Uhmm. this floppy disk has floated around on my desk for quite a while before getting a review, but the time has come to rant a bit about it. My first reaction was of pure horror, but you know, I have hanged through squats and small punk/diy gigs for quite a long time now and you know, I think I know I understood how Borys reasons. Good points: this floppy disc is free, it's in some way, an ancestor of modern day webzines (not all of them, but conceptually I mean...): it's free infos for anybody, you are completely free of distributing all this packed info monster as long as you want ( by the way you can download it below) and, well, the interviews are interesting and it just does what a fanzine should do, inject some intelligence and good sense in the underground scene, and shed some light on the most obscure bands... Borys, like I used to be a few years ago, is completely immersed in every kind of underground extreme music from doom to death metal hard core grind and punk, industrial dark wave and whatever you can come up with... that's a good choice, considering 15 years ago, the scene was really like this. But on the bad side, I don't like the experiment of a floppy 'zine for the simple reason it doesn't "feel" concrete. You have no artwork, you have no pictures, yellowing pages you can read on the toilet or a physical body that can collect dust on a shelf... well I am too close minded in my old collections... i barely got used to CDs after all these years, (vynil rules)... and now that you have the Internet for free... this is an hybrid which doesn't get me too interested.
