Circulation Zero

Present, former and/or punks at heart, Circulation Zero is an “experiment” that has released a huge collection of legendary old punk zines in digital format, available for download!

I was not quite born in time for what I consider the greatest era of punk (late 70’s). But I do recall running to my room to rabidly search through zines, with a pencil in hand to circle new bands to explore and take notes on new finds (wow…I was even a meticulous nerd in my musical quests as a kid). My dressers used to be covered in piles of goth, punk, industrial, hardcore and metal zines.

Production value ranged from horrendous to professional, depending on the publication, but I’m sure many of you remember the tangible satisfaction of these zines. It’s truly a lost art.

All files are ostensibly free, but donations are encouraged to keep the project going. What was your favorite zine?

  1. This post makes me very happy! The world — musically, politically, socially — needs another punk revolution. It was a form of expression that was truly authentic, and I believe it went a great way towards opening up minds and getting young people to think for themselves and develop an open perspective on the world around. Zines and the whole DIY ethos were a big part of that!
