Simba Collection of Personal and Political Writings from the 90s Hardcore Scene
by Vique Martin
256p, b&w, softcover
"Simba Zine started in 1992 as a traditional zine and morphed into one of the most popular and well-respected "emo" zines of the 90's hardcore scene. This a comprehensive collection of the personal and political writings from the 7 years Simba zine was published, plus 5 years of columns and articles from HeartAttack, Fracture, and Clamor Magazines. All personal writings are political and revolutionary in their own right. Challenging gender roles, rules, and assumptions about sex, friendship, and love, never afraid to discuss something "too personal", these writings challenged the way people thought and behaved. Simba crossed the boundaries between the hardcore and riot grrl scenes and was undoubtedly one of the most influential zines in the 90s."
