The Ruby Slippers #5

This zine’s review will also be a very short one, as I have already did a review for this zine that was eaten by the move back to the first server and also because of the fact that is a completely music-related magazine. This zine reads like Rhythm and Booze but with less of a scene-specific styling, focusing on more of the English music scene, pretty much constantly bashing the American music scene. The zine is pretty repetitive, without much in the way of different looking or reading pieces to ensure someone fodder to read through the entire magazine. If I was interested in reading about bands that are constantly covered in Rolling Stone alongside pieces about bands that no one has ever heard of in the United States, this would have did a lot more for me. The zine reads a lot like an issue of those free magazines that people leave in front of the record stores that are all about music. Personally, I like a variety of pieces, and The Ruby Slippers really doesn’t do that at all for me. However if you would prefer this type of magazine, I would have to tell you to send about $2 or $3 or a trade for this magazine to 91, Wyre Drive, Boothstown, Worsley, Manchester M28 1HN.
