The new issue of Fluke, the long-running fanzine published by former Dogtowner Matthew Thompson, is on the stands now.
Issue No. 11 (40 pages half-size, stapled, offset print) has a fascinating interview by Mark Lewis with railyard legend and renowned mail artist Buz Blurr, a.k.a. Russell Butler, native of Gurdon. Butler is responsible for the ubiquitous "Colossus of Roads" boxcar moniker, seen on the cover of the new issue of Fluke. For more about Butler and boxcar art, check this out. It looks fascinating.
Also included in this issue: an interview with hardcore legends Negative Approach, a personal appreciation of hardcore from Mark "Sledge" Howe, an interview with Little Rock punks The Bad Years and much more. It's $4 and you can get it by PayPal to flukezine at g mail dot com or send cash or money order to Fluke Fanzine, PO Box 1547, Phoenix AZ 85001.
