✨✧ RoctoberIssue #52 – Nothing Special 25th(ish) Anniversary Issue ... Magazine
Roctober, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue return to form for Roctober – one of our favorite magazines in the 90s and 00s, and a publication that always gave us plenty of bang for our buck! That tradition certainly continues here – as the hefty zine runs for well over 120 pages – stuffed to the gills with the mix of punchy prose and comics that always made it such a standout! This time around, subjects include Linda Gail Lewis, Lady Saw, The Shaggs, Divine, Exuma, Jobraith, Ozone, Nardwuar vs Marc Maron, Will Glover, and Curtom soul legend Holly Maxwell – all with the sort of presentation you won't find anywhere else. Great to have Roctober back – and nice to see someone still invested this strongly in the zine format too! Magazine
(Includes limited edition trading cards – a random mix that includes Jobraith, Sun Ra, Blondie, Andre Williams, and Willie Nelson!)
