Hiroshima Yeah! # 138 August 2016 (zine)

One of the reasons I keep doing this is having the chance to read, appreciate and review my favorite zine, yes you`ve guessed it it`s Hiroshima Yeah! The cover star`s Sandy Denny (1947-1978) was a British folk singer. She sang with The Bunch, Fotheringay, Fairport Convention and she also guested on Led Zeppelin`s fourth album. Now we shall begin with poetry and `joy in diminishing returns`. Here are my favorite pieces
Not having
For me,
The freedom                               
Of not having
The job,
The wife,
The kids,
The car
Beats all of the above,
Hands down.
I was always destined
To be someone
Staring out at the rain.
And finally
Natural end
For a while,
I was obsessed
With you,
Wrote love songs
About you,
Travelled miles
Each day
Just to drink
In the same pubs
As you.
But now,
Bumping into you
Outside a supermarket
As you push
Your granddaughter
In a trolley,
It feels good to know
That all obsessions
Come to their
Natural end.
Man I love this stuff. There`s also `13.82 billion years in hell` (Gary Simmons monthly column this time he explores the theme of the forgotten prisoner) and our monthly episode of `doctor Thornaby` (a readers nightmare that`s for sure). We are to treated with book and music reviews. We conclude things with `Mortimer ` (Mark Ritchie). A short story about hanging out with the wrong people and managing to escape. Contact:
