It’s a perzine about Zines, Drugs, and Forsaking Rock ‘n’ Roll, It’s split into three acts.
ACT ONE is about why Alison stopped writing, and what she did when she didn’t write zines. There’s a banishing spell, some Adult Pleasant Activities, and the first of two bingo games.
ACT TWO is about rediscovering zines and music. It’s about finding out that making stuff and telling stories is magical and healing. It features Delilah Bon, Of Herbs and Altars, Die Booth, and another bingo game.
ACT THREE is a surreal reviews section, which seeks to find out what happened while Alison was away. It features contributions from two former Bubblegum Slut writers, Sexy Dave and Bison, plus cameos from several artists who were regulars in the Bubblegum demos column, Images show front cover, contents page, and inside back cover.
Every item you see on the back cover symbolises something you’ll find in the zine. The key to the numbers will be printed inside.
