GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: Vanity Projects
Describe your most recent zine.
I haven’t worked on a zine in a while. The last one was the Big Whup Industries zine back in 2009. It was a fanzine made by Big Whup and devoted to our friends; I contributed interviews with Jon Barba, Facts on File and Uli and the Gringos as well as essays on So Many Wizards, American Gil and the Major Dudes, and Facts on File.
For Zine Fest, I’m also doing fanzines. But instead of promoting local artists, I’ll be writing about some of my musical heroes by sharing personal narratives about my favorite songs by them. Each zine will come with a glittery cassette mixtape with the songs from the zine as well as a cover version by me of one of the artist’s songs. I’m doing Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, ABBA, David Bowie, R.E.M. and Talking Heads.
