BEST OF MONGREL ZINE #1-3 & CD COMP

It wasn’t until MZ #4 that we really nailed how we want the zine to look, by decreasing the zine’s size from 8.5″ x 11″ to 7″ x 8.5″, dropping the expensive colour cover, and including a CD Comp with each issue. So we are excited to finally have our Best of MZ #1-3 out which has all the look and content our zine is now known for!

This Best Of issue is a digest sized zine with reprinted interviews from Mark Sultan (MZ#3), the last CPC Gangbangs interview (MZ#2), Bloodshot Bill (MZ#3), Rick Trembles (MZ#3), Cinema Sewer‘s Robin Bougie (MZ#1), The Tranzmitors (MZ#3), and the Pack A.D. (MZ#1). There’s new stuff on here too, including a brand new King Khan interview, another Storytime with Jeff Clarke, and an all new CD Comp featuring odds and ends we’ve had for a while that may not have fit on other comps. Click here for tracklist
