Another issue of Pete Spence’s ETZ has appeared (with the next one on the way). This one has photos by Bernard Hemensley on the cover. ETZ, if Pete doesn’t mind my saying so, belongs to a great Australian tradition of ‘ratbag’ magazines. By this I mean other long running low-tech productions like Rae Desmond Jones’s Your Friendly Fascist and Pi O’s 925. All of these mags punche(d) well above their weight and are worth tracking down for much of the work that appears within. Each has, to a greater or lesser degree (greater with YFF, lesser with ETZ) a retro appearance that was/is a challenge to the reader. If you couldn’t stand the heat you needed to stay well away from the kitchen.
