Jupiter Beat

This is a fun to read, primarily perzine publication from Portsmouth. I have no idea where it is but I get strong impressions of the place from the pieces here. Whether it is a change in attitude at Bull Moose Records — a once independent and now corporatised store —to a call for a Goth Club, there is a vivid world bursting from these pages. I was surprised by the inclusion of two poems by Suzanne Somers (yes, her of infomercial fame) I’m haunted by the rather unremarkable lines in Somers’ poem “Maybe Tonight.” “If you fall in love with your lover/does it spoil everything?” (Brian Burch).
