My name is Josh. I have been into hardcore for a long time and now, I’ve decided to create a zine.
It is something I have always wanted to do and over the past couple of years I have felt more motivated to do so. I am from the UK but I want to try and cover a broader amount of stuff with my content. I feel like zines are still an important part of the hardcore and music scene and believe they don’t get enough credit or attention. I want to change that in trying to keep the fanzine scene alive!
I enjoy finding out information about bands past, present and future so other people have to right? I want to run this website alongside to bring you extra goodies, so I am going to try to keep this on a regular update. I would like to thank all the people out there involved in keeping the fanzine culture alive, you are my inspiration along with everyone involved in hardcore in general, without hardcore I and this wouldn’t be here doing this.”
It’s been a long time coming but here it is finally, Gutter Groove fanzine issue 3! Featuring interviews with: Billy Club Sandwich, Existence, Integrity, E-Town Concrete. Articles on Children Of The BURN and Cartel Records, and a bunch more random stuff.
Quality reading for the quarantine-era!

A conversation with Adam Kiss about the upcoming Contra record “Collective Unconscious”, political propaganda, modern people who use scales to rank themselves, and hardcore related stuff. Dedicated to the core and the colossal man (he got radiation and grew real big)! https://contrahardcore.bandcamp.com (Pics by Radi, Gergely Ofner)
