Rather than a plethora of reviews, “Speek Evil” focuses on a handful of topics, a first-person story from a rock and roll luminary and a feature record each edition. So you can dive into what happened in the wake of Robert Johnson selling his soul, how Grindhouse a survived their last night with Lemmy and Ron Jeremy in Los Angeles, and what went down when Gilli Pepper (of Nancy Vandal) met her hero Johnny Teen.

If you’re a Neptune Power Federation fan who wondered from where The Imperial Princess Screaming Loz Sutch came, edition five will enlighten you. And if you were unaware of how record propducer Sir Tungsten Dudly Hemmersley changed the course of punk rock history, prepare to become enlightened.  

Author Murray Engleheart, Tim Rogers, Ray Ahn and JJ Speedball all get page space. There’s sage advice, too, when we’re told to listen to ‘70s Nuge and not the contemporary version.

Visually, “Speek Evil” is stunning, with heavy use of grey tones and a general ambience of decay dominant throughout. Skeletal ghouls and barely there, strung-out caricatures abound. Cop a peek here. The humour is omnipresent and most definitely black.

Originally funded through Pozible with subscribers copping bonus stuff like this Neptune Power Federation single. Hopefully the subscription thing will re-open now “Speek Evil” is on its feet. Keep up with the publishing schedule on Facebook.
