Niche Homo Issue #2

Sometimes I miss the good ole feel of a hand copied zine... sweat mixed with toner and crude drawings. Well thankfully zine culture hasn't completely met with sweet sweet death yet and the UK's Niche Homo is keeping you reading on the subway and in the bathroom in style. Nab a copy of issue one or two from their site HERE.

Issue 2 is 56 pages long and features interviews with Fucked Up, Vivian Girls, Halo of Flies, Bilge Pump and Hipshakes, plus writings by Oxbow’s Eugene Robinson and a whole bunch more.
