About the Author

 

I am a twenty-something queer photographer and music nerd living in Brooklyn, NY.  I spend my free time studying kung-fu, riding bikes and trying to learn too many languages at one time.

I generally gravitate toward bands with a unique perpective or ballsy attitude and have a weak spot for guitar-based rock n roll.  I believe punk never died, and was not in fact started in the 70’s.  Rather, that it is defined as an outsider point of view in music that seeks to break new ground through a democratic approach to music making.  From skiffle to post-punk, from new wave to riot grrl – I truly believe these are all connected.  It is this same ‘outsider’ music that resonates with me most, both as a music lover and as a music writer, and will thereby graces the pages of this zine.  I started this blog with the goal of finding other-like minded folk out there – who enjoy hunting for new music, old vinyl and rare releases.

For those interested, or just plain curious, my photography can be found here: MeganElyseCain.com

    So basically I think you’re my musical soul mate.
