Musings from the past and for the future

Winter – a time for battling the cold and the mould, the rain and the wind, the heating bills and the vitamin D deficiency. But it’s also a great time for music and literature. It’s a wonderful time to rug up and go to a cosy pub to watch a band (or start your own); or to stay indoors and put on a record (or to start making your own!); it’s a great time to curl up and grab a book to read (or a pen and notepad and start writing your own!). After a stint in the European summer, it has been a startling shock to arrive back in the ice-cold bone seizing weather of Melbourne winter – therefore, it’s time to keep being creatively active to keep minds and bodies warm so they can break on through. to. the. other. side.

Do Something!!

Go and see these bands and buy their records (they’ve all contributed to DOAS in the past) – Ouch My Face, Dan Brodie and the Grieving Widows, Midnight Woolf, Magic Dirt, River of Snakes, The Bowers, Jacky Winter, The Stiffy’s, Musclecar, Matt Sonic and the High Times, Ferry Tails, Damn Terran, Howl at the Moon, The Bakelite Age, The Toot Toot Toots, The Once Overs.

About deathofascenester

death of a scenester is an independent publication aiming to publish quality writing with a real voice. death of a scenester will maintain a gritty, punk, DIY underground edge but will also uphold a slicker style. Its ethos is that it would like to strike the ground squarely between a gritty grass-roots zine publication that promotes the total freedom of artistic and individual expression and Realpolitik (pragmatic, honest, controversial) type publications, which have articles and opinion pieces that refer to the generation gap, music, art, immigration, and counter-cultural activities.
