Life Is A Rip-Off: The Zine Part Two
Street Date: 01/08/2016
LIMITED EDITION: SOLD OUT
Life is a Rip Off Part Two is the second installment of record reviews coming at you from the Olzone courtesy of Wolf Eyes' John “Inzane" Olson aka Inzane Johnny aka American Tapes. Eventually to be a full length book, Part TWO is the next and FINAL three month installment before the complete book (it's going to be all perfect-bound and sold at bookstores) covering all twelve months is published. But LRIP2 is more zine than book. It's handmade. It's hand-stamped. It comes in a manilla envelope. If you're wondering which Staples Singers record might be for you or what they mean to Mr. Olson, look no further. As Olson says himself, Who’d a thunk that a nuclear-soul diving flaming kamikaze Nuclear Warhead Bomb would have been constructed via the Sunday Morning shadows of Chicago via 1948 from “Pops” Roebuck and his three children????. Or what about all those punk rock, hip-hop, and metal demo tapes that you may have missed like Mantas : 'Mantas Want You to Die!' exclaims the deathzombie evil creature from the old advert inside. HELL YEAH they do. Seeing how this demo beast is a hand full of years before the mighty Repulsion I’d say that this rancid rotting lofi flesh shredder is just GROUND ZERO for US death metal. The evil gnarled twisted kind that just went on . . . LRIP2 is the place to go for tapers, demo-heads, metal-heads, punkers, rockers, rastas, hippies, jazzers, and anyone else who wants to learn more about music, discover new music, and take a peak into the layer of the Olzone.
