View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Simba zine started in 1992 as a traditional zine and morphed into one of the most popular and well-respected "emo" zines of the nineties hardcore/punk scene. This is a comprehensive collection of the personal and political writings from the seven years Simba zine was published, plus five years of columns and articles in HeartAttack, Fracture, and Clamor Magazines. Also included are interviews conducted in the mid-nineties with TEXAS IS THE REASON, SPLIT LIP/CHAMBERLAIN, Dave Mandel [Indecision Records], Jeff Unger [Greyhouse], Jon Hiltz [Born Against/Greyhouse], Jordan Cooper [Revelation Records], Kim Kinakin [SPARKMARKER], Leslie Kahan/Lisa Ogelsby [HeartAttack Fanzine] and Kim Nolan [Bark and Grass Cookbook]. All personal writings are political and revolutionary in their own right. Challenging gender roles, rules and assumptions about sex and friendship and love, and never being scared of discussing something "too personal," these writings changed the way people thought and behaved. Always searching, always questioning and always punk, Simba crossed the boundaries between the hard- core and riot grrl scenes, and was undoubtedly one of the most influential zines of the nineties.
