Slow Songs For Fast Hearts: Shotgun Seamstress


Shotgun Seamstress

“Shotgun Seamstress” is the name of a zine edited by Osa from Portland band the New Bloods…

By black punx, for black punx, “Shotgun Seamstress” continues in the vein of other critiques/commentaries/celebrations/creations such as the documentary “Afropunk” and the zine “Evolution of a Race Riot”, except that this is made for the feminists/punx/queers of today and issues are still being produced (I think number 3 is in the works) so it features articles and reviews about current happenings (as well as delving into the past and bringing to light a whole bunch of bands and artists who more people should know about).

Issues 1 & 2 has writing by US punk/indie allstars like Brontez from Gravy Train!!!/the Younger Lovers, Chris Sutton from Dub Narcotics/Old Haunts/Spider and the Webs, as well as Osa & Adee from the New Bloods and more.

I love this zine! It’s great to read about your favourite music genres while also only reading about people of colour…woah, what a novel experience, no need to try and twist around your daydreams so in your mind’s eye you look like the white face performing in the photograph…

If you live in New Zealand, you can get this zine from, and I think Microcosm Publishing sell it to everyone else in the world.
