  ZzajRANT  Happenings


INTERVIEW with "no one"

Zzaj-rant on "the Political Circus"

Evermore exciting MUSIC reviews  ( over 20 totally fresh musical experiences)

In Issue # 86 (& later):

  More fine interviews & music reviews with today's INDIE "shakers & movers"

NOTE:  I had announced that I wouldn't be publishing this issue until after October, but decided this weekend (9/21/2008, my B-day weekend) that it would be silly to wait, since I already had a ton of great music for review... NOW I can announce that issue #86 will be slightly delayed (probably until mid-to-end November, 2008) due to my impending relocation to Olympia, Washington... we will be moving back in our home at 5308 65th Avenue SE, Lacey, WA 98513 after 15 October - so, please send ALL materiel for review to the Lacey address!  Thanks, and my sincere appreciation for all the great music we've been receiving for review!


We don't take poetry submissions by snail; please e-mail poetry submissions to rotcod@hawaii.rr.com - but DO email us anything you have you would like published - we are sorely in need of more poetry, as some of our previous submissions got "lost" when my HD crashed last month.

I've played in over 65 "bands" .  We will highlight a few of these bands in this (and future) issues. 

Featured Zzaj band for issue #81 - MAD METCALF ENSEMBLE (from live performance sessions in the "Gnu Deli" coffee house, in the early 1980's  (these don't auto-start - CLICK the PLAY button to listen while you read our 'zine - or don't, totally up to you!). 

This grouping featured me doing spoken-word during a studio recording in Olympia, Washington.  ENJOY!
