Clock Tower Nine has become one of my new favorite zines. Using a variety-format approach reminiscent of classic '90s zines, Danny Noonan puts together a consistently interesting assortment. Letters, postcards, and the stories of others mix with personal narratives, odd facts, and ephemera.

This issue largely consists of a story about being a roadie for a band, an intercontinental fast friendship through postcards and drunk dials, and a barely-planned cross-country road trip...[ continued ]

Last one! Ten zinesters talk about an album they love. From The Wipers to The Breeders, Elton John to Ol' Dirty Bastard. With great pieces from Billy McCall (Last Night at the Casino), Katie Haegele (The La-La Theory), and Ed Tillman (Manfiesto). My personal favorite: a delve into five forgotten '90s soundtracks.

I F#cking Love This Album is a quick, fun, and affordable read that has a charming made-on-a-word-processing-program-in-1994 aesthetic...[ continued ]
