I’m thinking about having a southern blogger meetup one day coming up. It will likely be at a farm in North West Georgia with a lowcountry boil, lots of beer, some music, and a little camping.
reblog if you are in the area to spread the word or show interest.
who’s with me?
I’m all in.
The Unwound issue. Our first in newsprint. It sold terribly. Maybe 200 copies? Perhaps the “Wound-Un” of the cover was confusing? Yet it was one of the best. Cover designed by Josh Hooten, people said it was a Punk Planet rip off, but that would mean that Josh was ripping himself off, since he also designed PP. Approximately 800 copies went into curbside recycling when HIOQI moved from Los Angeles to Chicago.
For the record it was very confusing.
I came across Unwound pretty late in the game. They were already done by the time I had invested any real time in their records, so I’m stoked to see their entire catalog is being reissued.
Bonus: the current issue of Maura Magazine has a pretty exhaustive history. Worth the read.
