i'm not actually sure if it matters though, but you know, they were around for a long time.

I always hated this zine. Written by smarmy art school college kids who hated punk rock. Of course, it was filled with plenty of feel good liberal bullshit politics. Good riddance.

yeah, i kinda agree. i mean, i knew some people that wrote for it here and there, and they didn't usually cover music i cared about, but i still kinda like that fact that it was produced in Chicago for some reason. it didn't overly offend me or sicken me so i'm neutral. it's more about the fact that people can't seem to keep independent magazines afloat anymore.
score one for the internet.

We could have easily kept Horizontal Action afloat but we killed when it was the right time, and we didn't feel like doing it anymore. We knew better than to have a color cover and that you need to give away as many free issues as possible, too. PP should have killed it waaaay back, and then they wasted so much time/money on stuff like Bail which was really, really a bad idea. They gotta know when to fold 'em!

hated punk rock

my good friend was the punk planet review coordinator guy back in the mid-nineties, and I know he definitely "loved" punk rock, so RIP? I don't know how involved he is now, so good riddance?

I thought Hit List kinda sucked, too. But Punk Planet was in its own league of suck.

You think everything sucks, shit talker!

I thought Hit List kinda sucked, too.

The only reason Hit List kinda sucked is becuase they had that one guy who helped found it who liked all that crappy hardcore stuff like American Nightmare. I mean I can deal with sifting through D-beat and screamo type hardcore bands to get to the good stuff in a rag, but all that "tough guy" or emo pansy type hardcore was stuff I would never listen to in a thousand years. But when the covered Rock'n'Roll stuff it was pretty reliable.
I think Razorcake is the best mag going now, even though you have to wade through all those No Idea type bands.

Punk Planet was easily one of the WORST "zines" around. really. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

The DWARVES issue of the Hit List RULES!

The stories those degenerates told! I liked the series Hit List did on the Fastbacks, too.

That guy currently does AMP magazine, which is one of the largest purveyors of that which sucks, though they used to have some pretty good columnists (Norb, Whiskey Rebel, Jack Rabit--all of whom used to write for Hit List).

At least Hit List ruled more than it sucked. What more could you ask for? Something that totally rules? BORING

bring back Sick Teen or Skate Muties from the 5th Dimension

everything else makes me barf
Posted: Jun 22, 2007 9:27 am
Yay. But unfortunately they'll still have a place to spew their shit in the NW media it seems. Too bad for us.
Posted: Jun 22, 2007 12:28 pm
Norb's been talking for years about reprinting old Sick Teens, but it's never happened. I told him someone would probably do a bound mega-edition (I've had people wanting me to ask him), but he doesn't seem interested. No one does zines like that anymore.
