From the former ed. of "Mutated Viruses", this is one incredibly energetic poetry 'zine, plus a coupla proses. Where the Beat's listened to jazz for inspiration, punk is the background music here (tho i'd guess slamming, not moshing, is the dance style). For ex-sample, from Glenn Shedon: "The diamonds in her head glittered brightly as god's dark elf/cracker her against the sidewalk like a bag of beautiful bones." Style is appropriately reflected in the computer/laser layout, a combination raw and high-tech. The editor's also involved with a forthcoming review-zine called Scrape--write for info.--luigi
