1604862203 Burn Collector compiles the first nine issues of Al Burian?s sporadically published and widely acclaimed personal zine. Beginning in the mid-nineties, Burian distributed his work through the tight-knit network of the DIY punk music scene. Burn Collector caught on because of its unusual content?in a scene rife with dogmatic political diatribes and bland record reviews, Burian presented his readers with humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings, nuanced descriptions of odd locales and curious characters, taken mostly from outside of the punk milieu?and also because of the author?s narrative voice, which reflected the literary influences of Celine, Henry Miller, or even David Sedaris more than the influence of his contemporaries in the zine world. writing in Burn Collector blueprinted a post-punk persona that was smart, strange, political but not correct, attached to subculture, but striving also for a connection to the world at large, and to the greater themes of human existence. book went through six printings, along the way garnering acclaim from readers, inspiring a film (Matt McCormick?s 2009, Some Days are Better than Others) and a major label album (Thrice?s 2003, Artist in the Ambulance). More importantly, the book inspired readers to write and self-publish: to do it themselves, in the true punk spirit.

More Description

A compilation of the first nine issues of the author's sporadically published and widely acclaimed personal zine, this volume reflects the do-it-yourself attitude of the 1990s punk music scene and includes humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings, and nuanced descriptions of odd locales and curious characters, all of which were taken mostly from outside of the punk milieu. This new release of a cult classic shows the far reaching influence of self-publishing with contemporary popular indie culture and bridges the gap between sub-culture and the world at large.
