WARNING Fanzine was published from 1982-1985, and lucky for us, there were enough people starving for music and culture that WARNING became this "thing" -- something way bigger than it ever was. And, as weird as it sounds, 40 years later, I have had several requests to make back issues available. WTF people. Email wasn't even a thing when many of these projects took place. But I get email monthly about shit I did in my 20's.
So, I dug through my archive of shit I've collected in boxes over the years and found all 16 issues plus a limited edition of Nu-Artist Comix, a compilation of comix from artists who submitted drawings and comic strips that couldn't find a place in an issue of WARNING Fanzine.
Nearly 4 decades later, the Record Reviews are still solid. Plus the reviews of Singles and Cassette only releases show you where some of the legends of 80's and 90's got their start.
The first edition of WARNING, equally up to par with zines of that era... that's not saying much. We were no Flipside or Maximum Rock & Roll. But, WARNING had a significant affect on the locals and underground music everywhere because "it happened", and it happened in the least likely place, Alaska.
REMEMBER: All of this was before personal computers, cell phones, Email or having your very own copy machine. WARNING Fanzine was a lot of photocopies enlarged and reduced to fit on the page, and a lot of contact info for Independent Music Labels, Bands and other Fanzines so young people could connect with each other and build relationships outside of Alaska. WARNING Fanzine was distributed nationally and had serious street cred internationally.
WARNING Fanzine "Read it all or not at all."
To this day, I am constantly being asked, "Why don't you put Bombshelter Videos online?", and "How can we see WARNING Fanzine?", and where can I find your NW Bands and Labels Trading Cards? Truth is none of these projects ever made any money. These have always been projects of passion. So, come hell or highwater, the projects were never not going to happen. However, decades have past and things still cost money. So, if your a fan of the work I've done in the underground music industry, consider sending me some cash as a way to say, Thanks Dude!
