If you didn’t get to see this awesome video by Josh Mackie (a.k.a. Idiot Forever) a couple weeks ago at the Zine Winter release at Space 1026, see it now!!! It accompanies the zine that Josh made for the project. We also have plans to release his solo album that includes songs from this video later this year!
Zine Winter was a collective project for friends to pool their amazing powers of creativity in defiance of winter’s inherent ‘slowing’ properties. It was also an excuse for us to orchestrate a gigantic variety show at the fantastic and legendary Philadelphia art institution, Space 1026. It was also SO MUCH FUN but SO MUCH WORK that we will assuredly be doing it again… several years from now.
The performances have ended but the zines are eternal. Or at least their spirits are? No, even those must die. But for the next 10-80 years, depending on your habits of eating and exercise (and risk-taking, I suppose), you can harness some of these spirits as they were intended to be harnessed: as unassuming packets of stapled paper.
What I mean to say is: ZINES FOR SALE!
Our competitive pricing scheme encourages exploration of these 16 diverse avenues of study without punishing the unadventurous. No punishment!
Winter blues is perhaps the worst of the blues genres and by winter blues we of course mean melancholy which, as we now know, is not a form of blues at all but a black or, more precisely, an imbalance (abundance) of black bile in the long disproven humoral theory.
To balance the bile in ourselves and others, we asked a bunch of really fantastic folks to create a zine 1) of any variety, 2) this winter, 3) please. In return, we promised to print and assemble AKA publish the finished products. We’re a lot of things but we aren’t liars when it comes to promises about zines this year.
Join us on April 13th at Philadelphia’s Space 1026 for a night of performances as diverse as these sixteen amazing zines!
As a storm moves in or a shadow creeps up, Scott Churchman’s new album, Ignore That Noise, is now upon us! We are both joyous and solemn, for we’ve yearned to haunt others with these uncanny snapshots of horrors and hexes, real and imagined.
The music is, as ever, spare and beautiful, unique as it is unnerving. It’s bound to rest in the waking and dreaming mind alike.
It is with words, appropriately, that we introduce our first ever literary release, Free Pentagram Rides by Harmon Butcher. Butcher’s words dance like fire and his images also dance in that way. Find out for yourself what everyone is talking about! That’s not to say that people are talking about this book, it was merely an encouraging suggestion to remain informed.
For the visually inclined, Free Pentagram Rides is also also a treasure trove of exclusive drawings by the ever-fascinating Kate Ferencz. This instant classic will be available for a limited time only so act quickly and verify its merit with your hard-earned dollar!

The void left in the wake of Scott Churchman’s last album (2010’s self-titled album, SGMG07) is considerable. After a long wait, his new album, Ignore That Noise, is slated for release on cassette tape and digital download March 5th, 2013. It’s reliably dark and careful while still stretching itself into jarring new forms, as one may expect from such a cloudy wonder of a man.
“Above The Sky,” the first single from Ignore That Noise, is as deliberate and unnerving as it is evocative. But evocative of what? The unknown? Fear in general? We do not know. The emotion is there but a fog prevails. Sounds roll steadily along like hooves over cobblestone and curtains, waves of deep mystery bloom and recede.
