The all-women sXe band ‘Doughnuts’ (from Umeå) is interviewed here just after the release of their (last) album Feel Me Bleed (1996). In the band at that time: Asa Forsberg (vocals), Sara Sjogren (guitar), Sara Almgren (guitar), Jenny Johansson (bass; she replaced Helena Löfgren) & Linda Lundberg (drums). They played at the Vort’n Vis (Ypres, Belgium) on 95-08-19…
The zine was sent to me by one of the editors, Henrik Wermelin (then studying at Umeå university). He did this with his mate Ante S from his hometown Njurunda. This issue had also interviews with ‘Purusam’, ‘Endflow’ & ‘Bitter Sweet’, some columns, reviews and a scene-report. The first issue was with ‘SaidIWas’, ‘Battery’, ‘Gainlift’ & ‘Java’.
Before I did Boulderdash with two friends. The first issue was in 1995 and had a lenghty interview with ‘Refused’ and talks with ‘Bob Hund’ & ’88 Fingers Louie’. #2 came out in ’96 and contained ‘Snapcase’, ‘Earth Crisis’, ‘4 Walls Falling’, ‘Sensefield’, ‘Lifetime’, etc. Then I did this one here with my friend Ante. Both of these were pretty basic HC zines. I also did 3 issues of True Self Revealed (from ’97 on) – more of a political zine (in Swedish) – on my own. TSR can be found on the internet (It’s filed as a part of the Swedish internet-museum!). #1 contained and interview with Amazon Press – a feminist zine from Umeå; the rest was articles on political themes. #2 (June 1998) had an interview with ‘Painted Thin’, talks with different people (Todd from ‘I Spy’ among others) on alcohol and articles about love. #3 (’99) contained a lengthy interview with John K. Samson [ex ‘Propagandhi’] from ‘The Weakerthans’; the rest was articles about masculinity.
