Man, does this zine blather on or what? Haha! Its like how Amish Drive-By used to be. There are a lot of these types of these fanzines on the east coast, and I really have no clue why they are so large. Specifically, this zine is racist, sexist, classics, and generally whatever -ist you can come up with. Iâ€™m not writing this review to condemn anyone. Specifically, this magazine just runs a little too long on the articles, primarily the Trainman story. The interview with Kevorkianâ€™s Angels, while being very much on the long side, is done in such a colloquial matter to make it somewhat interesting as opposed to be one that drones on. I donâ€™t know if there were issues before this or not, but I really didnâ€™t get the whole scope of what the Fat Nugs were. I know that itâ€™s a big joke, but whatever. But, one the positive side, the most memorable piece in this magazine would have to be “The Shit of a Lifetime”, which is fairly descriptive in title. If you are looking in a more crude than Get the Strap, here it is. Send a buck to Beakey, 63 Partridge Hill Rd, Braintree MA 02184.
