Bart De Duytsche's zine may have been created in Belgium, but its true spirit hails from the big apple and no place else.
The previous issues of The Ghent Decontrol ranged in bands and coverage, but this final issue of Bart's is full-on NYHC worship, in a good way. It's a jam-packed full-size zine featuring interviews with Armand/Rest In Pieces, Freddy Alva/Wardance, Kevin Crowley/The Abused, Patrick Winter/Our Gang & Citizen's Arrest, and all sorts of stories and coverage on Agnostic Front, the Cro-Mags, Absolution, Warzone, The Psychos, and more. Front to back, top to bottom, fanatical NYHC glory in a classic unruly cut & paste style. Lots of flyer scans and pics you may or may not have seen before, and enough content to keep you on the toilet for hours.
Just when you think zines aren't worth hunting down anymore, something like this lands in your mailbox and smacks you in the face. Get this and study up. Bart's the man and hopefully we'll be able to feature more of his archived pieces on DCXX soon. Email him for the info, and buy it. -Gordo DCXX
