cf: yeah. you can hardly tell. tell us about your fanzine.
james: it was called and suddenly and it was done out of my parents’ basement I started it right when I got outta high school and the last issue, #4, was finished the week before I moved to vegas. I think there were 20 copies of the first one, and 50 copies of the second one, and by the time #4 came out, that was the big sellout, there were 200 and dutch east was actually distributing it. it started out kinda artsy-fartsy. I had a really good time doing it. I liked interviewing people. the funny thing was I didn’t receive one promotional record because I didn’t know you could send your magazine to record companies and they’d give you free records for the rest of your life. I just went down to the radio station and put em on tape and wrote reviews.
