Zine Alert: Teenage News Hits The Scene!

Teenage News zine
It's no secret that here in the Conspiracy M.E.D.I.A world HQ, we're fanatics for music zines! The Reverend buys music zines like Shindig! (U.K.), Flashback (U.K.) and Ugly Things (U.S.) on a regular basis, reveling in their coverage of music that you would have to scour the Interwebs for hours in order to find. So, imagine our glee (like a schoolgirl huffing fingernail polish remover) when we received an email from Gus Bernadicou, the founder and editor-in-chief of a new music zine called Teenage News!

Like the good Reverend, Gus seems to think that there's room in this world for music criticism and rock 'n' roll journalism in a print format (tho' he's hedging his bet with a digital version of the zine). The jam-packed inaugural issue of Teenage News includes interviews with Kim Fowley, King Tuff, Pat Loud of American Family, Dave Faulker of the Hoodoo Gurus, Sylvain Sylvain of the New York Dolls, Todd Rundgren, Andrew Loog Oldham, and the rag's cover girl, the one and only gorgeous Cherry Vanilla!

There's plenty more to be read in between the covers as well, so check out the Teenage News Facebook page and find out how to get your copy!
