Having just reviewed issues number six, seven and eight of ANTIPATIA, a Spanish language zine from Barcelona, Spain, I immediately subscribed to their blog to read the issues I missed and to make sure I will never miss any again! The interviews and reports are some the best I have ever read seamlessly incorporating, music, culture and political themes. The blog gives you access to their archives where you can read every issue up to date with the option of printing them out for yourself. Subjects include all realms punk; a really awesome Cuba punk report, the artist/tape label/zine maker Afeite al Perro, a concise history of industry and war as bedfellows, a heads up to good punk from Barcelona, and much more. There is information about their radio station, Radio Bronka, giving access to radio shows from Spain and beyond (including MRR Radio). The blog also has an events list, flyer archive and photo gallery (check out their new pics of ATENTADO!). You can also order from their distro offering zines, books and music (punk and more) from all over the world. The blog is primarily in Spanish with some English, but non-Spanish speakers can still enjoy it to a degree. It is a bummer for those who can’t speak Spanish, because this is a blog/zine would benefit anyone that wants to learn about punks of other cultures in an intelligent and informed way. You guys are really missing out.
