
Containing 26 pages of tape, zine and record reviews with random topical bits and ample amounts of reflections, opinions and seemingly stream of thoughts with comics and even some hand-written pieces... Zines, in general, have charm, or should have charm... When you like a zine, you will find yourself randomly flipping through the zine a number of times. Throat Culture is a good, strong read that is a decent mix of old and new views with charm... Lots of charm. Great zines make the act of putting together zines look easy- trust me, it's not... Zines are harder to do than you think. Support this zine and all other Zines while your at it.
