NOTE:  We are now back in our home at 5308 65th Avenue SE, Lacey, WA 98513 - so, please send ALL materiel for review to the Lacey address - that's Zzaj Productions, c/o Dick Metcalf, 5308 65th Avenue SE, Lacey, WA 98513!  I still don't have COMCAST available yet, so please use zzajunique@hotmail.com until I'm able to get high-speed in the house again!


We don't take poetry submissions by snail; please e-mail poetry submissions to zzajunique@hotmail.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!
