Humanbeing Lawnmower #2
Review:: With all these foreigners taking up the magazine racks, we're lucky to have Human Being Lawnmower fighting the good fight out of NYC. Issue Two is on the shelves, and features plenty of Punk Magazine-styled comics-n-rock'n'roll goodness. Great interviews with Gary Panter, Andy Shernoff (he doesn't like the way 'Go Girl Crazy!' sounds!), Apache, Jesse Hector (plus a Thug Rock Top 50!), Mark P., double-shot of Groovies with Roy Loney and Cyril Jordan, plus a whole lot more (Mike Edison, Eddie & The Hot Rods, etc...). The interviews hit hard and get right to the point without a lot of fluff. The real genius is to be found in the reviews section done entirely by Jesse Gasface, who is apparently trying to give Flamin' Waymon Timbsdale a run for his money! Spectacular! Digest-sized, thick and packed with comics too! - $5

Humanbeing Lawnmower #1
Review:: New York City has been home to great punk zines in the past, and Human Being Lawnmower continues that tradition. The first issue of HBL is a delightful NY-centric piece of work, digest sized and a bargoon at only four bucks for sixty pages. Obviously reverential to John Homlstrom's landmark zine PUNK (and John gets a good interview in HBL's pages along with reprints of some of his comics) and the fun-loving Creem, it's a great mix of interviews, essays and lots of comics. The labor of one Mr. Avi Spivak and friends, there's a good blend of old bands and new. The old being an interview with Zero Boy 1 Paul Mahern and some face time with Dead Boy Jeff Magnum. The new being an insightful convo with DC Snipers and a page of Q&A with the Baby Shakes. I guess the interview with Mike Chandler of the Raunch Hands falls somewhere inbetween. My favorite piece is "Top 10 Under-Rated Records by Over-Rated Bands" from Aaron Lefkove, the type of list/article I'm always a sucker for and always mean to write more of myself. Also of note is a well-written essay parallelling the lives of Arthur Lee and Syd Barrett from Don Bucco, a swell page of snapshots devoted to "Grave Diggers" where you're invited to send in your own pic of you at the final resting place of some of your fave deceased (Merle Allin sighting! And Johnny Ramone has an awesome tombstone!) plus a few pages of opinionated record reviews that are fun to read. And like I said, there's plenty of comics filling in the gaps, both new and reprints from classics like Viz and the already mentioned Punk. Highly recommended, this one will last you through a few ruthless duke sessions. - $4
