First there was Atom Jack...

...then there was the Rocket Phorum...

...then came the SW@MI Records message board...

...and now we're #TeamSwami (on Twitter & Facebook & Instagram & wherever else online we John Reis fans congregate)

This is a call for submissions for a zine about our fandom. I've been making zines for a long-ass time, and now I wanna do one about my 18+ year love affair with ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT and the many bands that came before and after. But I need your help!

Email polianarchy AT yahoo DOT com with whatever writing / photos / art you wanna share. SUBMISSIONS DUE OCTOBER 1, 2014

Email me photos of your RFTC tattoos, your record collection, fliers & posters & merch & ticket stubs from shows. Write up a paragraph or two (or three! I'm not the boss of you!) about when you first got into Pitchfork or Drive Like Jehu or RFTC or Hot Snakes or whichever band first rocked your earballs.

I really wanna include photos from shows where you & your friends are getting stoked on the bands, especially if you met these friends through the boards! So please, contribute to this zine. My goal is to have it ready for the San Diego Zine Fest!

HEEEY #TeamSwami! I'm pleased to report I've gotten 6 submissions so far. SO STOKED!!! So this harebrained idea may actually end up being COOL AS HELL.

There's still plenty of time for you to email me your stories, show photos, scanned fliers & ticket stubs, RFTC tattoos, etc! polianarchy AT yahoo DOT com

Just got to San Diego for the Hot Snakes show(s), so if you're local and wanna hang with my fat azz, holler. See ya tonight @ Irenic and tomorrow @ Casbah! <3

What's the new deadling going to be? I'd have to dig up some stuff as far pictures go, but I think my mind still works, so I suppose I can tell a story...

I've just been up my loft taking care of some pest control business, and happened across a load of old NMEs so have dug out a few articles from Circa Now era onwards. Will send em over. Hopefully you found my last show/stonehenge pics on my Facebook page...

Yes, thanks so much!

THE DEADLINE IS PASSED. But...message me ASAP if you still wanna contribute. I'll be working on this over the next month, so there's still a li'l wiggle room!

HUGE THANKS to all y'all who've contributed! This is gonna be so great, I can already tell. XOXO

so i F I N A L L Y got this project from my brain to paper, check it out! pick one up from me IRL this Saturday, August 19 at the OC Zine Fest at the Anaheim Public Library or that night in San Diego at the Soda Bar for GOLDETTES & MRS MAGICIAN. 🚀 i'd apologize for the delay -- i got laid off right after i posted the last message on this thread & went a bit mental. then when i finally got my head right, it took me a few weeks to figure out i had too many awesome submissions for a one-off zine! thus a series was born ---> this is volume 1. i'll post up here when i add it to my web shop & digitize it for issuu 🚀
